Wade you have nailed it. None were really "rehearsed" I did body and soul which was recorded simply testing the keyboard players new home studio..I was standing in his dining room..it was just a one take no practice fluke but it came out pretty..the rock stuff was a live gig, one mic hangin' over the drummer recorded on a pocket CD player..the Jazz Q'tet's are just some impromtu basement jams..some stuff was done in the studio with a rhythm sec that never played together before, but all great players..the session yielded 10 cuts in 4hrs. w/no rehearsal, all first takes warts and all. I wrote the original "Lovin' Lips" as a gag when a guy dared me to write a hokey country tune. That tune was put together in the engineers tiny closet studio and with the help of the the computer for backup rhythm, I brought him the changes and melody he sang my lyrics and added live percussion to the tracks. I didn't have a horn with me but he had a dusty old shooting star alto and some sort of mpc and reed so I just went for it and added the cheeseball horn track..It's obvious that you've been around for a while and played quite a lot. Kind of hard to find the real you inside of this as you're playing many different styles, all very competently though. Although I haven't listened to all, I took in more than a few. None (that I listened to) sounded like they were professionally recorded/produced for release, and some not very thoroughly rehearsed (Black Orpheus), but certainly well played. Sounds like you have paid your dues as a club/stage performer mostly doing covers. I note that you are now in Boulder currently. Want to tell more of your story? High points, low points, aspirations, etc. Could be inspirational for some of the younger/newer players.
