Back in the days when we used to go and watch Level 42 in concert, I was in awe of the whole band and never dreamed that one day Saxophonist Gary Barnacle would be playing on one of my tracks.
Well here we are and Gary has done an absolutely awesome Alto Sax lead break for my new single, Living Your Best Life. It’s been a joy working with him – despite his awesome discography he is so down to earth and really is one of the good guys from the industry!
I was trying to capture an old school jazz-funk vibe with this one, complete with retro synth lead break.
As always Gaz Rackham has done an awesome job on the bassline, with some classic ‘Gazzy moments’ thrown in there to delight your ears.
This has been so much fun to work on and I really hope you enjoy strutting your funky stuff to it! x
