    This is some high class funky stuff right here! Pee-yoo! Incredible work! I like how, I believe what it is, the tuba in certain parts of the track. That caught my attention, and made me chuckle, due to being in the marching band, so hearing a brass instrument like that on a track, REALLY made it appealing to me highly. Beautiful work, my friend!

    Thanks allot, Ookami. Glad you like it. That not a tuba, it's a baritone sax. Always been a fan of the instrument.

    Cheers,

    My funky brotha from another mother...You humble us! Coming from the funkiest, that means allot. Glad you like it. You taught me, that if funk is wrong...I don't wanna be right!

    Maybe one day I can be as funky as you...Nah, probably not!

    Glad you're back.

    Cheers,

    Man, that bass guitar is killer!!! I saw it was MIDI, but I had to change my ears' pants after 5 seconds! I wish I could play like that, but I cam at the bass from the wrong direction. As a guitar rather than foundation and percussion.
    Enjoyed this a lot.

    Thanks allot, Evan. Yeah, that is a cool bass line. It works well with my drums. I've worked with many good bass players and some guitar players make very good bass player, but you have to approach both instruments differently. When you do this, your bass playing will improve. If you play a bass like a guitar, you are just playing a very low guitar!

    Cheers,

    Definitely a vintage sounding funk track! Great style of mixing! I find that this song tells a story in a way, but I haven't heard the original. Good work!

    good track!
    I of course enjoyed the guitar and the drums, nice "solo" at 3:12 ... in my headphones the level of drums is a bit too low on the rest of the song... I need to listen again on a bigger system :-)
    Really like the bass part: is it midi?

    Thanks, Domenico. This was another that I had almost finished and thought of checking with Franco to see if he could add something to it, so he did the tasteful guitar parts. Yes, the bass is midi.

    Ciao,
    Franco & Scott

    Love those short sax fills and those vocal fills as well. This has such an upbeat and happy feel to it and is a good way to jump start my day at the loop! Nice clean, jazzy feel to the guitar, some fun percussion and an excellent mix, you have it all working here Scott!

    Tower of Power, haven't heard that name in years, nice cover!

    Thanks allot, Wayne. I loved reading your thoughts. Yeah, you don't hear about T of P much, but I think they are still going strong. David Garibaldi is my favorite funk drummer and has been with them for years. Another of my favorites by them is, 'What is Hip.' Great drumming on that one, too.

    Ciao,
