When I was in high school, there would be some days when I would spend hours in the music room improvising with friends. It didn’t matter what style it was; blues, to rock, to cheesy pop ballad-like themes, anything was fair game. It was as much a social occasion as it was a musical one, and it was one of those places in time that I look back at as fun beyond belief!
In Slam Jam, I revisit these memories and musical ideas. The flute is such a great (but not often used) instrument in popular styles of music. The low register has a nice mellow contrast to the brightness of the upper register. Those high notes can really wail on those blues riffs!
