    Rock N' The Blues

    This is all JABB. Piano, drums, bass, sax & trumpet.

    It's called Rock N' The Blues. I recently bought the new Jerry Lee album and I think it inspired me.

    This is an AABBBCAA tune. The three short choruses each have different Jerry Lee chops somewhere in them among other things.

    AAaaaaaah now that really does my heart good, listening to your great track, Fastlane--YEEeeah, you gooOOoo!---

    Playing it again. Great piano playing--That Jerry Lee album got you nice and revved up it would appear.

    Third time's a charm---letting it loop through again.

    Ending with the piano solo, when it went through the new changes during the coda, it sounded great--I did kind of miss the brass though. They could make that even a more power-house ending, but I understand you wanted to spotlight the piano, and that certainly worked too.

    I'm SO loving the variety on this Forum. THANKS for a great time, Fastlane!

    Yeah!

    First one I listened to today, Phil (just got up). Hell of a way
    to get my lazy backside in motion... rofl!

    You've got Jerry Lee down and down good in parts of this;
    including a proper trouncing of the piano in a few spots.

    Nice work, my friend -- good to hear someone really belt
    out a tune around here!

    My best,

    Phil,
    The piano has rolled over and asked for help.
    You beat the livin' daylights out of it.
    Did you get your foot up there to.
    But is this the right stuff to be playin' here?

    I'm glad you enjoyed it. I intended this to be a fun listen. I got a little wild and crazy. I may redo the ending but the piano does sound good. I have to tone down the bass drum on the second verse anyway.

    You might want to check out that Jerry Lee album, Last Man Standing. It may be the best pop album of 2006.

    Thanks for the nice words David. I have started every day for many years with 600 crunches, sometimes more.

    I'll let you in on a secret. The beginning is actually Gershwin-Rhapsody In Blue. I'm sure George would have approved.

    Ray, I was jumping up and down on it!

    I was a little concerned Gary might take JABB away from me for posting this one.

    A Rather unsavory influence with all the drinking, belligerence and womanizing. Disgusting isn't it.

    Hey Fastlane,

    Fun stuff. I would like to hear the brass bumped up a little bit, but you did capture the essence of "The Killer". The dramatic pauses and heavy handed bombastic style are definately a Jerry Lee trademark. I live in Memphis and he still plays out in public whenever he's able. He is pretty amazing to see live - he is definiately at his best in front of a live audience.

    Cheers,
    Kenny

    Fastlane Phil--Hope you don't mind me bringing this to the top again. I just had too much fun listening again, and think it's only fair others have that opportunity too.
