Description : Started out trying to do something in the style of the great Fela Kuti (hence the title) but ended up with this - go figure. Lyrics, vox and keyboards me. Bass/drum loops psychohtropic circle and planet jazz. If anyone wants to try a vocal or anything else let me know.

    Beauteous and amorous myriad of araxes soothe. So jazzy and exprerimental it's got me shedding me skin (from my fingers)

    Bass is excellent. Seems like a long introduction, but why not. Definitely a funky feel, with the whispering and the fingerstyle on the bass, and the syncopated snare pops.

    Nice work.

    Bravo, really loving the music and vox. At times it reminds of Jamoraqui. Killer tune my friend, wish I had my guitar up and running, and jam to this. Whatever happened to PlanetJazzBass. You don't have to answer, just asking myself. Stellar job mate, faved.

    Regards,

    Is there such a thing as Tropical Jazz? You have incorporated the sounds of Nigeria,Kiwi and also Canada via Robbie Robertson in some ways.

    Good work my friend. Feel there are some jazz elements in here as well. Not that I'm an expert on jazz - I'm definitely not lol. Reading the other comment about the vocals, I can see why you've tried to make them less prominent for the whispering effect. Sounds just about right to me but suppose it depends on personal opinion.

    Thank you. I feel the older I get the more time I have for jazz, and less for 'pop'. I kept the vox as they were. They are quiet but still there to be heard if you want to listen, so I'm happy with that.

    Very groovy nice track. The drums are very smooth and fit nice to the track. The vocals are nice but could be more in the mix. Great track!

    Thank you. I kind of intended the vox to be back in the mix. Wanted it to sound like someone whispering in your ear! But I will listen again with your comment in mind. Cheers.

    Oh yeah, great sound and arrangement. The lyrics are brilliant and match the music perfectly. That flute at the end ... wonderful. To me this is a masterpiece.
    Highest regards,

    Very kind words thank you. The lyrics come mostly from a poem I wrote after scattering the ashes of one of my oldest friends at his favorite river. A crazy kayaker who died in a flash flood in switzerland years ago.

    Thank you. I like that these musical births never come out the way you want them to, at least that's my experience. Plans? Yeah nah I think magic emerges through chance and randomness.

Searching for dragon’s eggs behind closed eyes
I paid the ferry man twice but only crossed the river once
one burning bush looks much like another
did your burning bush turn to ashes and dust?
nothing worth holding on to, nothing worth letting go
there’s no ferry man when you cross your Rubicon
a penny for your third eye

the river says
I’m easy come easy go
the rope and sinew of the currents flow
confined by the banks of clay
clay on my fingers, clay between my toes
the bodies messy clay endures
while the river flows
