Omar's alreight, he's a trainee Yorkshireman...
You're a natural musician. And you bring no ego to the table....so you'll go far.
It will be interesting to see what Omar accomplishes. A very cool prospective on a work in progress - go get 'em Omar!
Still a bit early, maybe in two years or so
lol how am I doing so far?
Thank you my brother I learn from you you know very well how to make me feel proud and happy
Why do you think we call them "fake books"?
Because they're not "Real Books"...
Good that you brought it up, why are they called fake books?
right on! that was remarkably devoid of blues cliches yet still sounding like good old fashioned blues! nice!
you two really sound good together! similar but different... kind of like a clip from the Crossroads festival... is Buddy Guy going to come out next?
glad to hear you! half blues half runaway - really nice vibe promised, built and delivered!
you really turn this tune toward the west - such a Mulholland, Sunset Blvd in the Rain vibe... Doors-ish but a lot less apocalyptic... Like something that could've been used in The Long Goodbye
Thank you Monte. We loaded this one with blues cliches, hence the similarity?
Because originally they were books - often as simple as a tune name, a key, and the first note of the melody !!!! - for bands to carry around to "fake" requests. Usually they were a collection of lead sheets, that is, the melody with chords.
The name "Real Book" is a joke based on the term "fake book"...as in the "real" fake book for modern jazz.
I bought my first one as a mimeographed under-the-table thing circa 1972. It cost 35 bucks and was WAY before the "legal" Hal Leonard versions.
The Long Goodbye was one tune, done in different styles throughout the picture.
well, i think it was more tonal approach really... i've heard the similarity before... hard edged, biting, with an achey lament behind it... to answer seriously....
of course it might just be plagiarism
that movie is so good. i still think of that as LA
Williams did the arrangements based on Hooray For Hollywood.. It's a UA film that I was hoping to release as a soundtrack CD when I was at MGM. After listening to the tapes, I decided against it. Although the mechanicals would have been cheap. LOL
It was the LA I grew up in. That and Point Blank with Lee Marvin.
