In the spirit of sharing music with everyone in the club, I thought I would share some of my band's new music.
Be warned; It's all what most people would put under the free improv / experimental music category, so I don't want to scare anyone ;]
and for any ornette fans, we realize how sloppy Happy House was. that's the only time we played it.
Thanks for listening and let me know what you think, good or very, very bad.
PS. no alembics were harmed in the making of this music.

The bass is just way too far down in the mix.

The hook in the second song sounds like it's from West Side Story.

Here's a tip for everyone else; the third song, Drake, starts out featuring the bass! And in fact, the bass can be heard, and is quite good, throughout this tune, which also happens to be, for me, much more "listenable" than the first two tunes (of course I couldn't hear the bass on the first two).

The fourth tune, the cover that Austin mentioned, is the most recognizable. If you're somewhat versed in the history of jazz, you'll recognize the opening head. You can also hear the bass well on this tune too; and again, I like what Austin's doing. Unfortunately, the song is cut off before the sax player gets started; I was looking forward to seeing what he was going to do with it.

Yeah, it was all recorded in my apartment with the mic on my laptop, so there you go.
I'm not sure why the fourth tune cut off for you, Dave, as I just listened to it and the whole track is there, alto solo and all. Maybe give it another shot.
Thanks, Dave.
