Description : This is a self indulgence track, with some cool solos from us both. It's a jazz/fusion track in the vain of Weather Report. Franco sent this to me last year, and I started working on it and to be honest, I found it too difficult to play, but I listened to it over and over and went to work on it again. It was a bit tricky, but I think I finally got it. What do you think?

    This was a chill listen and was a vision of sitting in a lawn chair on a secluded strip of white sand at sunset drinking a Corona from an ice cold long neck. Hey that base at 3:05 was penetrating and the kick and hi hat injection at 4:59 was a smooth move.
    I don't know which of you is ferryterry but I presume one of you is. I have used several ferryterry loops and find them to be pristine and feel like they contributed immensely to the rescue of several of my tracks. Thanks for sharing them with us. vic

    Thanks allot, BigPete. Sorry for not replying sooner. We've been having some problems with the email associated with this account.

    Love Heavy Weather! I still have the LP. You reminded me, I did a cover of a track from "Heavy Weather" but for some reason forgot to post it, so just did, and you can check it out on my 'covers' page, if you like: http://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/159326. I also plan to do "Birdland" one day!

    Cheers,

    Outstanding Scott. I played trombone in a jazz group for a while a long time ago, and I have to say this brought back great memories for me. Extremely well done, with some really nice guitar work.

    If anyone believes playing fusion is easy, all they need to do is give it a go and they will find out it takes a huge amount of talent, and you and Franco are gifted with immense amounts of talent.

    Definitely one of the best jazz/fusion tracks I've heard in a long, long time. Well done gents. I hope all is well.

    Wow, Bear...Your high praise really humbles me, especially coming from you and knowing of YOUR talent!

    As stated in the comments, I almost gave up on this one, but it was too good to just let die unfinished. I do love fusion mainly for the challenge. I'm glad I brought it back for another go.

    Thanks much for your listen and comment. Franco and I really appreciate it.

    Cheers,
    Franco & Scott

    I can hear the Weather Report especially the intro, plus I love Jaco P!! Fusion Jazz certainly isn't an easy genre to play or just wrap your head around but I must say this is pretty cool indeed. Loved the muted horn, I used to have a horn player in my old band and I used to love when he would use the plumbers helper to mute the trumpet, lol.

    Way to go guys, sounds awesome, great composition.

    Thanks allot, Wayne. Glad you like it. Right-O...Jaco is the man! I love the story when Jaco went up to Joe Zawinul after a Weather Report concert and told him he was the greatest bass player in the world and Joe told him to get the fu#k outta here! He hired him shortly afterwards. He had some balls, but could back it up.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    Wow, thanks allot, Orlando. That's quite a compliment. I gotta give props to Franco for his composition. He certainly comes up with some great pieces. I wish we lived closer to each other. Arizona and Italy are a few mile from each other! I'd love to do some actual jamming with him.

    Cheers,
    Franco & Scott

    Wow! I loved this one!
    Wonderful!
    You are right, there are a lot of Weather Report atmospheres in this track. Then, around 3:10 we have a Miles Davis section (Tutu era).
    Respect guys!
    Listening to this is pure joy!
    Ciao, Domenico

    PS: the final drum solo is very tasty, maybe not the best way to end a track, but I enjoyed every bit of it :-)

    ScottFranco
    Reply by ScottFranco

    Thanks allot, Domenico. Glad you like it. Funny, I thought about Miles when I worked on the trumpet section, but didn't think anyone would reference it. The drums at the end is a technique I've heard on a few fusion tracks where you fade all the instruments out except one. Than fade that one out. I've used it with other instruments, but never with drums. It just seemed to feel right for that atmosphere.

    Cheers,
    Scott

Description : A fat groove journey incorporating hip hop, jazz, rock and more. Chilled out and rocking, with some big riffs and basslines. The main instruments are saxophone, piano and cello plus some resonator guitar and banjo. Sax is the only instrument not played by me as the parts here were contributed a few years ago by a guy I know. Anything that sounds like distorted guitar is actually distorted cello. Loads of that, including solos, in the second half. No electric guitar or bass guitar. Not much synth work but there are two synth basses and an organ. Otherwise, it's quite an acoustic "played instruments" kind of sound. Lots of drums, including loops, multiple programmed acoustic kits and drum hits. I know Radiohead have an excellent song called Everything In Its Right Place but I still like my title and there's a story behind it (nothing to do with music). Interesting feedback appreciated. Do you have any favourite or least favourite sections? Details are appreciated...

Description : A while ago Danke posted this track, I can't link you to it
because he took it down, he likes keeping his page clean
and simple...Cool by me...
Anyway I added a Bass, in the Bridge and 2 Guitars to the
track, keeping it as simple as possible. with a little Guitar Rock Space with the Bass and Funk with the Guitar jump...
Now if someone has something to say, with a voice
big enough to ride this Monster...Do your Thing...
Send us a link to hear it...

Having fun...Hope you all like it...

Peace...TG.
