Kinda jiggy. Has a late eighties night club feel. Nice to hear a Hammond in use.

The Day the Earth Stood Still -- filmed across the Potomac from where I was living -- was one of my favorite films, with music by Bernard Herrmann who used a theremin in the soundtrack.

Right! Keep on sayin' it Al! Love the B3 and all of the other instrumentation is livin' large, but that bass hook with those slide tricks just hits it out o' the park! Had me coming back for mo! There's just so much going on, it's hard to catch it all without multiple plays. What did we say about 2014 getting hot? Oh yeah...Ascenzion is on a roll baby!

Oh yeah! First expression of mine when the bass kick in after the very cool B3 intro. First class basswork and uber first class saxwork my friend. Is it you singing?
Perfectly placed breaks - the synth-piece along with the bass is outstanding and then the sax enters again. So masterfully executed with high feel and heart in play.

A top-class product from a top class musicion!
