I heard they did a new instrumental the other night,how did it sound?

It was very nice, slow, with some really cool jazzy licks from Derek and Warren. Nice tune.

It's beautiful. Very tasteful and reminds me a lot of the work Derek did with Jimmy Herring on his new album "Lifeboat"

I went back and replayed the new instrumental a couple of times on Moogis. Man, it sounds like Duane was standing over somebodys shoulder when it came together. Nice Duane style licks with some real hot fusion stuff mixed in. The neat thing was, the whole band looked real comfortable playing it. I hope this one shows up on one of the live disc so I can get my hands on it.

That new piece of music was stunning in my opinion and very different...in a good way! It was like a gorgeous symphony and there was a lot of layers to my recollection. It was certainly Jazzy, but NOT swing-Jazz like "Kind Of Bird" or "Illness". It was more in the vein of "Egypt" but yet not exactly. It had almost a eerie-spacey feel at the beginning with angular Jazz chords that sounded amazing. Then like most ABB instrumentals it kept building tension, this time with power chords and then exploded into a soft landing on a giant pillow. It was quite a musical journey for sure.

If the last instrumantal was called "Egypt", this one should be called "Madagascar" or "Stone Henge"....or something like that!

I am truly looking forward to see how it develops and what places it will go.

"Stonehenge!" Great idea! They can set up an 18" Stonehenge model and Gregg can do a mystical spoken word intro about Stonehenge and the druids. And before the shows, we can ask Butch if they're going to do the song, and he can say "No, we're not gonna **** ing do "Stonehenge!"

Wow you said pretty much everything I was going to say, including trying to come up with a title based off of "Egypt"!

GREAT tune by the way!
