Moonjumpers session #2

powered by ODEO
We had a smashingly good practice session yesterday evening. To loosen us up, our teacher told us to concoct a bassline and play in unison, taking turns to solo. Our bassist came up with something funky, I said let’s go and this is what we got.
We haven’t met up in half a year since our last drummer quit, so considering all factors I was happy our random practice sounded like this.
The band, as you hear them:
Joseph – drums. He’s the new drummer, I dare say he’s the best I’ve worked with so far. He’s only like 17 but can play almost anything we throw at him. Yeah!
Richard – bass. Quick to learn, knows how to vary his style, and hardworking. (I think I’m the laziest one in the band!)
Me – piano. My main improvisation is at 3:09 if you want to hear me out. I like stronger melodies in my improvisation, rather than just random notes.
Nicol – keyboards, synths, sound effects, she can do it all. We have great respect for each other.
As our school concert is coming up in June, I don’t want to broadcast the actual material we’re gonna play (that’s also not confirmed yet). But I’ll put up samples every now and then of other stuff we’re jamming.

    For a warm-up piece, it sounds quite good. The rhythm is catchy. The drum sounds very steady. The bass sounded unsure at the start but found its way later; melded quite nicely with the rest. The piano piece sounded quite polished; distinct melody. The synth was strong and polished too; could be louder. Overall, it sounded catchy. Nice work. I certainly would have problems improvising and would be full of wrong notes 🙂
