1. Bali
In cart Not available Out of stock

As the name states, I composed “Bali” as soon as I got back from spending a week at a health and relaxation spa, in a town called Ubud, in the mountains of Bali. Margo and I walked a lot around downtown Ubud, in the evenings and there were always concerts of local music. I saw live Gamelan orchestras every night! But, it was the bamboo marimbas that some cats would play around the hotel that left their impression on me…

So this song originally began as a melodic riff played on a bamboo marimba. Next came the bass lines and, oddly enough, the rhythm instruments were the last ones to be added.

It’s the most “open” of the songs, lending itself to jazzistic improvisations and “call and response” kind of improvs, while the rhythm section keeps cooking.
