piltdown part 7

March 1, 2008 7:42 AM

jazz tune. also, "jazz" tune.

This is a piece from a group I was a part of for awhile called The Piltdown Ensemble (I joined after they started and I still think it's one of the best names ever). I'm playing alto sax on this one.

Also, this used to have a real title, but damn if I remember it. It's the seventh track on the disc I have of our stuff.

Recorded live with two mics on a summer evening in Lawrence, Kansas.

Nice. I love that kind of rolling feel the bass and drums are laying down, and how the composition takes its sweet time. And even though I know I'm engaging in unfair stereotyping based solely on geographical location, this is not the kind of music that springs immediately to mind when I think of Lawrence Kansas. Cool!

Most of KS blows. Lawrence is a great place to live, though, because of things like this. Oh, and some guy who shot his wife lived there for a large part of his later life. Burroughs something or other. Writer or something.

Things like this, you say? (I think ol' Bill might've shot down that webpage, mistaking it for an apple, no doubt)

Yea, baby, both hands snappin'. This reminds me of some art films that a lunatic teacher showed us during (elementary) summer school once. I loved every minute. This is great stuff, man.
