We had an Easter Monday Jam with the Posse of Wonderful (variously called Law of the Sea, The Night Terrors, Grown Man Cry, or Hey Let’s Play Some Music.)
In amongst all the Beatles etc, one of the tracks was a version of Sinnerman, which I find is a spiritual made popular by the Weaver’s long before Nina Simone got to it. Our version of it rocked out at about seven minutes, still well short of her epic version.
In the same mood and the same key, we did a bang up job of Blue Boy”s Remember Me, that 90’s dance hit with the sample from Marlena Stewart’s Woman of the Ghetto.
I find that my wife, despite not being at all a woman from the ghetto, can really pull off quite a believable version of this. I have had it in my head ever since.
Our version was actually much better than this…
Here’s the original Marlena Stewart live track. Our version was not much better than this. How could you be?
Two mixdowns of a semi-serious recording session with Michael and Louise, a few Sundays back.
The mixes still have alive quality but in with the process was far more careful and procedural than the rather haphazard wine and cheese influenced sessions this group is used to having. Next jam session might be one of that other kind.
Myself and Louise and Jeremy Phillips and Michael Heim had a jam a few weeks back and there are recordings which are not for public consumption owing to their brain melting brilliance. Only those in the know get the hyperlinks.For the time being.
Jeremy has suggested that the name for this outfit be called Posse of Awesome and I do not have a better name.
There is apparently some a video of us on Facebook singing a very drunk version of Anarchy in the UK in waltz time. I am not on Facebook so haven’t seen it.
