Odd Music - "The Musician"
Updated: Mar 14, 2019
This awesome, trippy song inspires me and gets me into that "jam" headspace.
Chick Corea's band, Return To Forever and vocalist Gayle Moran wind up this sci-fi-sounding song with what seems like unending sharp left and right turns. I like that this song really satisfies my ear, while throwing the whole concept of "compositional transition" to the wind.
What sounds like electric guitar, but are sometimes actually the funky meanderings of Corea's 70's synth leads meld together with the big-band brass quintet and the folky, almost classical-sounding vocals. I love the eclecticism of the compositional style, and the superb ability of the instrumentalists and sound engineers.
