Cool stuff Al. I thought I was back in the 70's! Stops, starts, vocoder, infectious bass lines. The shift to that heavy duty funk at 3:34 is a real stone groove and the time shift at the 4:12 mark is sublime. JR gets great tones on the guitars and the sax shines as always. How could we expect anything less from the A-Mass!
hello,

Had to listen to this one with 'Stakin' for a title. Jeez Al, the guitar is really good. You just ooze music. The arrangement and production are very cool. The maternity ward must of been rockin when you first graced this world. Nothing 'Stankin' here.

Great drum track, beat/drive. Exotic melody. Nice keyboards. Very cool guitar effects and shredding runs. Like the into/outro replication. Definitely soundtrack application.

Hey Al,

Have you ever recorded an even slightly less than stellar piece? I doubt it! This has energy to spare and a funky groove that needs all that energy. Full and robust sound that makes me appreciate my ears even more!

This has it all ... melody, groove, funk, energy, full but not cluttered instrumentation ... and that's just the tip of the talent iceberg floating in your site!

You have an impeccable skill for fullness without distracting clutter. Your mixing is always tasteful and so professional. Not only do you have an excess of talent ... you have the intelligence and that natural gift only a few have for using it to its maximum potential. Always a treat to be in your studio!

Alan

Intro reminds me of Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells. Very nice bass/vocal/electric piano/vocal synth work. Has the Ascenzion quality of instrumentation composition and arrangement. Just phenomenally majestic music. I'm not really qualified to critique your music Al but I always give it a shot - it's always phenomenal!

This track is really cool! Cool and really beautiful intro. Beautiful melody/piano. Really nice percussion and bass. Beautiful synth work. The acoustic guitar (synth?) is great. At 2:50ish just a great pulse drive. Awesome Al, and did I mention it was really beautiful?

Well, today I take my desk in Professor Massey's classroom. Today's lesson, classical music composition with soundtrack applications. The professor expounds to my bewilderment on orchestration, arrangement, jazz fusion and instrumentation virtuosity. I dejectedly go home after class, pick up my guitar and play a 1/4/5 pattern :-(

Just fantastic Al!
