Morning Evening And Night (Joe's song, frederic spin) Smooth Jazz

  Spin-off   Spun by FredEricksen



Creative Brief

This cool tune Joe (FunkySkunk) has allowed me to spin. Thanks Joe! My idea is to make it longer, to incorporate more free sections, and add some saxophone. As it is a ballad of slower tempo, it will become a long song. Not too commercial or radio friendly, but that's cool. I like the tune, I like the melody, and think it will make a nice version of his song. Hope to have a rough sketch for the arrangement in about a week. I'll keep all of his original notes below.


This is a song I wrote, I think it has quite a nice smooth feel to it. I quite like the overall feel to it, but it's lacking some of the nuances of authentic instruments. So for anyone who is wanting/ willing to contribute, I was hoping it could keep more or less the same structure and sound, but with you adding some interesting ear candy to the mix.

For the trumpet, you can hear it just Ghosting behind the chorus. I wanted to keep this effect but with some nice real muted trumpet and ofc. anything else you think would add to it, i also wanted the muted trumpet to play around with the last 2 choruses, just adding some variety.

For the Bass, I wanted it to be super low and smooth keeping the same rough form.

For the Drums, I was hoping for the same feel, but with some interesting bits to mix it up; since its fairly repetitive.  

For the Guitar, I wanted there to be a nice soft guitar solo on the middle 8 and carrying over onto the last verse. 

The piano melody that I played is just a quick sketch, since I'm hoping to re record it once every other part is in place. 


Verse: Em9,  CM11 Chorus: Em9,  CM11 Middle 8: F 6/9, G9, Am9
