I just personally despise the saxophone.  As an instrument.

I had a woman brought in as a session player who was about 5'4" and had a kinda long and lanky build.  She played baritone sax... and she fuckin rocked that thing.

The best part was her name.

Rose Hammer.

I shit you not.


How cool is that?

I really like the sax in there.. not really as an up front thing, but I think it adds nice texture.. I like how it just sorta creeps in and out.. I have my session booked at school for sat night to do my mix, I can't wait.  Look forward to being involved in my first IMP Smile

Saxophone and horns are my favorite instruments and belong in every rock band. I'm serious. I just can't stop thinking about horns!

Who would have thought sax would be such a polarizing instrument?  It's not like it's a truly offensive instrument...


... like banjo or accordian. Razz

Banjo's and accordians are WAY more acceptable to me.

Has anyone worked out what the lyrics are about? It took me a while.

Sufjan Stevens has single-handedly rescued the banjo.  Huzzah, thank you Sufjan.

The sax track is essential to this tune.

Dudes who hate the sax:  Go listen to some John Lurie records.  And some Morphine.   And of course, some jazz.. paul desmond, gerry mulligan, coltrane, wayne shorter, sonny rollins, etc.

I hear "In a Silent Way" in a lot of this tune.  Not hippy stuff... I think this could be mixed to be a Blind Melon tune, but it'd be a damn shame.

Buzzy vox... that's my big complaint... I guess it's a voice thing... it sounds like a swarm of beeez at times, when you get the lead vox and 2x harmony joining in.  I can't seem to roll it out... there's just so much 8khz bzzzing away.

Sorry for the ramblings... got at the single malt tonight. Wink
