That sax...amazing...and those keys!! Got my headphones on to pick up all the subtle extras...fantastic mix and production. Yep...this is how it should be done!

Yeah, lots of energy thrown into the world, in a mixture of Funk, Rock and Pop (I hear Disco influences too).

It reminds me very much to the 80's, when those three components were there in popular music. I think the sound of the synth you use is also typical of that time.

It makes me wanting to dance. I especial like the way you both go completely crazy from 3:40 on with attractive inter-action with marvelous solo's.

Yeah, another great one together with JF Burney!!!
Let's dance!!!!!

And here we go with the "new" Funky-Rock track......!!! smile :)

WOW, listening to the "8 Track Slacker" I thought this one cannot be topped.... wrong, it can!!! The proof is "Quantizing E", man, my ears were lost in a hot shower of sounds-music-rythm-key changes-lead parts-breaks......

Impossible to mention all of the fine details you and and JR put on this trak in this comment, wish only to remark additonally that this production is so great (mix&mastering), a fantastic work, and I have to think back what Kathy Reynolds wrote me in her last message: " Great if one can wear both production- and composer-hat...." Al surely does it with perfection!!!WOW!! smile :)

APPLAUSE to both collabos!!!!

This is just bursting with energy! You guys sound like a great band! The bass just kicks "A" and really stands out from the start while driving this funky groove. Love the key changes and breaks too. Jr's guitar solos are killer and the Hammond just sounds excellent when it drops in. Your sax solo adds the final tasty icing on the cake! I think the vocal touches add so much. There is so much going in this it is hard to cram everything I like in one comment but it is simply superb music from a couple of fine musicians!!!

Now this is one funky track! Is that your vocals Al on the intro? JR's funked up bass is sweet. Dig the great rhythmic elements. And here comes the Professor's long absent great sax - man this is a smoker! Wow there are a lot of great things going on here, bass, sax, guitars, vocals, horns. The B3 is great. I think this one of your best funk tracks Al - masterful! It's a powerhouse musically. No QE here.

This one immediately reminds me to another one of yours, so I first tried "Strega", one of my absolute favorites. Very nice to hear it back, but it's not the one.

Then I tried "Thunder, Harmony, Divine" (another absolute favorite), no, not the one.

Looking further in between your song titles I suddenly saw "The Wacky Time Tunnel", written in 10/8. Yes, that's the one!!!! I'm glad I found it otherwise I couldn't sleep anymore.

A lot of drama here. Darkness in the music.
It's restless as well, driven by fear, by adrenaline.
Something is going to happen.
A nice change at 2:17, with that synth lead coming in.
And those drums are marvelous.
Film music for an action film, a thriller.

Good to put it in front so that everybody can listen.
One question; Why did you choose this one for the April Fool station?

Enjoyed it! 10/8 is an interesting time signature.

I was just admiring the 10/4 time sig and came here to find I'd been mistaken wink ;) I'm glad you highlighted this track on the CC April station - it's a cool dramatic track with so much character. The big build in the middle has so much hypnotic tension in the percussion, it makes for a huge release when we go back to the main theme at the end.
