Description
Jack(DavisAmerica) and I were working on a tune, Cloudgig (w/ DavisAmerica- Jack) by awigze wrote, sang and sax. Jack: producer and keyboard... and this was at the end of an idea that he had passed my way in the form of a nice keyboard arrangement.Today, it caught my eye because it was labeled, anideaandy2. We did not use this segment at all for the song. What got me thinking of creating a song in the first place was that I was working outside and it began to sprinkle a bit so I stopped what I was doing and put away my tools. I thought, why be afraid of the rain? As I was working on the tune I could hear this hissing sound in my headphones only to realize that it had really started to rain pretty good. I opened the window and shoved the mic over to it and caught a couple of minutes of rain.

Jack - Keyboard, vocals
Andy- Sax, vocals, Kalimba
rain- God's green earth

Cool and wet
I think I'll just leave my umbrella in the hall, why get it wet?. A little water never hurt anybody. This is nice and soothing. Makes me want to run out and stomp in a puddle.

Gentle, but with plenty happening to keep it interesting. Warm sax is good. I like the synth tones you use - just a hint of oriental to give it an extra dimension. Beautiful work!

Lush, cool harmonies, entrancing. Love the Kalimba and use of synths, and of course the sax and vocal lines that grow from nothing and swell before fading into the drops. Nice one guys. Very nice.

Swirling mist...
is so well described not just with the instruments, but even more so by the floating and interweaving vocals that dip and weave throughout this beautifully peaceful track. That little percussion bit chirping throughout is just perfect to set a consistent stage for this engaging trip into the rain forest. And the raindrops themselves are gentle and forgiving, sprinkled judiciously throughout the middle of the track. I don't feel the fear, though. ... Ah, this is so relaxing.

brings rainbows of psychedelic rain... gently falling notes dapple my brain with thoughts of sax. And I am not afraid of the rain. A very enjoyable interlude.
