It Came Upon A Midnight Clear
Happy Hollandaise! (1995)
sweet ride w/rivets, snare drum, bass, guitars
This is probably my favorite of the 30-odd recordings I did for this project. The arrangement is harmonically benign, but there's a rhythmic thing happening that ended up being a very cool effect. I wrote a back-up for twin guitars which follows the rule: if a melody note does not fall on a beat, a note in the back-up will fill the eighth note space, and vise versa. The resulting groove is super bouncy. I'm particularly proud of the break between choruses.
