Thanks for the feedback! 2:10 and on is the only improvised section which I'm actually least comfortable with so it's funny to me that you thought that grooved the best. My signal to noise ratio during improvisation is pretty low, and it took me several takes to get through the first 2:10 without major errors, so I was pretty much in "don't play anything stupid!" mode at that point. When I arranged this, which was actually several years ago, I was on a Bobby Enriquez kick and the flourishing arpeggios and two-track glissando were staples of his:http://youtu.be/iPuErcutX0I?t=2m
I didn't play the arps very cleanly which is a good way to make them lose impact, but I do understand to each his own. I also never realized until finding this video clip just now that Bobby played those with one hand. Bastard! I should probably have a "non-virtuoso" version of this prepared for playing at the nursing home with those replaced by something a little more subdued...
Thanks for listening.
