Midnight Romp (w/ awigze)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is an uptempo swing blues, always a fun groove to play. I've been messing around with this one for a while now, but always thought it needed more than just guitar so never did more with it.

A couple of weeks ago I met Andy (awigze) here after he reviewed my first tune and he mentioned maybe doing a collaboration. After hearing what he could on sax I thought about this tune. Anyway, Andy did an amazing job in my opinion, the sax adds just what the tune needed! The vocal part was Andy's idea, and adds some fun to the tune. Thanks Andy! Here is what Andy has to say:

Andy sez:
Dave hit Macjams on Valentines Day of this year with his cool blues; dark and clean rhythm and lead guitar licks. Immediately there were folks nudging him for collaborations. I was one of them and was happy to contribute to this cool little blues shuffle. Thanks Dave! Next!?

Do you remember when Michael J. Fox played Jonny B Goode in Back to the Future and everyone started dancing about like people possessed and in total awe of the music? Well this is just like that but without the crazy ending lol. Quality tune played with style and class... fantastic

Nothing short of outstanding. That is some of the most tasteful blues guitar playing I've heard in a while. T-Bone Walker would love this! Andy compliments you perfectly.

T-Bone!
A big compliment, I love T-Bone Walker! Such a great sound! If there hadn't been a T-Bone Walker there wouldn't have been a B.B. King. I did a tribute to him a few years ago called "T-Boned", maybe I'll post it sometime. Thanks!

Just right!
Hey Dave, you and Andy fit together just right! Some sweet swing blues guitar is complemented beautifully by Andy's swinging sax. The vocals are also a nice touch. Definite download! Warm regards to both of you, Peter.

Swing it boys
Swing it, bop it, rock on, rock on! Beautiful classic jump blues tune here. It is clear you know the genre well. Both guitar and sax jump, jive and wail as the old song said. This is one of my favorite kinds of music. Well done!

Jump blues
Yes, I love playing jump blues. It's a style you don't hear much these days, most blues you hear now is what I would call blues/rock.
Thanks very much for giving it a listen :)

Playing like Brian Setzer. Tasty licks, swinging groove. Like the walking bass line. Andy's sax kills as always.

Swingalicious!
Great tune and great playing both of you.

Hm. Doesn't Brian Setzer play a 175 or so? Your Fender, great as it is, sounds a bit thinner than I'm expecting for this genre. How about doing something with that PRS you have hanging on the wall?

PRS
Hi Vic, thanks for giving this a listen and for the nice comments on the tune and our playing :)
I actually did use the PRS on this, with the neck pickup to try and get that big body sound, but I agree with you 100%, I didn't quite pull it off. Probably because I'm not as good as I need to be on the production side, it's something I struggle with.
It took me ages to get Andy's sax to the point where he was happy with what I had done. But I'm slowly getting better, and the learning process is a fun one.
Thanks again :)

Fun track! That jumping guitar is excellent. Sax also contributes to the fifties/sixties sound that's happening here. Bill Haley would be happy with this one! Much enjoyed.
