Chicago Chronicles Epic Week 2 is back with “Devil’s Sweet”; an at-times menacing track that goes off on wild tangents throughout its 10-minute runtime. It’s an experimental piece, perhaps the most experimental thing Chicago ever committed to wax, though it mostly winds up being a showcase for Seraphine’s drumming chops. With “Devil’s Sweet”, Seraphine not only gets an extended drum solo, he gets to illustrate a softer side by playing with brushes. In many ways, the first side is a portrait of the band’s percussion-horns axis, and shows a really different take on the band to that point, with influences ranging from Miles Davis to John Coltrane to Santana.
This chart is 2 years in the making. I initially asked Meander to map and chart drums when I first started not having the confidence to do it myself. Since then OscarJ had a run at perfecting the massive amount of drum notes and finally I went in more recently and precision tuned the tempo map and drums. It's not 100% but damn close. Thanks to those 2 guys for getting the ball rolling. Enjoy!
