Description : My salute to James Jamerson, one of the most influential bass players in modern music, he played unaccredited on dozens and dozens of Motown number one hits and as a kid I loved that music and still do. The secret to JJ's tone is quite simple, a Fender Precision bass, flatwound strings and a foam mute.....and last but not least learning how to play with feel.

Description : A funk odyssey evolving from the early influences of European and Antipodean minds...we didn't know it at the time but we fell into that rhythmical vortex never to escape called FUNK.
Description : WordyBum has laid some ultra slick vocals on this HipHop instrumental of mine totally transforming my whole conception of the genre,it's been a real learning experience on my part,not so much in recognition of his prodigious vocal skills which are clearly evident but more in the way the thought processes are transformed and channeled in a cohesive amalgam of pure musical blitzkrieging...He's the real deal make no mistake about it....
Description : Zappo is undoubtedly an exceptional composer and arranger and here with almost Machiavellian glee he presents Future in the Past,a musical synopsis of audio time and space,contemporary fusion melded from the shadows of the past...it's deeper than you think.

Description : In 1981 while working at a ski resort during summer I was driving in the local country side while a huge thunder storm was gathering...I happened to look up and saw this hang glider spiraling out of the sky in the most amazingly controlled corkscrew manoeuver I've ever seen...I pulled over and watched as the pilot at no more than twenty feet flared into a perfect three point landing..This guy was obviously a master at his craft...I strode up and offered him a lift and found out he was Juan a Brazilian hang glider expert over for the world championships at Mt Buffalo....two months later I heard that he'd been killed flying into high tension electrical cables in neigbouring New South Wales...this track is in his memory.

Description : The Distance isn't measured in units of length or the passage of time
The Distance isn't something you can see on the horizon
The Distance can be felt though
It's a bridge that must be crossed by everyone of us

This track was made possible by people from four countries Germany,The United Kingdom,Canada and Australia....we are separate and far apart but their is no distance between us.
