Hi Joe, and gang. Not so much a low flying airplane as a lazily drifting cloud. That's awfully pleasant after last night, watching storm clouds move in over the city like the flying saucer in ID4.

Thought that said "DOC Ellis Orchestra" for a second...which would be almost too amazing to comprehend.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/3/14 11:22am Jeff:

This Don Ellis Orchestra piece developed in a different direction, but at first it sounded a lot like the friendly flugelhorn noodling of Mr. Chuck Mangione...

@Greg: Wasn't he the guy who pitched on LSD? If so, very appropriate! @Jeff: Yeah, it's sort of like Chuck Mangione stitched back together after his parts were ripped apart by vultures.
