Description
Another composition written by my good friend Jerry_Quinn. The day we recorded the basic tracks Jerry first needed to take a ride to a local music store for reeds. As luck would have it they had inexpensive Lanikai soprano ukuleles. They were reasonably playable and sounded decent. So I bought one. We recorded Jerry's vocals and sax to a drum loop and a scratch guitar track. Later that evening when I got home I started working out the ukulele accompaniment. So before you bash the ukulele player keep in mind, it was his first day.

Impressive.
Jerry's vox is distinctive. Jazz is eternal. :)

Very Kind of You
I have a few criticisms of my own. But I think we can be our own worst critics. Which of course is the beauty of macjams. Post your work and let impartial ears be the judge. Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment.

I just had to listen
once again. Scat is out of this world. I'd like to do this. And some Satchmo, to boot. :)

All Jerry
The scat is all Jerry and so much a part of his music and personality. I know he'll be thrilled by your Satchmo comparison. Thank you.

Loved it....
I loved the Manhattan Transfer since I was kid (theirs was very first vinyl LP I bought) and this delightful song sounds very much like something from their catalog and compares very favorably indeed. Top notch in all ways and rather amazing really! Thanks to you both. Michael

Thank You
You are always very supportive of our work. It amazes me how listeners will hear things in a piece of music I was completely unaware of. I've heard the Manhattan Transfer several times but didn't make the connection until you brought it up. Thanks again!

Nice scat
Jerry's vocals are so awesome. You have such a great sound, and the sax is smokin'. The ukulele sounds good to me especially considering it was your first day. 3 Thumbs up.

I am very fortunate to have such a talented vocalist to collaborate with. The fact he brings the sax to the table is a tremendous bonus. Oh....and he is the composer! Thanks so much for listening and taking the time to comment.

what a cool relaxed tune! the scatting, the lead guitar tone and the uke are just perfect. There's a melodic version Tom Waits in your voice, a lovely listen

Not often you hear a saxophone and a ukelele in the same song. Th at combined with a very distinctive vocal makes for a great song. Straight to download. Cheers mark

Jerry brought a great song to the session. Much of my contribution was luck (particularly the ukulele). I'm glad you liked it and thanks for commenting.

Smooth and swingin' you chilled Daddy-o
So comfortable to my ears that it plays like an old standard. Bring up the uke, don't be shy! Or bring down the drums a touch to put the focus where it belongs, on the great plucking strings and that great lilting swing on the vocal, too. Extra bonus points for the harmonies and that courageous scat section, A.L.!

Although if I bring up the ukulele you'll be able to hear just how poor my timing is. Jerry will be thrilled to read your kind comments about his vocal performance and the cool tune that he wrote. Thanks again!

Re-listening with new ears
One more comment.. I just re-listened, forgetting I heard this before! (That's why I wrote that you should never "again" put-down your uk playing, LOL!) Here's what I wrote, then deleted, and re-posted as a nested reply:

"Zebob ziddle and adeedly-doit is this ever a refreshing sip o' cool. What an excellent vocal outing for lead, harmony and scat. Jerry's sax is of course right-on here as elsewhere, and never-ever make excuses for your uke playing again, Andge-man!!!"

Jerry will be thrilled you liked the scat. The uku is full of timing errors so I wouldn't call it perfect..

great vocal
Mr. Entertainer! This kind of stuff goes over big time, because it has mass appeal.
Like that uke background and warm sax, but most of all I like the character your voice brings to the song.

is all the song's composer. Mr. Jerry Quinn, who is also the sax guy. I'm just the uku (bass and guitar guy). Hey man, thanks for taking the time to go back and listen to some of our earlier stuff.

All that jazz.
Good voice. Talk-sing style. Liking it. Ukuleles are making a comeback ... thanks to MacJams. Check out Dadai's uke tunes. Love the chorus. Sax is fine. Neat. Fun. I can hear this being played at a park on the 5th of July.

Playful vocals
Classic vocals. Such a fun track. thanks for taking the time to put this together. But those vocals make the track, you did a good job backing and not distracting. A throwback. Way cool.
