I've been meaning to learn this one for ages. Fat's makes it sound so simple. It's in Eb. Second chord is a D7. Then there's a C7 and an F7. Sounds great. I know not why.
The melody doesn't go where it's expected either. Any way...I'm still at the stage of reading the melody and harmony. Chords in concert. Head for Bb. I had no idea I could read a Bb part for alto. Surprised myself.
I seem to be jumping about Genre wise. All that chat about Jr Walker elsewhere got me thinking. Tried it 20's style with the alto. Just sounded silly. Reworked the track and tried it with tenor and came a poor second. Changed key and tried it Marvin style with the Baritone. Not sure. I might rework it.
This is the first time I’ve heard you sing and play the saxophone and you are really good.
You’ve got a very unique signature style. Very smooth vocals and sax playing. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you !
