Driving, narrative poem-song. Clever in its complexity yet straightforwardness. Skillfully arranged. Now I feel like I'm in the "Discipline" period of Crimson. Different and wonderful!! Excellent work!

Love that meaty rick bass, Wow!! Nice mixing job with well-panned instrumentation. Sax solo is great, as are the others. Reminds me of King Crimson's "Sex, Sleep, Eat, Drink, Dream" period. Don't know why -just does. Awesome part changes in this tune. Great production. Yeah!!!

The music is flat out fantastic, a tiny hint of King Crimson but so very not, I could listen to this all day. And the poem and the delivery, well that's icing on the cake. Impressive on every level, stunning work Al and Doug!

Had to look up this African-American folklore reference influence - from a different play book I'd say Al but not musically. Very cool and original for me. I really enjoyed it when you turned up the burner at the 4:23 mark - smookin'.

First of all, it's such a good basic melody you are starting with. It's the musical base tune for this track.

A very good building up at the intro. Synths, a guitar and bass.

0:52: The poem starts. I wonder how you got it fit into this track. Wasn't it difficult to get everything at the same speed?

Music and the poem teller make a perfect match, anyway, but I think you could listen to music or poem separately as well.

This reminds me of your "Detective Chronicle", where you used telling (and laughing) voices too.

Very good, Al! And I hear that positive energy again too!

Threw me back into a 70's (fly like an eagle ish) haze! smile :) smile :)
Love that! And the change is beautiful with that flap bass..
And of course, it wouldn't be a mention of Al's song without reminding (myself) of those wonderful horns... Makes me wanna pick up my old sax and play..
Better yet.. I'll just listen to you Al...
