I think I've heard these guys on New Orleans RadioNot sure if I've posted this before but here's an absolutely cracking, and more than a little demented, version of the old gospel classic, I'll Fly Away. We encore with this tune when I play with Urban Voodoo Machine- I find it both incredibly uplifting and deeply moving at the same time (as, I suppose, is appropriate for a funeral song)
It is nice to hear something a bit different, here's someone you may not of listened to before,Mammal Hands are a favourite down here too.. If you've not also discovered The Portico Quartet- may I recommend them too.. in a similar vein
Saw them live in Edinburgh and I left earlyMammal Hands are a favourite down here too.. If you've not also discovered The Portico Quartet- may I recommend them too.. in a similar vein
This reminds me of
To me, the oprano sax- particularly in Portico Quartet- sounds more influenced by fiddle music than the sax tradition. The phrasing is very Klezmer or Celtic at timesUm...
European tradition rather than USA.
Don't mind playing slowly and quietly.
Not yer usual jazz changes?
Very good. Do you think there are effects added to the Sax? To me it just sounds like a great tone straight off the bat, or out of the bell..This came up on YouTube for some reason,. It's not the sort of thing I would normally listen to but I do like this guy's sound/tone. I also like the way he works with the vocalist, this question is probably for @randulo what effects are added to his playing?
