Trying to Punch My Way Out of a Paper Bag

In this rather fun piece to play, the bass, with it's reverb, depicts the volume of the bag, hence it's cariacture echo, in which I'm trying to escape from. The notes I'm playing get pretty redundant after awhile to indicate having nothing much to say, and also how many ways are there really to break out of a paper bag? Not many but I'm not having much success at breaking out of the paper bag. It just won't tear!


While contained within the bag I mire in non-traditional sequence, which apparently is not the way to succeed. Pretty allegorical in concept. My adherence to non-tradition simply keeps me bottled up in a merry go round of non-compliance. In other words I want to do this on my own regardless of my consistent failure at equanimity.
If I really wanted to get out the paper bag successfully I would have to resort to a more traditional usage of notes that are within the overal compliance of the masses.


Well, I guess I couldn't even punch my way out of a paper bag!

Listened to this a few times now and really like it. The sax playing is spot on, as well as the short story you always like tell.

Fine playing and interesting/fun concept. Was hoping that posting something recently and mentioning your name would stir you and get you to post soon.

I think what I like most is that your style and playing are so identifiable. Truly the sign of a real musician/composer. Hopefully others will take note(s)....not to copy you, or anyone in particular, but to develop their own voice. Many can hear a few bars of (name your favourite player) and recognise their style and "voice". What I've never understood is why they then try their hardest to sound like that person. We've all got our own voice, and Mike has one of the most distinct you'll ever hear.

Yeah, you inspired me to record something....I love documenting my work. I also love concepts behind the sounds.
They become a musical diary.


Thank you Wade. That's really nice!
It's hard work to want to sound like someone else. What I choose to do for myself is real easy and I get a genuine kick out of it.
