Our inspiration for the feel/groove of this song comes is very loosely based on Michael Jackson’s ‘Working Day and Night’. It also has a little bit of a nod to Tower of Power. This is a pretty straight forward, slightly bluesy rhythm section with some FUNKY horns on top.
This is one of those ‘showcase’ pieces for the horn section. In the middle of the song, the rhythm section plays and then the horns respond. This would be a great opportunity to have the horn section come out front (and memorize their music). The horns will LOVE this song.
