Glorious horn explosions, between bits of simmering groove. Fantastic vocals, in all their parts… totally organic, and rockin wah guitar (did you borrow Haskel for that?) And the periodic James Brown howl is a nice touch.

Yeah. this is great. The infunktion is back.

Thanks Richard. Jeris’ track is super funky with a that rhythm begs to be internalized!

HA!!! Awesome work Susan…put a big ol’ smile on my face : )

Your vocals really work the energy and dynamics of the track. And your harmonies always amaze me. Thanks!!

Thanks Jeris. This track is just soooooo damn groovy — man the syncopation in here is just divine!

I’m so glad you like it. I really wish I had the skills to have mixed one of your vocals but I’m just not that adept. I really focused on the production of this track though, spending a day watching youtube videos to get all kinds of tips re eq, compression, frequencies, etc. So it was a fun challenge in that regard. And of course, it’s always a treat to sing to your work.

Thanks Emily. I spent a day watching youtube videos to increase my mixing knowledge — in that regard, this song kicked my tuchas.

Your voice over this rhythm is very much like the late 60s early 70s Bay Area vibe, like Paul Kantner and Grace Slick meet Tower of Power and James Brown ‘:0)

Coolio unique, Susan

Thanks guys. Despite my deep love for a funky groove, I’m still a folk singer at heart.

Thanks Greg. This was really fun to sing, but the real task was the mixing. I had a lot of fun learning new things while I worked on this track.
