Bestest horn section stuff around!! Great groove, and you’re proving conclusively that a bass does not need to be plugged in to drive the funk!

Thanks man, yeah I’ve always thought the upright bass was one of the funkiest instruments around….along with the clav of course. No clav on this one though : )

This is BRILLIANT!!! I love it

Thanks, I’m glad you like it. I think your voice is really at home in these sort of “Jazz with attitude” pieces. And they’re so much fun..gotta do more : )

This brings an entire different feel out of Helena’s pell (compared to your reggae take). Both are superb- I can’t pick a fav. It amazes me how you can do just about any style. Who are you, Jeris? :) The horns in this are off the hook. Well done all around.

Thank you! According to Google, I’m a vintage hair tonic that ‘rates cheers’ with Ronald Reagan and a bunch of other famous dead people…lol

Seriously though, I’m really a horn player more than a piano player, but I haven’t played the trumpet in many years. I plan on changing that, but for now…thank god for virtual instruments :)

lol… Google has an answer for everything, eh?

Oooo… Real, live trumpet samples may be in the foreseeable future? Sweeeeet. I played trombone in school… I could probably add some basic toots…

Hey, I played clarinet in school!!! We have the makings of a very fine horn section here, haha!

One time in bandcamp…
Ok that’s a pretty dated American Pie joke.
Yeah, I think some new Orleans style colabs would be cool.

Thanks Steve!

The beginning reminds me of David Brubeck’s “Take Five”. Bass, Piano and drums sound similar. And then this feelings fades away.

Snowflake cannot ed pick you again, so I’ll feature this one as song of the day. :) http://musik.klarmachen-zum...
permalink   Jeris Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 1:46 PM
Thanks!! Brubeck is one my favs :)
And of course ‘take 5’….gotta love that.

As you can probably tell by now, acoustic bass, piano, and some colorful drums are my favs as well.
permalink   Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 2:02 PM
Fantastic drum and piano groove, I adore the complicated polyrithmic voice contrasted to the raising horns. Very well done, and infectuous.
Straight to my fav’s playlist.

Thank you! Everytime I work with a Bill Ray drum sample I try not to do any quantizing or sequencing. I did that the first time I worked with a sample of his and it didn’t quite work. So, everything was just played to the sample live. That parts easy enough, but getting the vocals tight is another story. There’s some timing issues, hopefully I’ll have time to work them out tonight. Can’t adjust them visually…actually have to listen…lol.
I still want it to be loose, but not too loose :) actually my playing is probably too loose in places as well.
permalink   Jeris Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 6:38 PM
Man, that was tough to straighten out without imposing a real time on it. I THINK it’s better : )
permalink   Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 5:21 PM
This is so damn Funky!!!! That bass, the drums and horns really do it for me. The cherry on top, Helena’s Vocals…… wow. Great Mix My Man!!!
permalink   Jeris Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 6:39 PM
Thanks man! This was one of favorites to work on so far : )
permalink   Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 11:03 PM
Gots the cool Dave Brubeck groove, J. Really dig the vocals. Helena well conveys the retro soul jazz feel.
permalink   Jeris Mon, Jun 20, 2011 @ 11:22 PM
Thanks! And yes she does..exactly!
permalink   Tue, Jun 21, 2011 @ 7:18 AM
Fabuloso!!!! You continue to impress my friend!

Thank you Mixter Friendster,
There’s no shortage of surprises with you either :) have fun @Fringe Central
permalink   Wed, Jun 22, 2011 @ 7:57 PM
This is one of your best and I probably say that to myself on every remix you put up lol. Words can’t describe how good it is :) Is that brill-cream in your hair in that new pic lol?

Thanks man! No…it’s Jeris…seriously. LOL
For a good laugh go to Google Images and type “Vintage Jeris”
