Cool!

My version was originally a piece with the somewhat pretentious (but seemingly now portentous) title of “The Rise and Fall of Western Civilization”, and I played it for a packed auditorium at my high school (Fairfax High, in L.A.), with another sax player friend from high school.  The whole audience was snapping their fingers in time.  That was cool.  Eventually (a couple years after Lego) I recorded another version of that piece on my 2000 CD called “House Music”; on that CD it’s called “Rise and Fall”.  I recorded two versions on that CD; similar yet different from the Lego version.  When the well-known Latin percussionist Pete Escovedo heard my version (I did my CD release party at his club Mr. E’s back around 2000), he said, “now that sounds like jazz.”  High praise, I thought.

 

Here's the YouTube versions of that, for those who don't have Spotify:
