Kilimanjaro - 2017


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Kilimanjaro was a fun little song I wrote back in 2013 and enlisted the help of Macjam greats, Paddler and Sigmund to bring it to life. At the time, I used DOD Drum Tracks, which sounded ok-ish, but I never felt that they held up to the rest of the song. Mike DeRammelaere, is local drummer here in DFW and besides being a highly respected groove player, he's a hell of a nice guy. I asked him to throw some light in this thing and he happily obliged. I love the way it came out - Thanks Mike! This features some really amazing performances from Sig and Pads, reminds me of the good old days!

Lastly, I know I've been absent from MJ for awhile and as we all know, "life happens". I hope all is well with all of my friends here and hope to be more engaged in the near future. Peace! RoK

Kilimanjaro
The first says this is going to be impressive, and everything that follows confirms that. Everyone is playing up a storm. I like the way the tune is developed - lots of energy all the way through. Good mix, too. Downloaded for continual enjoyment! Great work, Chris.

Nodding and smiling :-)
Yep, Mike lights it up. Great to hear Sig and Paddler going for it again and your bass playing is a genuine highlight, Chris. Fine mix. Had me nodding in appreciation of the musicianship and smiling. Thanks, guys.

Dude!!!

This is killer. I'm not a slap guy. Most guys do it in such a derivative and cliche way. But your lines sound fresh and melodic. And that tone is awesome. Great band. You'll have to get them together and do a tour. Let me know when you book a date in Tampa!

Slap
Hi Andrew, great to hear from you - I don't slap much these days and I don't know if I would really classify this as traditional slap, I am using two hands on the fret board for hammer-ons to get that chordal effect. Another thing, this is a P Bass, probably the last thing I would normally play like that, but I really dug the tone. Thanks again!

Paddler is an amazing player, as is Sig and Mike - I would love to do a live show with these cats, but we are separated by about 6000 miles.

This is a SMOKER! Awesome band. Lead guitar is simply KILLER, and the various solos all work marvelously.

I'd pay to see you guys live!

Hello my friend - so I see this tune on the play list and I'm like "whoa!". Remix sounds great, and Mike's playing is smoking hot. I'm still blown away by Paddler's keys, and your bass playing just doesn't get any better than this. This is a MacJams classic and it's so cool to bring it back for a fresh listen - awesome!

What's up bro! Been awhile - This one was a lot of fun and the musicianship shown by you and Pads is off the chart. It was good getting real drums on this too, Mike did a nice job of playing to an established track. Thanks again, hopefully one of these days I'll get back to writing.
