One of my fave tunes. I spring it on guys at open mics all the time. Too many drummers can't do 6/8.

Nice take Red. Like you use of repetition.

Ed, you never cease to entertain. Love the fire.

Great track Ant! I'm all over this baby! In the morning....

Ant-killer tone and sweet motific ideas. Smooth and silky the way I love it. Great take.

Ed- Other than the dog party, I think I preferred the mp3 take. Nice ideas and cool tones. Some interesting harmonic things going on there. :dude

Can't wait to jump on this one!

Very cool song, Ant. I've been living under a rock for most of my life so I've never heard this one before. (I did my homework though and listened to the Wayne Shorter version. ;) )

I love your tone and playing, but I especially appreciate the education I'm getting on jazz standards. Thanks for sharing!

I'm gonna work on this tomorrow. :D

GREAT take man!

Unbelievably soulful, hip, and with a tone that's not pretentious.

Thanks Anton for the great backing track!

I had fun on my birthday doing this!

Peace,

Scott
Happy Birthday!

Hmmm.... Ever since seeing Scott live you are riding the bar?? LOL

Awesome stuff! A bit microtonal maybe? Was that on purpose or a side effect of the bar? In any event, I may not post now you bastard! J/k... If I can sneak downstairs now, I'll try and give it a go.

:cool:

Yeah, I'm not really doing the "bar" thing all the time, just on this take, and every now and then.....

I was actually going for some microtonal things.....just trying out something different.....

Now, get to tracking YOUR take!

:mad:

Btw, I escaped into the basement for 10 minutes this morning but was not able to get set up before I had to get ready for work. I'll try to do it later.
