Author Notes

Meet the family...
 
I've heard that this song is about the four member of the Beatles and what they did after that band. After hearing that it's kinda easy to see why. Now the lyrics are very cryptic and you can easily brush it off, however it's still there if you wanna look into it.
 
The keys part is really the main instrument on this track, with Keith Tippett at it with his crazy antics that I just cannot get enough of. A great flute solo that leads to the last verse when the song just sorta stops. Jazzy guitar playing, a solid bass line and some great drumming make this track one that all instruments will be fun on.
 
Thank you to AJFOne23 for doing the venue and making this custom as good as it can be!

Love Tippett! 

 

Saw Fripp reference the composer Unsuk Chin in a recent interview and found these piano études. You may enjoy them!
