Description : When I heard "Chameleon" by Herbie Handcock back in the 70's I went to one of his concerts (it was great) and from that point forward I knew I wanted to learn to play Keyboards. This track uses the Bass from that track (sort of). I apologize in advance if anyone out there is a hardcore Handcock fan, this is totally my interpretation of the track. PEACE...

Rob just stopping through for another listen. I remember you showing me the melody for this one on the ol Farfisa back in the day! Still digging this one. Peace.

Very cool interpretation. Also especially love and appreciate the drum fill from around 1:39, tight as a... well, as a drum :)

Hello BaoBou,

When I learned that little Bass line back in 1972 I thought I was God LOL. I must have played it 1000's of times on everything from a Acoustic Piano to a Micro Moog (which had just came out) I used it to decide which Keyboard instrument I would buy (Farfisa Professional Gino Vanelli had just released
"Ma Ma Co Co" he played Farfisa)sorry about the rant I may or may not have had too much Coffee. LOL.

Thanks for your listen and comments on this track.

combustible sprit-music, man! you sound good playing on the dirty side, here — it’s a nice revelation to hear ‘hancock’ without the bright finish that characterizes his electronic stuff. the bruised knucks are just massive on that bass right outta the gate, and the funk flows well with the jazz. crazy good stuff!!
Jynxz replied 2nd Jul 2022 - 2 years ago
What's up XStokes,

Hello Alien,

I am an absolute Basshead.
Anytime I get the chance to

Bass, I really enjoy it.

Thank you for your listen and encouraging comments.

Great guitar bass indeed as we of use of vocals. I forgot a site to the Psychedelic that you're also really good at the funk. Nice ad libs
Jynxz replied 28th Jun 2022 - 2 years ago
Whats real CCC,

You know when I get a shoutout from you I check
your comments word for word trying to figure out
what I did that "moved the crowd". Your encouraging
comments keep me hacking away until I reach higher ground.
Thanks for your listen, comments and Fave.

hey Robbie this is class, real funky bro. Herbie Hancock is great, i also recognised the female vocal samples you used I've got them too ghosthack really well mixed great sounding production Jynxz
Jynxz replied 26th Jun 2022 - 2 years ago
What's up Paul,

Herbie Hancock is one of my all time favorites.
I think he has brought a lot to the music scene
in respect to Keyboards.

You can probably find at least a sample or two of
the "Ghosthack Vocals" on all of my tracks. I call them
my "Bro's and Brides of Funkenstien"lol.

Thanks for giving my track a listen and for the encouraging comments.

pseudoble 26th Jun 2022 13:15 - 2 years ago
Love good jazz muso's and Herbie is right up there and this is great too - so cool, so nicely played, shimmering with sophistication, nice sound production too : )
Jynxz replied 26th Jun 2022 - 2 years ago
Hello Ian,

I'm glad you enjoyed this track.
Ordinarily I would have obsessed
over this track for weeks trying to
get everything "just right" but this
one kinda just came to me and since I've
played it over and over in my head for the
past (50 years!)I spent more time deciding which
of the hundreds of VST instruments to use, than I
spent putting it together. It was kinda refreshing
to start and finish a track in one day.

Thanks for stopping by and giving it a listen and
especially for the encouragement with the Fave.

kingmt77 26th Jun 2022 12:44 - 2 years ago
Rob! You did this classic big time justice. That bass line never gets old. The synth tho! The bass! What’s up with that drum business @ round bout 1:40? Nice breakdown too. Ok faved!

Jynxz replied 26th Jun 2022 - 2 years ago
What's up Mark,
You know that sooner or later I was
going to have to give my boy his props.
This was a one and done. I'm glad you liked
my Drum embellishment @ 1:40. I was trying to
stat as minimalist as possible on this track. I
was so grateful that it seemed to work without me
having to go through all the rituals I usually use
that take weeks or sometimes longer.

Thank you for your listen, Fave and continuing encouragement
along our musical journey.

I have this Herbie album, Headhunters isn't it? Crazy album it is! He also plays keys on one of my favorite miles Davis albums In a Silent Way. Your version is pretty different, much smoother but still got that funk. Very cool in fact.
Jynxz replied 26th Jun 2022 - 2 years ago
Yes... The album with the computerhead Keyboard player on it.
The Headhunters were the musical group behind Herbie Handcock.
They specialized in African and other exotic Percussion instruments. At the Herbie Handcock concert I attended they did about a 5 or 10 min solo of just Percussion instruments. It was amazing.
I'm glad you didn't find my rendition of the track offensive, after running that track through my my head for 50+yrs I've got at least 10 or 20 versions of it in there but, this is the one that came out.

I appreciate you giving the track a listen and for your encouragement with the Fave.

Description : Updated 12/2/2022. This is an interesting redo of a funky and fun composition. I gave it more polish by switching to a different drum kit, swapped the flute solo for a synth, then infused more flavor into the guitars, bass and organ. Then lastly tweaking the final master. Can you tell the difference? Let me know. Enjoy.
