Description
The last time I played in a song with Vince was live in 1970. Over the last 2 years we reconnected. He's an exceptional guitarist and leader of our former band. He still performs regularly at occasional evening gigs while working a day job as a lawyer. This tune I formerly uploaded under the title of Tenor Sax Reflections* in 2010, a remix of my tune from 2006. This was the first song playing tenor sax that I posted at MacJams after buying a horn once again in 2006. Vince liked it and offered to add some guitar parts. He adds three cool tracks to tastefully accompany the original. After all these years, I'm very much jazzed and appreciative. Thanks, Vince...

It's now in the conversation. Heck, maybe just pull up stakes and go on over. Nothing I would like more than to jam with you guys. Glad you liked the VJ tune. Great to reunite, as you well know. Thamks

Great! So cool! Gives me some vision of where you come from Jack.

Really nice arrangement. Give Vince my appreciatement from Sweden!

This also inspire me in a special way. Thing is I have a friend I haven't played with since around 1973 (which make 40 years ... wow, time...)

I met him just some months ago .. he was here in my house .. we ate and had a good time and talked of old times .. but we never got around to play anything .. dont know why ..

Next time ... yes !

43 years on and mellowing like a very fine wine. Lovely smooth drop with plenty of life in it yet. I might grab me a bottle to drink with good friends. Enjoyed. Thanks to both of you. Regards, Peter.

Nice tone and groove on the sax. Good mix and tight. Must have been a trip to hook up musically with a bandmate after 40 years!

VJ reflections...
Bradford, a big thank you from the both of us. It has been great for Vince and I to reconnect after all these years. He was able to share some photos and a number of band recordings from the '68-'70 time period. Felt like I was regaining something I had lost. Vince is an excellent guitarist and all-around good guy.
