Well friends, the Tour De Frantic is not yet over. There was one more. Those who are frustrated by art vs. commerce, middle management, multiple scheduling conflicts, and sleep deprivation may take solace in Movement number 5 of the Tour De Frantic Suite. The latest in a concept album with no concept is here for your pleasure and enjoyment. Basses, fretless, piccolo and otherwise compliment this collection of randomly chosen software instruments and a loop or two.

The Cheshire Cat is at it again huh? smiley
You're just grinning your butt off when you put out stuff like this.

The concept album with no concept is like that show about nothing-- except yours is a TON more entertaining to listen to!

I love the beginning a lot. It's like a combo of Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Mingus, and Weather Report, with some additional backing strings by a full orchestra and let's not forget some Ravi Shankar on sitar!

My only quip about this one is that it seems a little too disjointed towards the end... compared to the others. The orchestra loops are very soundtrack-y at first, but I love how you blended that into the sitar and bass. And that ending-- ah yes, THAT was lovely!

You always downplay the stuff you make. Don't. As effortlessly as you claim to make it, it's always a great listen for us, the listener and the fan! We should all be as talented as you. But then if that were so- -we'd never appreciate gems like these or artists like you!

I need to take some bass lessons. I'm so stale and out of ideas. You're not! Great job!

I like your title craze... completly in tune with your music...
Agree with jdwyer05 that perhaps you gave us too much candy towards the end...
but still I enjoyed the lot...
But I'm a candy man...

How often it happens that I've got something in my head that needs to be played by a musician with literacy and chops I lack. Maybe that's a universal reflex for those who seek to improve. But here it seems you've got both vision and the chops to pull it off. Nice Simpsons allusion at the end. Also when the musical panorama opens up midway it's as if jdwyer's Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Mingus, and Weather Report, give way - I'm pigeonholing my roots here - Rick Wakeman putting a watercolor wash on Topographic Oceans! Not really in any specific way, but that's what this classic-rock ear heard. Soon as I thought it, I realized I had to tell you, jsut to give you a chuckle. Your talent is so appreciated here.
