I'm thinking 'The Bear' will be liking this one
Happy New Year
I have to say it amuses me when I listen to some instrumental players, and I use that term as opposed to musicians. In the context of what is deemed a suitable piece of music that they would consider good enough for them to consider it worth there input to play. In my mind it is more of a challenge to express what is primarily a vocal tune ( ie repeated phrasing and a strong lyrical connection to the melody) than to spew out lots of repeated licks and not very interesting improvisations.
Brave choice for TOTM.
This is a commercial album from a respected musician and Tenor player.
BTW . People pay money for this album. People like myself.
Strangers in the night
Well, I wish I had them.I have a huge store off karaoke version tracks for my solo gigs and there very good indeed i think.They serve me very well.
Well, I wish I had them.
The ones I've sampled have turned me off even attempting any improv on this tune - I'd love something less schmaltzy and less synth overall. Am I being picky? Possibly.
