This collaboration with Shawn Cole really pay off. I only had one with Larry due to my system constraint. I love Spring, too bad we have only one season here in Singapore. Only spring. Neat use of the harmonica, way too delicious. You really have the unusual talents to make gorgeous music that really put awesome images into our minds.

May the LOVE be with you always.

Mister Groove, let me tell you - again - how much I'm diggin' your beats ... especially in the morning hours. They give me energy for the day and make me happy. :-) So there!
Anyways, the combination drums/groove and synth work is just amazing. A great, moving song - always eager to invite my feet to tap. Watch out kids - I'll be dancing on my desk soon ... lol.
Good work guys!

Never heard you play a bad note...
Whatever style you go for,you nail it,and every element just feels right.
Harmonica...superbe,likewise the whole band ensemble!!
Yeah you could take a nursery rhyme and funk the life into it.
Excellent musicianship and production.

Love this funk...Great bass & percussion movin' it 7 that ain't're so good at making me get up and move...shake it don't break it Larry, FAB tune right off the start...has a bit of Stevie Wonder I felt...but t's all you (I guess cause my son has been doing Stevie's melodies on bass) Anyhow love the progression, lovely organ, great keys just cascade so well along with the neat harp additions. Gotta love this as a fave it goes. All instruments are in perfect placement. Love the horn synth sounds. Never can get enough off brass...This is an EXCELLENT groove my friend, Terrific sound FINE PRODUCTION.
-Great! -Vesa.
(have to have my bass playing son hear this for sure).

04/09/08 10:37:25PM @henry-tarnecky:
Larry and Shawn... this track is thoroughly entertaining.... a fine up feeling weave of appealing sound dudes. That bass and drum groove is ideal for the skilled blended lead work that is sweetly delivered. Fine shuffling down the road track man! Congrats guys!

hi Larry, I'm desperately waiting for spring so I can get the heck outta here and head north. This track just gets things started a little early. Feelin fine with this one, great synth riffs matching up nicely with the fun and funky groove. Lovin the organ stabs..really tight mix.
..everyone needs this track right about now..

10/10/08 12:37:08AM @piperon:
Every piece of your fabulous music made me wonder - where the hell you got all these wonderful sound? Damn, I would hijack you and your sound system if I know. The mute sax is cool and the deep synth is another sound I would like to have. Ok, here is the deal, I promised I will not turn you into a werewolf during the fullmoon and you will pass me the secret of your majestic sound. Deal? If this offer is turn down before the fullmoon, I will get some blonde babes to make you a tame wolf instead. LOL!!!!!

With million of love from Singapore.

Hey wolf.
Whoever did the keys on this track has my attention. Great groove. Made want to jump in the car and cruise Surfers Paradise with the top down and the breeze in my hair. Shame it's pouring with rain at the moment, (and it's meant to be summer). Man, ever need a track from me, let me know. I'm keen..........a hammond track maybe?....I just can't help myself. LOL
