Hi Mark, happy to take a stab at the Hammond part if you can get a basic arrangement put together to work from, and drums and bass sorted. I can provide either a real Hammond tonewheel (A-102) organ if you want to go for the vintage Leslie 122 warm drive sound, like in the video, or if you want to go for harder Jon Lord style I can do that as well with my Nord C1. What key do you want to work in?

- Joe

Nice version, I like those smooth-jazz versions. :) If you want me on-board I can contribute in the bass-part.

Ok guys, Thanks everyone for offering. The Keys (Hammond), drums are filled and complete.
The Bass part is being recorded as we speak.
The sax part i will do myself.
Regret to say, its not possible to make this track a public jam for everyone to join in.
