This single is a rough demo from 1984 when I briefly tried (and failed) to become a jazz harpist. The cassette burn I have says I recorded the parts separately on my old TEAC 3340s 4-track reel-to-reel “Simul-Sync” machine (in a big living room with a cheap mic). Thankfully, I transferred those original tracks to ADAT, so I was able to clean this up a bit. You're hearing my original semi-grand Lyon & Healy Style 17G harp on which I deliberately tried to transcribe Vince’s piano parts and solo fairly closely (you can hear me barely keeping up with myself trying to do his licks!). Flute is by a session guy I used for various personal projects named Michael Andreas, drums are by Peter Milio and I did the electric bass. Arrangement is my own. I remember how those weird chords really threw Michael a curve (and I couldn’t afford more than a couple takes)! Oh - and my caricature was done by an easel artist at Disneyland around the same time.
