Some of you may recognize this as a radical reharmonization of a tune by the greatest composer since Ellington/Strayhorn (my opinion, of course, but if you can suggest someone better be sure to let me know).

Aleck Rand: 6 and 12 string guitars, fretless bass

RT artists

Jeff Lorber: keyboards
Eric Marienthal: alto sax
Ron King: trumpet
Franklin "Third" Richardson: drums

Hi Dean,

As Dani said: the master and his guitars.

Happy New Year.

I think you did a great interpretation of a Wayne Shorter classic!

Rob,

You got it! The Forum is not especially jazz oriented so I never expected anyone to come 'round so fast identifying Shorter. And, many thanks for your kind remark.

Happy New Year!

Dean Clark (aka Aleck Rand)

Hi Dean...

We love this kind of music. I (Al) would call it NuJazz. Your touch on the strings is magnificent. I wish my Jazz playing was this smooth and delicate. And you give the fretless bass a damned good reason to be. You never fail to amaze me. you're a serious talent. I should be buying your cuts at the local music store...great innovation! Best to you

Al & Di

Dean -

Really enjoyed that. LOVED the bass! The sax was sweet!
Very nicely put together!

Happy New Year!

Hi Al and Di,

You know, part of me is a real hard-core hard-bopper and, being realistic, I can't expect many listeners or responses. That's OK when you have just a few folks who can hear what's going on and deliver a walloping compliment. I can't tell you what a thrill it is.

Stick around and keep stirring things up with your music. The Forum (to say nothing of me) needs you. Happy New Year and thank you.

Dean

Hey Floyd,

I always count on you for clues, directions, and if necessary a good lickin' when you hear me do something that you think won't fly. You've always got my attention.

Thanks - and Happy New Year

Dean

Hi Guenter and Dani,

You two dudes are masters of the walloping compliment and terrific musicians to boot. I'm a very lucky guy to have your kind of ears appreciating what I do. Very lucky indeed!

All the best to you in 2014!

Dean

Dean,

Al here...Di is napping, along with our new puppy, Lucy. It's always been my thought that superfluous comments don't really mean that much. it's the heartfelt, honest ones that do. So, I think it's good that all the comments you've received are, indeed, heartfelt.

As far as us stirring things up on the boards, we enjoy posting our songs and getting honest feedback. There is a ton of talent here and we strive to employ all the wise advice imparted to us. I mentioned to Floyd on another thread that I'll be 68 years old in March and I find myself learning just as much now as I did when I was young.

I've written about 650 songs myself and co-written about 125 songs. I am in the process of redoing many of those older songs with BIAB. I had very poor software in the past but BIAB has opened a whole new threshold for our music. I could post a new one every couple of days but we just don't want to hog the boards. There is so much other fabulous talent here to be heard...like that DooWop - jazz guitar player that hangs out here!

Best to you, my friend. Hoping 2014 brings you prosperity and good times.

Al and Di

Ray,

Thanks for the kind words.

I noticed you had some interesting things to say in another Forum about Bill Evans and song "structure." However you interpret that, I was going to make a comment that no one had mentioned the dynamic element, i.e., that Bill Evans may play 7 different chords for the first 7 notes of Sentimental Mood, but these chords are "going somewhere" that makes sense harmonically. He's thinking ahead about where the chords are going to "land" at a logical pivot point in tune.

I was going to mention this element of "motion" ... then I thought to myself ... "nah" and just left it at that.

Dean
