I was not very happy with the recording I made the other night. Last night, after work, we went down to the parking garage and tried again. I also had spent yesterday and the day before, working out a couple more Haiku. So when we got there, I was able to make more than one recording.
“Full Moon” came out decent after a few takes. I will use it for the RPM Challenge cd but will record another version for the actual cd I make. I really do like the sound of my saxophone sounds in this particular parking garage. I have tried a few other places to get the echo effect and this one seems to do well for me.
One of the Haiku I wrote and recorded last night,
Barefoot in the grass
Tickles the soles of my feet
Feels good when I walk
Is an upbeat happy tune, kind of played like how I feel when walking through the grass barefoot.
Hot chai tea, cold day
Together with dark chocolate
Starts off with a chill and a steaming teapot. It then goes low to the smooth dark chocolate and wraps up with a “conversation” between a man and a woman as he is seducing her. I want to say to Alexandra, thank you for helping me with these recordings and your input on some of these tunes.
I have posted this on my http://www.reverbnation.com/jamesrinalduccijazz It is called “Chai Seduction” Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
I will post a couple more as I record them. I will be writing more Haiku tonight and working them tomorrow and have a couple new tunes posted hopefully, by Monday.
As always, I am grateful to all of you that read and follow along and support my journey!
