Here is a little piece I started a few years ago and never completed. It is for Tenor Sax lead. It includes:

RealTracks-Drums, Piano and Bass
GPO3 Strings
and me on Tenor Sax

The piece reminds me of a Film Noir sound track or at least a 1950's gumshoe movie. (You know "It was a dark and rainy night...then she walked in" type of movie.)

I hope you enjoy it at least half as much as I enjoyed recording it.

p.s. I would make the url link fancy if I could figure it out in this forums setup but clicking on the "Create a link to a webpage" doesn't seem to do what I expect it to do.

Anyways...Enjoy! cool

"Nothin' a little bourbon and soda wouldn't fix"---That's a line from Woody Allen's Bogart parody PLAY IT AGAIN SAM. This tune put me in the Bogie mood. Really well done!! Great melody, and the sax playing was superb to my ears. Nice one!! Take care. Greg

Rich, very nicely done.

Your description as a film score fits exactly as I imagined too.

Enjoyed the listen.

Hi Rich, my kind of tune man!Very nicely done. It also remind me of some PBS British sleuth shows.

You put a mighty fine ensemble together for your sax to play over. Enjoyed this from start to finish.

Thanks all for the nice comments. It was fun to do and I just wish that kind of inspiration happened more than less of the time.
