This is excellent, reads through a couple of reviews and can see where this came from. I was gonna say that this very much reminds me of the Beck/Hammer compositions from the Wired and Blow by Blow albums. I have not had as much fun listening to a bit of jazz in ages cracking piece well done

The only thing I don't agree is with the 70's paradigm. Music is timeless... Specially compositions like this one, with a lot of bebop feel in it... If I would have to set an era or time frame I would place this great performance in the 2012, the renaissance of good music, as it is arriving!!!!!
Thank you Donna for sharing your enormous versatility !!!!!!

OHH this groove!!!!!! OHHHH the guitar playing!!!!. You are certainly a very versatile musician indeed. This song demonstrates your considerable guitar chops INDEED!

I just love this groove.. and your tone puncutates everything just perfect. The one thing i notice most about your playing.. is the space you leave intbetween notes and phrases.. it really makes the notes you do play come across with more depth and power.. I did enjoy the tones you used on this.. from raw blusy strat like tones.. to smoother EJ type tones...Great stuff indeed Donna

Man this is sure a change of pace from Sex and Love and Rock and Roll that I heard yesterday. This is a beautifully "chill" piece of jazz funk. Lovely progressions and sweet sweet melody. Loved your playing on this one. Sweet work indeed.

Cheers

this was a first attempt to capture the 70's feel of beck and fusion when i wrote this. i wrote all the drums and bass and keys for the song. the drummer had the most problems because it was hard for him to hear the crazy in and out of timing. but it worked and it turned out lovely. it is dedicated to my mother who was from that time. her name was Faith.
much luv your way,
donna
