Happy New Year to all! I've been away, so I haven't had the chance to listen to all the great stuff Forum members are contributing. My New Year's resolution: Try to catch up.

Here is a collaboration between myself and Claus Maurice, a top German jazz guitarist and the composer of

.....................FUNK IN THE TRUNK

Claus Maurice: composer, guitar
Aleck Rand: arranger, keyboards, bass
RealDrums: funk style

Hi Dean,

Happy New Year! You start it with a great song.
Awesome horns and organ.

GREAT! So well put together in all areas. Each instrument is clear and precise; and the the lead guitar fits the mix just perfect; thanks for sharing!

Dean,
That is a great mix. You always showcase
all of the tracks very well -- everything seems to
have it's place and nothing steps on another. It's
easy to forget how important all of that is when
listening and commenting on tunes.

Then comes the great playing that is featured in the
production. A cool collab that really works well,
very well. A fine way to start 2015, indeed.

Amazing! The overall sound draws me in instantly, and the arrangement, instrumental performances, and sound quality are stunning. Completely professional except for the drummer who didn't get this gig (well, someone did, but it was in Vancouver or something smile ). But the RealDrums work perfectly and with everything else going on, I would never even think about that if I didn't know the drums are from BIAB.

Thanks,
Bruce

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Some great musicians at work here Dean. The music, and surely the guitar reminds me of the 70's Dutch band Focus, with Jan Akkerman and the organ by Thijs Van Leer.
Loved it !

Dean and Claus,

WOW what a start to the new year!
What can I say about your contribution to this forum, Dean, absolute astounding as always.
It must take a lot of work, from BIAB to end up with a piece like that and it is always worth it.

Great solos

thoroughly enjoyable

Dean and Claus, This showcases a great amount of skill. Great organ solo! The only change I would have made in the mix would be louder drums. I really enjoyed the horns. This whole production was very well done. Tom
