The magic was discreet but immediate,
with Nir Sabag on drums and Max Schlegel on bass.
Nir is from Israel, and I have yet to have one bad session or rehearsal with him. There might be days with more or less energy, but the feeling is always there. It’s a kind of magic.
Moments are grounded in time.
Common Sense is spoken.
It’s was difficult that day, being on both the technical and the musical side. Testing and checking out the set-up, signal flow, headphone mixes, etc. In fact I was terribly disapointed with the upright sound. An AKG was probably moved away from its position, or Max changed position while rehearsing.
I proposed a rhythm changes in Bb, with a Bossa-nova feel on the A’s and a swing on the B’s.
It became “TEKILA”, which also is a phonetic for “T’es qui là ?”, which means “Who are you now ?” in french.
A fun topic.
