I'm sure some of you are familiar with Mike Milillo the composer, but may have been unaware that he is a gifted sax player as well. He has rediscovered his passion for playing, and I am fortunate to have him play on my latest track ... AEON GROOVE.
Aeon is Greek for an immeasurable amount of time, and that is how I view this piece. The beginning and end are an infectious straight time groove that could go on forever. The middle section is also straight time, but with an extremely syncopated keyboard line that was loosely played live over a seven measure structure, after which it repeats again on the downbeat.
I'm trying to blur the line between complexity, and groove, to find new ways to create music.
