Silk and Shade (tenor sax improv)



 Genre: Smooth Jazz

Get Flash to see this player.

I rediscovered this today as I was searching my music files for something else. I recorded the sax and guitar about 2 and 1/2 years ago. Tonight I added some bass and organ. A saxophone improv for those in a mellow mood...

For those with an iPad on which the player won't work, here is the link to the Youtube post of this tune:

This is the way I like it. Melodic, tasteful but with a lot of feeling behind it. Classic tenor sax tone! Like the way you kept the background simple and let your sax shine. Good job as always!

A Man and his Sax
Cool vibe!

It's funny how something unfinished can sit around for years .. and then one night the moment's right and the extra touches get added to fill it out.

It's not funny how many fragments and unfinished works litter our hard drives : )

I'm working on a piece to send your way .. which hopefully will seduce you into adding some collaborative sax (or singing or whatever). Stay tuned : )

A man, a sax, and forgotten files...
Thanks, Warren, for the collab invite. I do look forward to it. Yeah, it is kind of amazing. More than once I've come across something I had started and forgotten about, only to then think, "Hey, this has the makings of a decent song with just a little more of this or that!"

searching out that note...
Indeed. Kind what improv is all about. A musical journey to find this note and that as to complete a trail of notes - hopefully pleasant sounding. Thanks, Tim.
