So what - George benson - Modal D dorian Eb dorian
Started with Freddie freeloader, tried to work out a scat melody. I have come with an idea to try for scatting a story line but obviously with the Do-Dat phrase.
I thought of a story in my mind and decided to tell it through the scatting in my mind
At last we have an agreement and structure. starting with the head then ABA section then clockwise solos into ABAB before coming back to myself.
I have to say that thanks to Gary for starting this off, i get so annoyed at the pissing about that goes on and if it wasn't for Gary's saying he worked out a head then i sometimes wonder where we would be. I think there are so many great musicians out there but not everyone has the maturity levels thats is desired.
after that rant i feel that things are coming together but that due to the amount of time we have been playing in the jazz band, if i was leading this we would have things in place and rehearsed along time ago.
This Masquerade lyrics
are we really happy here with this lonely game we play
lokking for the words to say
searching but not finding understanding anywhere
were lost in a masquerade
both afraid to say were just to far away
from being close together from the start
we tried to talk it over but the words got in the way (scatting at the end of each verse)
were lost in this game we play
last A section is scating
