Description
Patrick told me I should. So I did. I couldn't make it better.... This came from his song, http://www.macjams.com/song/66179 Give me the Funk I just added to it is all. This has 6 sax tracks and 2 percussion tracks - 2 vocal tracks there abouts. My great uncle Nick Wigzell ranched the area around Marathon Texas, in the Big Bend area. 'He ranched a hundred and grazed a thousand', was spoken at his funeral. He died and was buried in an unmarked grave for over 20 years. His nephews, (my dad and his brother) found out where he was buried and delivered a stone to his gravesite. It is one of my childhood memories. Patrick passed this song on to me and it got me to thinking about the time Nick got bit by a rattle snake. While he was losing his temper killing the snake he got bit by wasps. That must have saved him somehow because he lived another 30 years. He was from Birmingham, England originally. Landed in Texas at Galveston and never went much further than that.

ya... two grown brothers going to their (deceased) daddy's ranch in Southwest Texas to pick up his old '49 Ford pickup truck. Along the way they are reminiscing about the times and trouble they had while sneaking that old truck out... goin into town to Marfa and Odessa. Hey, there's the treatment right there.

I was wondering why he didnt aks me to to throw down on it before, but then I probably would have tried to finesse it a bit too much and it wouldnt have come out as funky as it is now.

Definitely has an OuttaOrbit surreal vibe, and the swirliscious sax adds funk to the max. Great bit of historical text to read while baking in the Texas sun here and listening to the muse.

INteresting piece
Very avant-garde and with a fine attenuation, mix, with all the instruments. Good combo with you two.

Great story. Makes me think of the two snakes I heard talking the other day, where one snake was saying to the other, that things were so rough for him lately that, He didn't even have a pit to hiss in.

Say thanks for the tune and listen to ya later..............

Gimme da phoneK. Agreed - but then how else do we learn these things? When I got the file from Patrick the percussion loop was a agogo bell or somesuch so I recorded my dumbek over that to warm it up some to establish that the song just didnt have a bunch of saxophones played over it. And then I added turtle shell as the clave beat. Thanks for the listen and comment. I know Patrick is gonna like.

You know from my own material, that I'm all about multiple sax sections. Great sounds. Excellent tone and improv. Hmmm maybe I'm getting a DMB Leroi Moore (RIP) vibe with your sax playing. Good stuff.

Gritty, Urban and Fun!
Cool sense of foreboding as the song builds... Definite 70s "blaxploitation" movie thematic material here... Saxes add to the sense of rainy dread, the busy-ness of the vocalizations in the background keeps the edge taut... A lot of it seems quite saturated in reverb, but where this might bother me in other places, it fits here. the mental pictures are of a desolate, overcast city, back alleys, things what would naturally cause reverb, so it works... Odd that a for song that has absolutely no chordal movement whatsoever, I'm still mesmerized. That was a lot of fun! Very enjoyable, to the last bongo hit.
