I've gotten lots of positive feedback about the horns in Funkenstein and requests for more. I'm grateful and most happy to oblige.

This one features wicked solos from RT artists Eric Marienthal on tenor and Ron King on trumpet.

Aleck Rand arranged the horns, and plays bass, guitar, and Latin percussion.

RT Artists

Eric Marienthal: tenor sax
Ron King: trumpet
Jeff Lorber: keyboard
Terry Clark: drums

Floyd and Pat,

Yeah, about "my band." Where would we be if Peter Gannon hadn't come along so that we can all have completely convincing bands. One definition of genius that I've heard is this: someone who has two great ideas to contribute. Let's see: (1) BIAB, (2) RealBand, (3) RealTracks. I dunno, that looks like more than two to me.

I know where I would be: Even if I had the 1000 bucks to spend on ProTools or something similar and even if I was foolhardy enough to spend it, the final result would be me staring, glazed-eyed, at a Rube Goldberg-like interface and thinking, what the hell, my instruments can stay locked in their cases for another thirty years.

Hi Dean,

your song is a wonderful experience.
You did a great job with the horns, bass, guitar, and percussion.
Really liked it.
You should have mentioned Red Clay (the original).

Sounds great, you did a great job with the horn backgrounds. Eric sounds great as do all the solos, yours too.

This is Freddie Hubbard's Red Clay, right?

Thanks for posting.

Hi Guenter and Frank,

Originally, I had made a reference to certain "astute members" who would recognize Red Clay. Then, for whatever reason, I deleted this from the post and put in a statement of gratitude to Freddie Hubbard on the Soundcloud page that hosts it. Well, you two guys are the only Forum members to indicate recognition - and Guenter makes a good point. True, it's a bit feeble but if you look at the URL https://soundcloud.com/aleckrand/red-clay there it is.

When I first joined the Forum at the beginning of 2013, I used to post "name that tune" type performances to see how familiar Forum members were with Jazz. Maybe the title "adjustment" is a leftover from those days.

Thank you for your very kind remarks. Frank I'll address the horn arrangements question next time.

Dean

Shades of Super Sax! Okay, that's all the jazz recognition I've got today. Finest kind, Dean. There are multiple layers of genius at work here.

On the flip side, this is one of those performances, both virtual and real, that is inspiring and depressing at the same time. It's bad enough that I'll never play like that; now you've got me wondering whether I will ever be able to manage the software as well as you and many others. You give the rest of us a very high mark to aim for.

Okay, enough sniveling. I've got to get back to work getting my studio together.

R.

Well Aleck, what can I say? Great arrangement! I have a question though, you said that the horns were midi, can you reveal what VST, sound module or sampler you use for these? they sound very convincing.
Thanks for sharing.

Hey Danny,

I hope "Frank" is me - Aleck or Dean. Otherwise, I admit Frank is a pretty decent player.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
