Description
This is from a disc by Dave Stephenson (guitar) and Gary Strong (drums). These were jams that I had been involved in from back in our college days. They got together one night a couple of years ago and recorded this. Dave added keyboard acoustic and bass later. He named it L'Spirit de Gary. It was from their straight jam of about 45 minutes. I named this Big Bear 2 for Dave. This is the 2nd part of their work with my sax additions. About a minute later from when Big Bear ends and up to 4 1/2 minutes further into their project.

Jamming together
The recording captures a moment when the band is completely in sync with each other .. although I think it's those few passages where the sax steps out as a solo that makes for the most interesting moment.

thanks - you've identified the tightness of the core jam which is Gary and Dave, then Dave added bass and 2nd guitar. I had the benefit of following up in the safety of my own little studio here.
Thanks again - Merry Christmas!

NICE Rock/Jazz piece!
The acoustics have an interesting delay effect and go well with the electric guitar. The Sax is Killer!! Awesome!!

Not all who wander are lost
hehe - this is cool - sounds like it's doubling itself at times - must be the delay effects. Excellent contribution as always with the sax pulling it all together mid way through. Cool track.

Thanks Bud... wish I could explain it all better, but this requires a brew and some barbeque.
