    "Erotica In F Minor"

    This piece is something unique, I believe, to this forum. It's jazz/fusion, composed on-the-fly, with extended notated solos (such as they are). It was written with my girlfriend/fiancé in mind during an extended, long-distance romance.

    Some brass, some strings, some Hammond organ, some Fender Rhodes, and a bit of imagination pulled it all together.

    Nice changes and solo work give this piece the
    lift it needs. I'm sure your girlfriend really enjoyed
    this creative endeavor and I hope it really brought
    you two closer together.

    Really great chart,

    This is a very nice piece. We do have a number of members that often delve into jazz, it just seems lately that this area has been a tad neglected.

    Well done

    Quite a nice chart, Phillip -- I enjoy Jazz fusion work,
    and this is very well done.

    The one thing I'd suggest a second look at is the
    level of the percussion. Throughout the piece, I found
    myself straining a bit to hear by it to what the other
    players were doing.

    Much enjoyed!

    My best,

    David,
    Thanks for the kind words ... percussion levels have been an issue for me ... due mainly to the fact that this music was mixed on a pair of PC speakers, with little or nothing below the nominal bass level. Being a former audio engineer, any and/or all discrepencies are painfully obvious, with respect to audio quality. I was looking for a 'droning' sound, as far as the rhythm section goes, whilst the soloes unfold. Perhaps it was a little too droning... Ah, the troubles with loops... Kick drum is king, in rock/pop music, and it occupies much too much of my attention. I made a note of tis in another post...

    To wit: 'rhythm' may be the most mispelled word in the English language. I find this amusing, somehow.

    Rhap2!,
    You get it! I apologize for the hurricane (IKE), and my brother's quadruple bypass, which I had zero control over. When it rains, it pours, I suppose. That's what they say...

    This was a sort of extemperaneous piece, if there is such a thing... Notes following other notes...with some reason. Wondering if other writers ever write that way - on-the-fly.
    Some of my best work is created that way...

    As usual, thanks for the educated and informed opinion; I do not think of myself as a jazz/fuzion composer...more like an ex-rock-n-roll guitar player, with a love for Hindemith, Bernstein, Bach, Handel, New Radicals, Beatles, et cetera...

    Seems the more time goes on, the more eclectic we get. Right?
