Richard!! (J/K, L0L!!), it wasn't ABOUT the song, it was about GADD!!!!Not to be a dick, but I thought that was a horrible version of that song. No soul whatsoever. That song requires a lot more feel. I feel bad saying this, and I'm sure I'll get strung up by the Gadd police. He's a legend, I know, but this is a terrible example of everyone's playing. Sounds like a high school band.
Great for nostalgia though. Old videos like this are hard to come by for a lot of older players.
I'll take my kick in the balls now...
Okay, the guitar solo isn't bad, and the drum breakdown is very.... precise... But I stand by my accusation. NO SOUL!!!!
Great stuff.. I've heard a Navy Band destroy a gig once. I'd pay to see them again..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OffJBDeF1Tk&feature=related
and some straight ahead...
See, it's a little different now.
Some of the best all around players out there kill to get in these bands.
Not really the "same band"... I've seen a lot of the contemporary military bands.. Some of them are smokin' hot. I think that we are all really just having a laugh at the overall stiffness of a tune which we are now used to hearing as a funk anthem.These military big bands have come a long way in 40 years. Now they're considered some of the best in the world.
Here's the same band you guys are slamming playing a funk tune just last week.
