A PW video nightmare....

Discussion in 'Recordings [DB]' started by Paul Warburton, Dec 9, 2011.

  1. Good God, this shows up @ Facebook this morning......me in 1981 with Pharoah Sanders in Slovenia, rushing like a bat outta hell and channeling Ron Carter like a fool.
    Forgive me, Lord......:eek:
  2. Hell,I dug it.
  3. Thanks, man.

    I can't take full responsibility for copping Ron because one night I did that **** as a joke to a bass player in the audience and Pharoah says...." Aww yes! DO THAT more, especially down on that low B string!"
    Pretty silly....I shoulda' said that I charge more fer that ****. :help:

    Tempo at the beginning: about 175
    Tempo at the end: about 180

    Rushing? I don't think so; just pulling on the front side of the beat a little bit! Did they let you take a solo on that one? I'd love to have heard it!
  7. Thanks, you guys.
    statsc, thanks fer checking out the time. I play way on top alla time to try to get it to swing. I'm one of those who could care less if it rushes as long as the head can be played out without a hassle for the lead player. The piano player and drummer tended to lay back into the time and most guys would just pull down with them but i'm stubborn I guess. Listening back, though, it sounds like Pharoah is playing more on top with me. Yeah, I got a solo on every tune but he liked me to go out and play by myself with no back up so i'd just play BS.
    Eric, this was my first European tour and it was great to have the Bohmann with me. I dint have a trunk yet so they paid half fair seat for the bass for a long tour. That direct to the board makes the bass sound like a tin can.
    BTW, the bass player who I mentioned that I played the Ron Carter stuff as a joke for was Wayne Darling.
  8. It sounds very good. Be proud of that clip. Yes the tempo goes up, but so what? (I checked it out as starting roughly at half note = 88bpm, and ending at roughly half note = 99bpm) So a good 22 quarter notes per minute faster when the clip ends. Does the rest of the tune exist on youtube?)

    Hey OLDGUY, nice playing! ;) The bass's tone kinda suffers from the period amplification but what the hell, eh?

    As far as I'm concerned, the little bit the tune sped up is about right for a live performance - it builds excitement. There's nothing worse than having a song slow down on stage...

    If only I could play so poorly.


    And I dig the "Ron Carter" -nicity!
  15. Thanks again, you guys...even Jack who calls me THE OLDGUY

    My favorite part is @ about 9:15 where I gave the piano player my answer to Benny Goodman's "The Ray" glare. My girl, Julia, brought this to my attention yesterday. I just couldn't seem to get him off his ass.
    Enough, and thanks...

    Check out Eric Hochberg's latest side that this thread keeps bumping out......wonderful stuff.

    Speaking of "looks," your drummer has got "that hxxxxy's crazy" look.

    Nice tune.

    nice groove, great tone, paul. if only the underwood and spiro's always sounded this good. i hear you listening to the soloist... the piano guy seems to be doing a good job of plowing through the middle and listening to himself.

    PW, man. Please pardon us and note that most of us spend years in a futile effort to reach that level of suck-itude.

    Carter-isms. The double triplet-rake around 1:42. The the Ron-Buster smear at 6:18. The arpeggiations around 6:51. They work. The Pharoah hath declared it to be so!

    + + +

    For those seeking a more up-to-date view of Mr. Warburton's tone and musicality, consider a listen to his 1997 quartet date "Speak Low."
