Post your takes and comments here for this month's tune - Half Nelson...
wisedude, good take man. some good ideas and a real nice feel. good job
no pressure here man!!! You called a good tune!! we all l know it better since you called it!!!
wisedude, i'm with Paul on that one. Well You Need'nt was a great choice and there were a lot of real eye opening posts that came out of it. Thanks man
Ken, Good take man,like the low flute sound, some good ideas too .... is that a regular gig or the same band different club?Here's my clip. On Flute, Lady Bird in a Half Nelson. I got this idea after hearing Dexter Gordon's version on Prestige with James Moody. I've also included the wind synth player's solo ( hope he doesn't mind)
Wisedude, I agree with you about the length of the track, but you started out strongly with some good ideas and a nice sound.
Hope everyone had a good Easter.
Beautiful tone and playing, so very listenable. My only comment would be your just a tad slower than the beat each time, as if you are not quite on top of the rhythm. If you had a stricter timing it would be perfect!! The Stan Getz version is worth listening to. You'll see what I mean.
I thought you sounded good Ken, nice ideas, nice flow.. great playing.... The rhythm section kinda sucked... the drummer is dropping all kinds of BOMBS!! Sounded like electronic drums..The time was all over the place.. but hey for a sit in, you can't be choosyThanks, glad you enjoyed it. It's a twice a month jam session that I sit in on. It's been going for about 18 months now at a place called Seattle Mobile Expresso. It's next to an old folks home so there's a regular crowd there and it's a nice place to play.
I listened to my recording again and the last half is really rambling and lame... I liked the first half though. Thanks for the complimentwisedude, you have really grabbed that Dexter feel on this one. Sometimes your timing are of almost a 1/8:th note wich is pretty tough to do. Nice feel.
