The Pickled Egg-Cool, laid back sound...zzz fest!

Post by NewcastleFalcon » 16 May 2017, 19:22

Now that Santana Track "Aquamarine" is just about the ultimate in superb laid back bass and percussion, but are there any others of that genre and quality out there :?: The sort of tracks that good quality audio equipment is made for.

Anyone got any suggestions :?:

.....few restrictions ..totally instrumental prefered but, if you have to, minimum of words please.

In the comments section for "Aqua Marine" there were a few suggestions in response to this comment from NintendoBilly...
What are other songs like this with no vocals and a good bassline? Any time I try to look up instrumental bass I get bombarded with house music and hip hop. I'm looking for music like this though.
Can the Pickled Egg regulars.......and newcomers of course....help out here?

It is partly nostalgia but also the amazing work experience.
We were half a dozen in a photographic department. All very close and friends with the graphics department too.
For three months we had no work to do and basically pleased ourselves.
Then for three months there was work, which ramped up to fever pitch just before the cutoff date.
At that time we would regularly work 36 to 72 hour 'days'

We played loads of different music but one of the favourites was Abraxas, played in the quiet hours when the rest of the firm was shut down.

Samba Pa Ti stands out as one of the most wonderful songs I have heard and has a very special place with me. Just oozes feeling.

That segued in to this:

Which was unknown to me but sounds vaguely familiar and fits your criteria better than Samba Pa Ti

Santana has many examples, " Song of the Wind" posted up in the "Contest", "Europa" and no doubt many others.

but I'll lob in "Lujon" by Henry Mancini.....he no doubt did it best himself, but this version from Tape 5 has nicer visuals!

Small Hours by John Martyn should be up there - but I can't find a good live version on YouTube :(
Good to see Pat Metheny making an appearance. Icefire from one of his very early albums - Watercolors - always intrigues me :)

...I was about to post up my parting shot for the fest when the electric went off!

I just let youtube autoplay on from Lonnie Liston Smith, and enjoyed a whole list of tracks from Roy Ayres perfect for the fest.

You can't beat a bit of vibraphone

Google "Pickled Egg Jukebox" from anywhere on the planet and up comes...yes....The Pickled Egg Jukebox in all its forms.

Having just re-discovered the keys to the jukie, you will see that as well as the original, and the Christmas Selection, there is a new one.

The Pickled Egg Jukebox-Laid back soundz. Ten tracks up to now should do for an hour's relaxation and chilling out. Good soaking in the bath music!

Regards Neil

Song contest not on as yet seeing as I only re-discovered the keys yesterday!
