Euro Slicer iii w/Bud


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Here is my addition to Bud's excellent Euro Slicer Sound bed. Grabbed this pretty early in the process of improvising over the sounds. Hope I was able to catch some spontaneity without hitting too many sour notes or clumsy rhythms. Henri Roger also did an excellent version. Are there any others that I missed?

Love it
Sent me off on a big city stroll, streets filled with faces and yellow taxis. Lovely playing, and great sound. Your music and the soundbed sound like they were made for each other - which has to be a good thing! Nicely done. Peace.

Woah
You have definitely put an interesting addition to this track. The playing here to me seems to "humanize" the song. Nice freestyle on the keys.

Thanks, I had perhaps gotten carried away by overusing the time fixing in some of my other songs. No fixes here :)

I am glad I stopped by. I had heard this awhile ago when Bud posted it. I think you tapped into the groove quite nicely. Stellar keyboard chops Bill. this is a top notch production. Kudos to both you and Bud.

paul f. page said 3140 days ago (October 20th, 2008)
Sounds like...
...you're live in a studio puttin' down cool tracks of sound and playing off of each other with ease and a sense of irection. This is pretty darn cool. I wonder if it's going to go anywhere else. .... OH, I love the dissonant chords and those lead lines that creep in and out of the soundbed. Very nice, indeed.
Peace.

Really nice take on Slicer Bill
I love the electric piano tone you're using - and the flowing line is a great counterpoint to the start stop feel of the bass. Excellent keys - reminds me a bit of Herbie Hancock Head Hunters era. Thanks for posting - I'll add it to the original page.

If there were
any major errors on this you masked them over with a smooth-a-tude in your digital dexterity. Fun and entertaining.

I think this could be a little more appreciated in the jazz genre as well.

Oh, I'd like a half pound of pastrami and some gouda cheese please. Sliced in the same groove as you playing......... bravo

Wish I
...could improvise like this, Bill. There's such a nice energy and flow to what you're doing here and I agree with the people who say they love the piano tone. Is it one you made yourself? You really meshed well with Bud's track. It sounds like you're in a room with all those musicians. Totally dug this.

Piano sound is a modification of the GarageBand electric piano. The overdrive is used so that there is more distortion when I hit the keys harder or play a chord and conversely when I want a cleaner sound I play softly. Most of my "practice" is improvising, so it is always a treat when I can play over a track like Bud's. Thanks for the comments.

Just stepped out
...of a yellow taxi in Manhattan; raining on a grey warm city afternoon as a cop writes a ticket to a double-parked limo on the corner. A woman in a long red leather coat breezes by, far too important and beautiful to notice someone like me. The rain is warm, and feels good on my face.

Two elderly Italian men argue about something as they walk slowly past, arguing the way old friends argue, and a subway thumps and clanks unseen from a metal grate below my feet. I can smell the scent of the subway wafting up from the darkness. Another attractive girl drifts past, chatting with a friend on a cellphone.

I sip my styrafoam cup filled with coffee, and feel the rain on my face. There are days I love the city, and this tune perfectly captures why.

p.s. I love the little trill right at the end!
