I believe Euge Groove used to frequent SOTW but I'm not sure that he does any more. I think he has the most unique sound and approach to playing smooth jazz and I think his playing sounds deceptively easy until you actually try to do the same thing. So many beautiful little inflections and nuances in his playing make for a really special sound. I offer the following track as a small tribute to his music it's one of my favourite tracks from him. I played it on Soprano instead of tenor as he did on the original recording.

That's a beautiful recording Alex. Your soprano sounds almost as 'smooth' as a flute at places and you capture that style very well.

Euge is still a >member<) here, but isn't that active with posting lately.

Thanks for sharing. :)

Thank you Mark. My wife and I had the children later in life and so glad we did wait. Still only 8 and 11 so a wonderful journey for us every day. Thank you for checking out my tracks as and when you have time. Much appreciated. Alex

Thanks for the tribute and the kind words. You sound incredible on soprano on it. I never would have thought soprano. There is a lot of back story to writing that song that I won't bore you with. It was cut live at Sunset Sound in Hollywood around 2009? I think.

I have a question for you: Who did the track? They really did an amazing job on transcribing things. Especially Tracy Carter's piano. No easy task there for sure.

Let's call that music by it's simple name... masterpiece. Thanks Alex. Feels like you are all in this tune.

Thanks Euge that is really quite an amazing compliment and I take it with all sincerity. I found the backing tracks from a guy in Germany. They are very good for sure. Love your playing Very much and I hope you are keeping busy after this lockdown. Thanks once more for your kind words. They really do me and a great deal to me I can assure you. Kind regards. Alex

That was truly beautiful, Alex, thanks much for sharing.

The music itself was so reflective and sounded so personal I started digging around to try to find out more. Listened to the original on tenor on YT, read the comments, I think I have an idea what the background is, but I would dearly love to hear Euge's "back story".

Keep safe,
Kenneth
