Well done. Reminds me of some of the better fusion, like Weather Report.

I picture Buck Rogers and Twiggy getting down to this one! Retro futuristic!

Sounds like a Korg demo track. That is a compliment btw…lol. I had it made when those first came out and I worked at guitar center. None of my demos were that good…haha. I usually just did a quick beat, then started recording Chameleon by Herbie Hancock. Before I would get to track 3 it would be sold. Thanks Herbie!

Heard from another GC about Stevie wonder coming in and asking the clerk what he used to record. The guy was like I’m trying to get one of these ( was an 8 track hard disk recorder) Stevie was like ill take 2…one for me and I’ve for you. Dude was like…what? You can’t do that! Stevie said “I’m Stevie Wonder…I do what I want”…lol

You’re right, the heavy synth on this remix does sound like a synth demo playback. Cool. Sometimes I am the loud synth guy but I don’t noodle on the keys as much as I should or used to. I have a fair collection of neglected synths and keys. Got rid of my Hammond and Rhodes decades ago. These daze it is too easy to click MIDI notes into a DAW when creating remixes and there are hundreds of fun soft synths and other plugins.

You’ve got me wondering about the demo songs on my Korg TR. If it’s got ‘em, I haven’t listen to ‘em. I recall using some keyboard and synth demos on stage for break songs back in the daze. Some were quite good.

I still like jammin’ on Chameleon ‘:0)

This short remix uses samples/loops and some noodling on my little Korg TR. I’ve never had a keyboard with a recording capability or an outboard digital recorder, but I’ve speculated on how much fun it would be for quick compositional drafts and noodling.

The only mega-famous musicians we hear about stopping by music stores in this part of the Texas is ZZ Top. Haven’t heard of their philanthropic tendencies “:0)

Did you see the harpejii Stevie Wonder played on Dancing with Stars?

No I’ll have to check that out. I think Roland had the best Demo tracks.

Very cool. Man I want one now! But those things aren’t cheap!

Very cool tune my man! Thanks for including me in the mix. A very live mix which I strive for most of the time

It was meant to be!

Searched the ccmixter samples at 100-105 bpm for drums. Your drums were the onliest track that fit and fit well. Didn’t have to cut & paste at the beat or measure level. Found a 16 bar run where your timing was spot on and when you’re smackin’ d’cymbal near the bell that really cuts through nicely.

Great production. Clean and of high quality. I especially love the organ and the brass sounds. Very cool guys.

Cool. Joyful.
Send it to a TV production company of your choice, it would be brilliant as a theme to a show of some kind.
