Very interesting aurally. As Scott C said there is beauty in the chaos. As I was listening, I was wondering how you were going to resolve the frenetic urgency of the piece; my question was answered with a perfect ending.

Nice one, it gives me the sensation to be in the centre town at the rush hour.
Very nice.

Sounds like Charlie Bird dropped in on someone else's session and overdubbed. I assume the cross tonality wasn't achieve within a single session in the standard BIAB program.

Thanks Greg, Sergio, Ember and Rayc for listening. The analogy of being in a downtown at a rush Hour works for me!

Wow - I actually really enjoyed this. It reminds me parts off Miles Davis' On The Corner. That being a personal favourite jazz album of mine, this is definitely a compliment. It's odd - despite the song being chaotic and hectic on the surface, the closer you listen the more patterns seem to emerge.

A really fascinating listen! Thanks for sharing smile

Yes, as others have said the more you listen the more, somewhat counter intuitively, it all ends up making a great statement.

We very much like it!!

Well done....

J&B

PS If I could compose a tune every time I don't sleep well we would have a HUGE catalog! smile
