King Kong in the Night

Description
Some time ago, I was driving home one night from visiting some friends in Athens, Georgia. I passed a used car lot that had a huge blow-up gorilla in its front lot. About the size of a two-story building, the imposing ape-looking mammoth balloon looked sinister and downright scary. At the same time, I was listening to some obscure piano jazz trio on Jazz with Bob Parlocha. I told myself at that moment that I would one day throw something together to remind me of that eery moment. And here it is. Most of you will probably recognize the drum and upright bass loops. I've tried to alter them enough so that they're not too obvious. Enjoy!

Thanks, guys. I'm glad you enjoyed this litte diddy I threw together. I guess there's really nothing scary about it, but maybe a little comical. Thanks again!

Nice track
Mr. White, you may have just thrown this together, but it sure is cool. Only someone who has listened to (and probably played) a lot of jazz could just whip this up like you did.

Wonder what piano software you used. Sounds pretty good.

Thanks!
Thanks, John. Piano really isn't my principle instrument, but sometimes it's fun to fool around with it. Now, yourself? You're the real deal and I have thoroughly enjoyed your jazz piano. I would definately consider you one of the few great pianists on this site, so a comment like that from someone at your caliber means a lot ot me. Thanks again.

Groovy

I like what the left hand plays, a lot , just the right thing .
Also the right hand brings some nice notes and accents in it's chorus .
The piano sounds great .

What loops?
No, really, they didn't catch my attention at all, as I was too focused on your playful piano stylings. This is pure cool.
