Funked Up Friday

Somewhat In The Style of Marco Parisi

Something a little different. I like just about all genres and styles of music. About a year ago I was playing around with some of the Modern Jazz RTs and styles. I came across this one and liked it. After a couple days of playing around with it, this is what I came up with.

I certainly don't claim this is of the same complexity as some of the funky Jazz Mr. Parisi plays, but it is, in my opinion, of a similar style. Perhaps Marco Parisi Extra-Light.

Anyway, hope some of you enjoy it. Yes, it's a slight bit busy in a few places. But when I removed the "offending" tracks, it sounded somewhat empty, so I left them.

I also like the little tag BIAB gave me at the ending!

Sweltering, Alan. Emphasis on the swell. I wasn't offended by any of the tracks. Very interesting to listen to the individual players in the ensemble. That electric piano is wild. It creates a visual of rhythm in mayhem. Nah, "mayhem' holds too much destruction, and there is way too much creativity here to use that word. Very enjoyable, but so short.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Ho, ho, ho - Santa Al is coming to town. And look what he's got in his sack: Hily Crappola, THAT WAS ONE HECK OF A SURPRISE !!!!!!

Alan, Mr Know-them-all, that is just awesome. It may not be everybody's cup o' tea, but it sure is my cup. Cup? Ha, mug. Bucket. Vat. Silo. Pool.

I am really thankful that you posted this one, Alan - it's so encouraging to have a look at those hidden RT pearls.

Just soooooo good !!!

Take care and please give Di a big hug,

Stefan

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

This is very cool but the "movement" of the lead keys across the stereo image was a little weird..id doesn't seem to follow the tonal layout of the Rhodes.

Hi Nigel ...

Thanks for the listen and very nice comments. It's a genre that doesn't get a lot of attention on the pages, but one I like a lot. Not everybody's cup of tea for sure.

Take care ...

Alan

Hey Marty ...

Glad ya liked it! Thanks for letting me know!

Take care, my friend ...

Hey! thanks so much for dropping in for a listen. Much appreciated. I'm delighted it all sounds good to you. Yeah, I had to put in a few traffic lights here and there to keep everybody in their appointed place.

Many thanks. Take care ...

Hi Ray ...

I'll take "cool" any day! As far as the movement of the keys, I apparently don't hear quite as much of it as you do. But when you're almost 75 freaking years old, your ears lie to you a lot! Or, on the other hand, they just don't tell ya much of anything!

Regardless, though, it's all in the way BIAB recorded in their studio. Any movement of that sort is out of my control. But, all in all, no real complaints about BIAB.

Glad ya liked it anyway!

Take care ...

Alan
