The piece’s signature funky bass line was played by Hancock on an ARP Odyssey, as was one of the keyboard solos. The other keyboard solo was played on a Fender/Rhodes piano.
Odyssey solo goodness starts at 10.50
This video was a real eye-opener for me. It completely transformed my view of the my Mk 1 ER-1 from a solid but uninspiring drumbox, to a living-breathing instrument in it’s own right. Excellent work.
I have since abused my own ER-1 from frantic knob tweaks, and later picked-up a sampling ESX-1. Oooo. Ahhh.
Lovely use of the ESX-1 Arpeggiator, and a pretty nice track overall.
Implosion of the New Frontier Casino, as Vegas, November 2007. Best boom ever I heard. I was pissed at the time and nearly shit myself when those charges went.
