Description
Long Day (w/Awigze)

Music– Chris Flynn
All rights reserved @ all Copyrights @ Flynn Music 2010.


So, a little less than 5 years ago, I came across this website “Macjams” whilst searching for “loops”. I quickly realized that this site was something different – a community of sorts, with real relationships. So I posted a couple of songs that were just bass, keys and loops. It was then that I met a musician here that really reached out and introduced me into the world of online collaboration; Andy Wigze. “Another Long Day” was posted a few months before sans Sax – but in June of 2010 I asked Andy to contribute (or he asked me ☺) - Andy added a soulful, expressive Sax track that completely transformed the song. I am in the process of remixing (putting a new shine) some of my old tracks and I wanted to put this out there again, for one, to have as a posting option, and two to show off Andy’s classic musicianship.

This song features my ’62RI Fender Daphne Blue Jazz Bass – I am playing fingered notes with tapped harmonics on top, which may sound like piano or keys in your phones. I am also playing my Korg X3, which has long been stolen. Additionally there are some loops here, which I still like after all these years.

I am sincerely thankful for all of the support throughout the years and for all of the wonderful friendships that I’ve made here.

Thanks, my friend. This bass is one that I rarely use for recording because it has an active preamp, but the more I listened, it really sounds nice. Thanks for commenting now, and the first time it was released.

Andy is Fab
Sorry... moved on to new stuff. Yer solo here is well conceived, and fits the production and lyrical content of the material like a glove. Whether anyone else calls you Mr. Fab or not... You are Mr. Fab indeed! The proof is in the groove.
No one at MacJams has been as free with their time and talents Sir. The community is so much richer for your work, and brighter, more musical, as this outing points out. Bravo!
That cat on bass aint to too bad either ;)

Great post
love the bass technique and tone. I've had the pleasure of working with Andy on quite a few occasions and he always brings his best game. You and he have a real good thing going here. Nice touch with the keys at the end.

It does shine
The production is beautiful. Andy always sounds great, no matter who does the mix work --- sitting on the 2nd-story fire escape blowing moods over wet night-time streets. Your bass just permeates the track, but doesn't overwhelm. Fine work. Obviously, your playing cuts a lot of wood (!) -- it's not just the production. And the backing is total pro. Thanks for reviving this gem. Your mixing work is light-years beyond me. Tip o' the hat, sir.

Thanks for the great comments regarding the mix - What I have found is that those early mixes, while not bad, lacked character and definition. But, the fact that they were mixed without a mastering program meant that I really got the preliminary mix in a good place. So, because of this, the mastering was easy through Ozone 5. Thanks again!

That means a lot, especially since this is a tad long. I kind of wish I had shortened it a bit.

You wrote this in 2010? Man, where does the time go? And, I am pretty sure I begged you if I could record on this one. I really loved working on it... it has that kind of foundation that you just squeeze the horn a little and something pretty cool comes out... all kudos to you, of course. You're right about relationships and this funny, weird internet site. It was great meeting you at the jam last summer. I always thought that we should revisit this tune and expound some on the licks that you were doing on the ending. Love to all.

More of MacJams Liquid Love. Nice to listen to on this cold winter evening. I think that warmth from the Texas sax man, makes the cold more tolerable tonight.

love the tapped harmonics, blends in nicely with the arrangement and your fine playing on the bass Chris.
Always a treat to hear Andy play his sax and this is a wonderful collaboration.
Very much enjoyed.

Yes, it is fun going back and remixing these older songs...it's a very contrasting view of how I approached the song then to now. Thanks!

Posted just before I became a member, so I am happy you wanted to celebrate your MJ anniversary by reposting, Chris. Great synergy between you and Andy. Smooth and creamy! Digging the keys at the end, too. Love the warmth and balance in the mix. Thanks, guys. Keep MJ'ing. Regards, Peter.

Real drummer
Me too. Unfortunately, they're in limited supply on MJ. My Daphne is modded, with Nordstrand PU's, Audere Pre, Bad Ass bridge...it plays like a dream, although I'm more in the passive sound these days. Thanks for the nice words!

Nice ambient sound
Awesome bed of music to lay a cool sax upon. Interesting tail to the sax, adding a nice touch to the sound. I like the break at the end into the Marcus Miller style groove. You guys sound spot on, really cool tune.

Marcus Miller
If I could have done anything different on this song it would have been to cut some of the middle section out and added more of the ending groove with Andy wailing away.

what a fabulous mix ... smooth and funky. Some fine bass playing Chris and I am digging the tapped harmonics. And sounds great ... I like the verb and delay you've put on the sax ... makes this very dreamy. Fantastic!

Love the bass sound
Such a cool post Chris. Sounds really nice in my phones. I have been revisiting some of my older songs and replacing the looped drums with Drummer tracks - it might be an interesting experiment for you to try with this, and a good excuse to mess about with Drummer, which has been a real eye-opener for me.
Lovely playing from Andy here too.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Just about perfect...
Oh, heck. It IS perfect: great sax solo that is soulful and beautiful; great bass following along at just the perfect pace and sufficient fills in the general harmony without being over-much. My only (very small)suggestion: even a little more reverb to the sax track. ... This is a beautiful song and you guys have done a wonderful job bringing it to life. Wonderful listen, gentlemen.

Kicbal said 1018 days ago (March 4th, 2015)
Excellent
One of the best things I heard from Andy on sax. Reminds me of the sax playing that Sade had on her stuff (similar tone). The music bed behind it keeps things moving along nicely and the fluid bass in the background is subtle yet very interesting when you focus in on it. Cool collab.

A balm for the end of a long day
The kind of song I can just lie back into. Smooth sax with just the right sultry verb and a bass that shines with its own class as like a low pitched lead instrument. Keys sound great too - I would have loved to hear the piece carry on after their solo maybe with a modulation and recap. Sorry to hear the Korg was stolen so I guess my imaginary version isn't in the cards.

A great tune Chris and Andy, well played with spot on production. I appreciate the download too!
