Posted by Vinnie V. on April 27, 2011 at 11:49 AM

       Back in the 1990's I was in Sacramento CA. (My Home Town)

 And I was seeking out a Jazz Fusion group to play with,

 That’s when I found the group "Interplay", a local group that had

 Been playing Jazz Fusion Originals  together for a year or two.

 Interplay consisted of a drums, percussion, guitar, and bass.

 I met with the guitar player Shaun Mahan who was also

 The group’s leader, composer, arranger, as well as a schoolmate of mine.

 Shaun and I met twice for an hour or two prior to this recording (by invitation from the

 Faculty at Sacramento City College this song was recorded, engineered and digitally

Mastered onsite by the students of S.S.C.).

I remember attending the recording session that day. I was eager to please!

I was so pumped up,  I laid my sax solo track in just two recording takes.

It was a proud and fun introduction into a refreshing, light, humble,

Talented group of musicians known as "INTERPLAY”.

Take A Listen & Enjoy !


Composed By Shaun Mahan

Posted by Vinnie V. on April 27, 2011 at 11:49 AM

           This was the first song I recorded without a drum machine. 

All drum tracks were performed on my Ensoniq EPS sampling workstation.

The seagulls in the intro, were courtesy the nearby landfill sampled by myself 

while standing on top of my ford truck in the middle of an ocean of garbage!

The ocean  sample was from the Ensoniq EPS Clasic Library Sounds.

The bass guitar was performed live by my friend Ryan. I asked him to use a 

fretless bass for the intro and verse and a fretted P-bass for the chorus. 

I enlisted the guitar player from the band I was gigging  with, 

(The Joe MaMa Band)  a gentleman we called  "Captain Jack"  A.K.A.  Dave  McKeen

to perform the guitar track.

I played my  Selmer VII  soprano sax  for all the saxophone  tracks.

I used a Roland S-10 and Ensoniq EPS for all the other tracks including horns.

Composed and Arranged by  Vinnie V.

Recorded  August 1991 in the laundry room of my home in Southern Oregon.

This song is dedicated to my dear loving sister "Carla" . Peace Sis !
