I'm not ready to unload any of my instrumental piano music on here yet, so here's another band song—the only song I've ever written for a band. The original version only exists on poorly recorded minidisc recordings of live shows, and I can't stand listening to that version any more because after I brought it to the band it quickly dawned on me that I had just written The Beatles' "Glass Onion" all over again. Oops. So this here's a 70s groove version of the song I just started working on today. My plan is to get a new band together and rerecord it like this.

This is fantastic. It would be even more awesome if, say during the last third of the song, there was a "loud bit" with lots of drumming and perhaps a guitar and the singer singing his face off. Either way I could listen to this all day.

Yea, I can feel the groove here. Not bad for a white boy-kidding. Slap a semi-thick bass track on it and I'm all over it.

Ken Stringfellow + The Zombies and a fierce groove. Good man.

Maybe a little Robert Cray too.

I bet I know why you're saying Robert Cray. The last line of the chorus sort of follows the same melody as the chorus to his song "Smoking Gun," which you've just made me realize. Gah.

Thanks for the comments. I'm still trying to line up a recording session with some other musicians later this month.
