I love all your tunes Al, but never heard you do anything like this. Never know what to expect from you i guess. I like that! This tune is a gem..added it to my blues station "The Remedy" before it was even over. How the heck did you do this one? You play resonator guitar? Slide? The slap and pop bass makes an ol' Mississippi stomp tune groove current as do your synth accents.
What a hoot! Nice one man...Lovin' it!

Ok, I'm not waiting any longer. This is so cool! Very nice job on the slide! What are the details, guitar etc. This track makes me smile. You are lovingly nurturing this one along. I love the Ascenzion background funk/bass/horns/keys. You are way too cool Al! Very nice Professor!

Great lovecraftian carpenter flick! One of carpenters gems(I like movies).. and this is a damn perfect homage to the film Al. It has that slick mid 90's feel to it that kinda orbited the film(although not quite as "organic").
All I can say is... do YOU read Sutter Cane?
Excellent as always my man! smile :)

What can I add that has not been said... This is just a great example of excellence in my book! Arrangement, performance, recording and mastering are all first class.

Beautiful composition, very groovy. The bass is excellent and tolerates the whole speech. Evolution is slow and continuous, the shape is a loop, and everything is very hypnotic.

Very interesting to build a song on the japanese Taiko rhythm and sound. Jazz isn't the first thing you would think of when speaking about these rhythmic patterns. But you manage to blend the drums with a triumphant sax and an insisting piano and voila, you get a jazzy, driven, jumping piece of pure pleasure! Great stuff!
Hi Al, thought I'd drop by to see what was new. "Grooved ..." is just as the title. Keep up the good work!

Geez Al, you are so bad! This track just smokes. Awesome guitar work. The sax is big and bad - The Professor's in the house and showin' how it's done! Just a smookin' bad as*, world class track! Love the change up at 4:05. I could have sworn I L&C this track before but it was a pleasure re-listening to it (2x today).

Fantastic use of space, giving the instruments room to breathe and converse, helping to keep the mix crystal clear. Then you hit us with a WHAM! at just the right moments. Brilliant.

Great job on this piece. It is jazzy, funky and grooves effortlessly along. The different instruments are all convincing and the distorted bass solo and the organ do. is eminent!

This is a KILLER track! Fantastic sound, the taiko, the keys, and of course that sax - all blended to perfection. I am in awe.

Great work on this, Al. Some really nice tunes and a wonderful sax. The rhythm is a bit hectic but still the feeling is somewhere between rock and chill out. So the title fits perfectly: It is groovy and yet chilled.
The double bass sounds wonderful all the way and so do all the other instruments. You are a great musician, Al. To have all this going on and yet keeping it simple and groovy, that is a masterpiece in itself!
