This time a jazz piece with all the horns and guitars and piano and keyboards.

This piece started with Tom sending me a short bass riff with piano chords, asking if I felt like building a piece of music around it. It sounded so funky and cool so I said yes right away.

So I started building a piece of music using this riff. I added more chords and let the riff follow the chords. And then added more instruments. Moved the initial riff to the left hand on a piano. And later to a Moog bass. Soon a melody was developed using a bit of blues scale notes also.
Then I added horns, and more horns.

During the process I sent many versions to Tom and he gave lots of good ideas both on instrumentation and the sound.
It was the idea that Tom would mix and master but the files sizes became too large and I used plugs he did not have so instead he guided me to finish the job.

I have learned a lot in this process. It took around two months to do. But it was worth it.

I hope you all like the result. Thanks Tom for the inspiration and that cool riff.

Oh yeah...got me wanting to snap my fingers right away...."snap snap"!

What a super BIG BAND sound once it gets going...makes me want to get up and dance, can't sit still...my head's bobbing and my shoulders are doing some weird dance of their own...lol

Are you guys interested in having anyone add lyrics and sing it? If so I might like to give it a go. ..Jazz is one genre I haven't had the opportunity to try yet.

EXCELLENT, guys!!..a keeper! smiley ~ Cindy

There is something in your must that I Love is the the bringing back the best of things in the early must of the 50, 60's , At least for me I really like that. Because a boomers get older it is so cool to have music you can reflect and get back in time. So whether you see music as the future or past. It is great to have music to reflect to. I like how you keep adding cool and fun things as the music continues such as that FUN lower bass a chugging and cool dancin.

Thanks for sharing

I can see why that catchy opening riff would have grabbed your attention, it's hugely catchy and would have set off all kinds of musical images for you. A lovely jazzy piece, light and playful. You always have such a good command of instrumentation, too. This has a blues feel too with some of the chord choices, but it is much more than that, as you have the trademark unusual KLavrsen chords too!

That's "Collaboration". Back & Forth.. Listening I like the piano riff. There is a nice Jazzy clean feel to this. You KNOW you & TOM
have done a great job. I particularly admire the combination of artistic soup/landscape that is being unfolded in the chord progression & instrumentation vision.

Very relaxing jazz. And, yes, Kenneth, my "Glo" was in 7/8, for the most part. I overlaid a 2nd set of drums in 11 (IIRC) during the section with the wilder synth sounds.
