copied from sotw -nice 1 squeezing in a take when you been busy and sunning yourself etc etc. I always like quotes in a tune, so nice 1 with the Parker to kick off the solo. I see you kept it with selected harmonics usage, using them sparingly, always better, nice 1, flows from top to tail.
yeah a great tune indeed, i like that you used Parker to quote too, nice touch seeing as it is a Parker inspired tune. you probably heard the Parker with strings version, cracking.
Desmond is 'nice' but a bit twee for me, not a fan of his tone but top marks for him being unique tho Cannonball Adderley, Phil Woods, Alex Hann get my vote.
I will say nowt about you going to the match and hob-nobbing with the toon players ))))))
i met him a few times and his mrs, and used to have a band with Solano, we set it up together called the geordie latino's, man we had some crazy alcohol flowing nights staying over at his house, i got loadsa toon player stories, all fun tho, nowt bad.Yea we both happy in the end.Enjoy your gig and i'll enjoy some Toon and ac Milan.
ps,,, to make you even more home sick we played Alan Shearers 40th birthday party at his house last year,WOWWWWWWW what a palace.Now that was niceeeeeeee.He's at a lot of our big corp.golf gigs,he's nearly a band member,,,lols
