Love it! Crusaders, Spyro Gyra, Shakatak? A nice female vocal perhaps? Great production.

Thanks for the listen and nice comments. I've not yet decided what I want to do with it. I'm loving the Spyro Gyra comments! Even if I add a vocal or lead instrumental track, I'm still gonna keep this musical bed. There are frequent calls from film & TV folks for these kind of tracks. Appreciate the suggestions and nice words.

Alan

Alan,

This is cool. All it needs is some Barry White vocals.

By the way, how many songs a minute can you write???

Thanks David,

Just last night, SDi asked me if I thought I could do a Barry White-type vocal for this!!! Good minds thinking in unison! Actually, I got a vocal goody from FedEx a couple fo hours ago - A TC Helicon vocal processor - the Voice Live edition. Looking forward to playing around with it tomorrow. In fact, it specifically has a Barry White setting on it to help enrich your voice in that direction. We'll see! For $2560.00, it had better do something to make my voice sound a little more listenable!

After I lay around with it and figure our some of the options and effects, I'll record a song pr two and post them. We'll see how it goes.

Glad you liked this. Thanks for letting me know!

Alan


PS: To answer your last question ... I can do two a day with no problem. Since I don't do the "Big Sound" thing like you, Torrey and few others do, I don't need as much time. Right now, I have over a dozen songs ready to go! I;ve written all of thenm over the past two weeks.

Isaac Hayes is back and he brought Spyro Gyra with him!

This is a great 70's cop/spy movie track. Excellent work on this brilliant production.

This is a keeper.

You're forgiven Al wink
Well we sure can hear where your musical roots come from:
Starsky and Hutch, Baretta, Charlie's Angels, we could go on....

But you sure master the skill to make this sound really 70s authentic!

That is the vibe I heard!! Very nice. I'm going to have to play with those RTs. I'm guessing that's Jeff Lorber on the keys-love that EP!! Thanks for posting! Take care. Greg

Hi Al,

I love the sound of this composition. The style sits incredibly comfortably with you... very classy.

After listening to your and Di's outstanding music on here for some time now, I once again find myself marvelling at your diversity. Whatever genre you choose to work in, you do it with excellence. One of the things that I love about BIAB is that it makes 'genre hopping' really easy. So many times on this forum, you two show us how it's done.

Best wishes to you both,
Noel

Hi Again, Noel.

Thank you very much for the really wonderful comments. This is a genre that just come to me without a second thought. What I've always liked about RnB is it's ability to set a definite mood - probably more so than most other genres. And what makes that uncanny is the breadth of moods it can impart. Di and I are huge fans of the Do-[*****] of the 50s and early 60s and the Smooth RnB of the mid-sixties through the late-seventies.

We appreciate your comments so much! Again, thank you.

Alan & Di
