Topic: JABB tenors

    JABB tenors

    "Steel" is a respectful dedication to Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. The unison tenor saxophones is a sound I always associate to their music. Here I have used all four Jabb tenors. The harmonies also tend to reflect their musical conception...

    You're knocking us dead with every shot lately,
    Roberto.

    Wow!

    The sound you're getting out of these saxes is just
    superb... as is the whole production. I've heard
    commercial albums that would blanch at your skill.
    There are nuances in this (like the hesitant quality
    of some of the exposed high notes) I can't even
    begin to guess how you're doing.

    I've listened through this several times now, my
    friend... great piece, and great production work!

    My best,

    Wow, and Wow again Roberto. !!!

    Steely Dan were probably my Favourite ever pop group, and Donald Fagen is one of my Favourite Keyboard Players.

    I have huge respect for Becker and Fagen as writers because they successfully integrated Jazz with Pop, without diluting the Jazz, or becoming overly self-indulgent with the Pop.

    Your piece very successfully captures some of the Dan vibe while being true to itself. It still sounds like a Soggetti original.

    I never wanted that Tenor solo to end.

    Your rendering skills seem to improve with every attempt. Your Tenor high notes are pure delight, vulnerable and wavering.

    I am currently working on a small Jazz group version of "Black Cow" for my wife's album, and I have been using Jabb to put the horn lines together. The Jabb is excellent at this kind of material.

    Bravo my friend.

    regards Joe

    ps. My only suggestion would be to widen the panning on the drums, at the moment they sound as though they are in the same position as for your recent Hefti piece. For this type of material the kick and snare might benefit from being panned dead centre.

    How delightful! I am knocked out by your fine writing and rendering.

    Thanks for posting this wonderful file.

    I agree with Joe that your drums would perhaps swing much better if they occupied more space, perhaps even in dead center. That way, they would "boot" both the left and right channels. In a live situation that's where the drums would most likely be located.

    My best,

    Roberto,

    Outstanding as usual. You've become quite the JABB master.

    When I first saw this thread title, I envisioned Pavarotti, Carrerea and Domingo all playing jazz sax.

    Roberto...

    Again you have touched upon one of my favorite groups! Perhaps we are related since our likes are so similar

    Your next project MUST be: LEE KONITZ and WARNE MARSH with Lennie Tristano. Do you know them??

    BRAVO!

    Jim

    EDIT: Roberto, I just went to your web site...what do I see? LEE KONITZ and LENNIE TRISTANO!!!

    I hope someday we can meet and play our favorite music together!!!

    Roberto!

    Once again, an extremely fine use of JABB! Great feel. You definitely have that "nod" to Steely Dan, and yet, it is your original piece. Very enjoyable!
