Hi! So we’ve come to the last two videos from our New York Sessions project. Once again, I would like to thank everyone for sharing our music, but please continue to to spread the word if you can! These next two videos are of two originals that I wrote. We begin with a tune that starts a lot of DW6 shows: Hot Sauce Williams. I named this song after a restaurant that I ate at in east Cleveland with Jon Lampley. It’s a fast food style restaurant that specializes in fried chicken and their famous hot sauce. It was one of those guiltily delicious meals. I had oil/ hot sauce on my hand for the rest of the day. Needless to say, it was quite the experience, and I will definitely eat there again next time I’m in east Cleveland. The spirit of the restaurant is definitely in this tune. It features all three horn players in an extended blues solo.
Next is another original that I wrote about another experience with Mr. Lampley and Mr. Ott. Lumps came about during an audition that Jon, Chris, and I were taking in Chicago. We were all waiting to be to play and they were calling out the names. Jon was the next to be called and the receptionist misread Jon’s last name “Next is mister Jonathan Lumpley!” Without a moment going by I shouted out “We call him Lumps!” And Jon went in to do his thing. Since we always call him lamps, lumps was the perfect name for his slow jam feature.
