when your lover has gone

Ok I didn't write this. It is my cover of a jazz standard written by einar a. swan... the version I was sorta aping was a version recorded by Billie Holiday. I tried to give it an En Vogue "Giving Him Something He Can Feel" vibe, but er, that didn't exactly happen. I recorded this 12? years ago, as a joke since I had no experience singing any jazz tune whatsoever, and this is what came out. Note the thoroughly consistent out-of-tune Zeta-bass part (my bass guy could not play that thing properly since he never had any real fretless training), and conversely, his killer bass solo, in which he duplicates the original guitar? Horn? solo from the Holiday track. I think that was a PRS, I forget. recorded to the original ADAT, I think, synced to a 25mhz At&t P1 laptop w/4mb of ram and the original non-audio Logic midi sequencer... I also played the clarinet and sax parts, brushed snare & cymbals, my buddy Errol tossed out the acoustic guitar licks. used by austin's Realm Dance Project in 2003 for one of their goofy nyc Fringe Festival pieces. More of what I do currently here at: ! the edison carter project !

Wow, this is a sweet piece. I could live without the constant high-hat, but otherwise, even though it's kinda jokey, this is a great listen.
