Tenor Sax

This track is a very cool jazz composition that features a very smooth live tenor sax solo. The introduction begins with the piano playing some suspended chords along with a bare bones rhythm section that consists of shaker, hi-hat, kick, and acoustic bass. The bongos help usher in the slow triplet-based groove as the main melodic theme is presented by a live tenor sax and a Fender Rhodes keyboard playing together in a blissful unison. The second section modulates to a different tonal center as the mood of the piece shifts to one of even more smoothness; choral ambience joins in the party to thicken the texture. After this section, the entire form is repeated, and a brilliant tenor sax solo follows. The head is played one more time and the piece ends on a final note.

The ambience of this piece is such that it defines the fabric of urban society in a unique and colorful manner. The second section is highly expressive of the dream-like state often experienced by many when detachment from the detailed minutia of the daily activities is achieved, and a more elegant and profound overview of the massive amount of life and energy of the metropolitan area is experienced from a bird's eye point of view.
