Composed and arranged by Aleck Rand with my user-created BIAB style DNFNK.

What occupies the space between one nano-second and the next? And what does that have in common with lovers who really aren't sure about each other, or, for that matter, where your dental floss goes? The answer:

Love it, really like the bass, the horns sound like they need a tad more verb to fit in with the rest of the mix, this is outstanding work. Thanks for sharing!

Great bass and guitar. I suppose it's both you.
Superb playing.

Dean, you are the Dr of Funk. That is some nasty slap bass. Guitar lead = killer chops. Nice fade out. Everything is great about this one. Tremendous work. Tom

Dean,

Nice frantic guitar solo, fits well.

I like the repeated lick that fades at the end. Nice touch.

'Funky and sophisticated' someone said on Soundcloud...Amen!

The bass is way cool and as always the guitar work blows my mind.

Thanks so much Olemon,

A supreme compliment from you and the SoundCloud commentator. To be sure, I love Funk/SmoothJazz, but I'm not too keen on those tunes that start out with a superfunky bass/rhythm line and then run on just one chord. What I wanted to do was add the slick changes that make it not so obvious how to solo. I hope I succeeded to some degree.

Dean

Hi Guenter,

I'm glad you liked it. Yes, that's me on bass but inside a style I created so that my thumb would not require the services of a hand surgeon. In order to build up the proper callous, you have to be playing that style constantly, but I rarely do. First I tried band-aids over the knuckle of the thumb but I could never get used to the feeling.

Thank you for the kind words my friend.

Dean

Mike, amigo -

Thanks, man. My personal ambulance just arrived with the hand surgeon. Shouldn't take too many stitches to close over the exposed tendon in my thumb. Yeh, piece o' cake. Later.

Hi Al and Di,

I hope all is well. Thank you for the kind words. Given the disclaimer right up front, I'm still working up the nerve to listen to your latest but I'll do it... gulp...

Hey Dan, and welcome to the Forum.

Thank you very much for the kind words. I plan on doing more of this kind of thing as I work my way through being a recovering jazz guitarist.

Alyn,

I never thought anyone would notice that last lick on the fadeout. Thank you for doing so. Glad you liked the tune.

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/.
