Stand Up and Dance

By antler on September 23, 2018 7:46 pm

This is one of those tracks I wish I had more time to work on.

Initially started because I found a new recording of a live show of the Avishai Cohen Trio (bass player) on youtube and I love his music so gorramn much. Harmonies and rhythm are partly inspired by him, though a jazz ensemble on a game boy quickly sounds completely different. Interesting how much timbre plays a role (and the fact that I'm not a legendary bass jazz player tongue).

Anyway, it's Sunday evening and I have to record this for upload. Wanted to spend more time on the solo (lengthen it) and I'm not convinced by the segue into the last chorus personally. In any case, listen to Avishai, and stand up and dance!

I'm not much of a dancing person, but making chip jazz sounds like an interesting challenge.

It is! Difficult to express full jazz harmony with just three pitch channels. And LSDJ is built for 16-beat bars, so this is Hop commands galore.
