Fred Chalenor and Drew Canulette sent me this one day in 2013. It was an unfinished tune that Fred presented as a song germ.. something we could make into a finished product with some additional musical material or use it as a demo to present to a unit. Drew did the recording engineering and drum programming. Fred did the bass and guitar.

Each little section presents a classic Fred musical feeling. It feels like Fred.

I miss Fred the musical genius presenting me with incredible song after song to work on together for 42 years. One idea after another. I did my best to give it back. I don' think other people can really imagine what it was like...
