I posted my first demo of this song  in early January just after I wrote it for New Year’s as an ode to finishing, taking care of business, getting things done. Now it’s December and I’ve got it ska’d up for the next album – MANTRAS – with drums, bass, and horns.

I’m thrilled to have collaborated with Grupo Fantasma and Brownout trombonist and horn arranger Mark “Speedy” Gonzales. He brought saxophonist Dan Bechdolt and trumpeter Kevin Flatt over to Tonehaus a few weeks after we recorded drum and bass with my main men Gray Parsons and Doug Snyder.
