Several months ago my brother Tom sent me a CD of instrumental jazz-rock jams. Whereas my roots are in rock and folk, his are in rock and jazz. This makes collaborating with him a bit of a challenge for me.
Be that as it may, a piece called STARLIGHT spoke to me on first hearing. I decided, with Tom’s permission, to make it into a song. This took some editing and rearranging of his individual tracks (which he promptly supplied) before I had a workable structure to sing and play guitar and bass over; the original being an extended jazz-rock vamp. (He excels at such things!)
The original mix was posted on another site. This is a thorough REMIX!
So here it is. Another instance of “sibling revelry” from me and my bro. A bit of a departure from what I usually do; it’s a tad prog…a tad psychedelic. As there is no genre here for PROG-O-DELIC, I have chosen ROCK.
Thomas Wark: Original concept & synth (drums, percussion, xylophone, and strings.)
Micheal Wark: Final arrangement, lyrics, vocals, guitars, bass, and sound effects.
Now… let’s get COSMIC!
