Creature Dances

I was jamming with Lub Dub in Pullman and Porter Fitch brought up all the stuff around the Santa mythology so I ran with that. Originally I was just droning on C and Bb and doing all the stuff you hear on 4 Track Attack. But after a while I started looking into chords using those two notes and wrote a chord progression you can kind of hear working on Creature Dances. It’s a lot tighter on Winter Grasses and The White Christmas which is a metaphor and a drink they made at Red Star in Moscow. I was channeling Miles and Bird and Herbie on the solo parts that make up those head jams – Creature Dances and The White Christmas. Not being able to resist myself I then did the mixes you hear on 4 Track Attack which is exactly was that is – mixes off a Tascam and a cassette. Whelp, that’s music.
