This tune was written on the fly about a week ago when an old friend of mine, whom I used to do alot of recording with back in the late 80's to mid 90's stopped by to jam.
My friend Ray is a bass player, but not quite used to my current style of composing. So I picked some chords for the verse, Em11, Dm11 & Bm11 then another section of Em9 to Dm9....then last section of Cmaj9, Cm9 Am9 Abm9 then go to beginning. I tried to explain to him this was a series of chords to play Dorian mode over. Be he doesn't get modes (yet). The forst recording had 2 electric guitars but upon listening, I thought it was too harsh sounding. I ended up putting a Rhodes keyboard and acoustic nylon string guitar instead. I think it sounds less cluttered and classier. Anyway this is the prototype, not yet named. We are attempting to write and record a whole album as a team. Normally I work alone. But with Ray's funky bass lines and my obscure ideas, I think we can do it. Percussion was a drum machine cause years ago we'd record with one and in the spirit of the old days, I said "Let's use a drum machine" and see how good we can sound.

Ray did fine despite not knowing modal theory. He's just got a natural ability to lay down a good foundation. Good Jazz piece. Enjoyed. Good luck on the finished product. Thanks - Phil

Very nice. Great bass sound and playing - ditto guitar.
I guess there are many ways to approach modal playing
