You know those things that are so sleek, so smart, so just…cool that you have to have it right away? Like a new iPhone, that new Ford Mustang, or killer piece of gear that just came out?
Well, that’s the way I always felt about this tune: Sleekness. It was always a fun groove, but then I got in touch with the amazing saxman Marcus Anderson (now blowing up everywhere!) and he put some amazing licks and stacks on this song.
As per my usual exacting producing style…I told him to do whatever he wanted. To me that is what Player A is all about. Letting players play. So the great stacked parts and solos from Marcus literally blew me away.
Sleekness HAD to be the first song on our album “Our Own Devices”.
Hope you enjoy.
