Description
This is a very significant song for me. Started over a year and a half ago I had some definite ideas at the time of where I wanted it to go. It originally had the title of, 'Why Cant You Love Me?' and 'Exercise for Piano and Drums'. Then I added alto sax. It was primarily a showcase for Scott's drums. Something that he has done for me on a couple of songs that gave me some wings to play through his vision. I wanted to do the same. I sent it his way and in a day or two this elegant work and great drumming came back to me. I was blown away. I used it here and there as backdrops for other ideas but the song in this form is the culmination of how I envisioned the song to emerge. When TvRicky hit Macjams he grabbed my attention and I followed his offerings with interest. We began a conversation on one of his songs in the comments and thru emails and a phone conversation, we brought it into the form in which you hear now. It is a little long and I know that it is difficult to spend a lot of time on songs when there are so many great tunes to catch up with. At anyrate, TvRicky, Scofugate and I proudly present, We All That.

Scofugate- Drums
TvRicky- percussion and Bass
Andy- Alto and Tenor sax, keyboard

We all that
Well, well, this is entertaining. Three diverse talents integrated into a fine, expressive piece of music. Fascinating development - really it needs to be this long to allow all the elements their space and to get the light and shade into the arrangement that you have. Could easily be an "on stage" performance. Impressive work from all of you!

thanks, TvRicky and I were just talking about you..... you get a cup of firsties coffee. I agree with your assessment regarding diverse. That aint no lie. Man, those drums and Ricky's hands on approach to this made this tune.

Yes,
you three are all that. It sounds as if you were all on the same stage. You know I like jazz but this is somewhat more artsy. A modern dance troupe would love this. Thanks, guys.

We All That
Expressive, fine musicianship - a meditation on the absurdity of existentialism - whisking through time and space with infinite variation... love the way all the instruments are featured in the manner of a dialogue. drums are ill, especially!

awigze said 1795 days ago (January 11th, 2013)
an ill drum indeed
really appreciate your viewpoint on this.... and the absurdity of existentialism is well received. The percussion makes it that way... in its raw bare bones mix, it was just an exercise.... with Scott and Ricky is becomes a great work.

Thanks - so happy you got to hear this. I began this with an improv on the piano and added in that low drone synth note.... the rest was built on that and influenced by the collaborators.

The monster drum track drives the goings and comings. I can't sing anything here but the loopy bass line. The piano outing is generous by your standards thanks for stretching out. Many thanks for this post and the efforts of the crew!

Thank you Andy and TvRicky!
Its been a while since I dropped a click on this one. I put myself at the cellar door sessions with a pinch of Ornette Coleman. Andy laid the foundation and a great "Free Jazz" job he did. I love space. thank you for the kind words!!

Scott!
WCOTT! Sometimes I just mute out all the other tracks and just listen - there is so much soul - not even an adequate word for you... maybe it's a love of craft - or friendship. Heartfelt thanks for this and all we ahve done together in the past. More in the future?

I am fascinated and in awe of Andy and Scott..there Musicianship is truly feel, felt, and found by me and obviously by our wonderful community of MacJammers..Thank you Andy for this wonderful and deeply appreciated opportunity to make music with such talented individuals. Scotts Drums are to die for...Yeah!

My friend. I am so happy you joined me on this song. I did not know what to expect when I began this and I had a feel for the spaces that I left - when I heard your input, I was convinced we were meant to do this.
Thanks forever. What's next?

We All That!
I think this is absolutely amazing... this is what it should be ... a creative process ... one of the most original pieces I've heard ... in the midst of the chaos there is a feeling of peace. All parts are equally important in this tune and the individual instruments each shine through with distinctive personality ... so what I'm trying to say is "this is FK'n great!

Free jazz is not dead
and it doesn't even smell funny! I really dig this track. It's very hard to pinpoint what keeps it together, but it's a great group effort no matter how you slice it. (Eh, that Uda/Gatam at the end doesn't really belong there.)

awigze said 1786 days ago (January 19th, 2013)
and so it goes
there were times when I was not in control of this track.... at all. appreciate the listen and the comment. They style of mixing everyone was pretty much freeform. I never asked Ricky if he intended that last two percussive beats, and I thought about muting and ending the song - but then - freedom set in again.

Andy is The Man..
I really didn't know Andy and his music real well and then he made a suggestion on one of my pieces..I think Rok41 knows him well. The work that Andy did in the composition of this piece would blow your mind if you had heard what we started with. When i read what Chris said about this marvelous work I went back and truly studied Andy's feel and man..all I can say is this man is one of the best and most talented musicians and composers here a MJ..My hats off to you Andy and I look forward to the next one...Thank you so very much..

Whole lotta cool talent here...
I am particularly drawn to the very contemporary-sounding piano lines that poke through everything. There's jazz and some blues and that wonderful percussion that pops through in the background is just wonderful. I like the free-flow of every element, there being no rush to get to anything in particular. I do wish the sax were a bit louder in the mix (and that there was a little more of it, period). What a great collaboration. Congratulations to all of you.

I am glad you commented on your observations. TvRicky was saying the same thing about more sax. I thought the volume was ok. but will revisit this from your suggestion and see if there was somehting I could do better.
