Took the opposite approach to the others and decided to pick the tune up, rather than 'jazz' with it. Gentle shuffle in the verses, picked out the phrases in the bridges. Up-beat for outro. Suffered massively from a lack of time as I needed to dismantle the drums to leave for a rehearsal - it was the only actual take I did so it's a bit ragged in places, especially the fill into the outro which is as clumsy as it is crap.

It all sounds a bit out-of-place at the moment but I'm hoping when/if other instruments add it won't!

Enjoy.

Yeah, thats cool Martin! Like your apporach! When the bass is gonna follow you, the track will evolve in a very good way!

Thanks for the kind comments, chaps! It was a really tough one to do - one of Marc's toughest. I could've taken the easy way out and cracked out the brushes and been gentle - that was the logical approach. But I decided that it had been posted as a pop track, not a jazz one! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I totally get what you mean about the blunt approach. It seems that way with just keys and drums but I took a gamble with this in the hope that the musicians who [hopefully!] follow will also take the approach and run with it. :) I hope it works out and I don't look an idiot!

Just noticed the rim collision on the tom at 3:07! Dammit!

Really nice playing guys... I like the way it steps out of its clothes at 2;57 (I can't get Wade's analogy below out of my head!!)

I just wish the fill into it didn't sound like my snare fell over in a bowl of more snares!

For some reason, Wade's comment conjured up Can-Can girls in my mind. I think I need a doctor!

I sort of like the straight and unadorned nature of this. Like music for a stripper...with the band stripped down to basics as well.
