OK! Long story here. This track started out WAY different (the original is still in my list) Andy Wigzell and I have been talking about doing something together for an age. So he sent me some parts to go with the original version but.... on really listening to his files I thought his sax playing was so bloody GOOD that I should feature it rather than let it just be a part. So I rewrote a sound bed to go with this terrific piece of music he produced. I dipped it in reverb and delay and have doubled some parts in other ways than I think Andy expected but the playing stands out proud. The water sounds were recorded by Andy in the Sacramento Mountains in New Mexico and was retrieved by him from the Found_Sounds at Macjams. Thanks Andy for giving me the opportunity to write a hopefully appropriate backing for this. Cheers mate!

I like this Funk!
I'm glad to hear you worked with this sax playing to create this tune. There could be a future video for this, but who knows when.
