Yonder Mountain String Band
"Jeff's Scats and Raps" compilation (2007 remaster edition)
this was he first on my Yonder compilations,compiled back in 2002.
It's an attempt to gather together
some of Jeff's more oddball and 'out there' scats and improvs.
They range from the passionate (the scat jam after Raleigh
and Spencer from 1/17/02) to the funky (the 'we want the funk'
jam from 11/14/00) to the funny (Owner of a Hula Hoop cracks me
up every time, no matter how many times i hear it), to the
indescribably strange (the "Dave Johnston's sinister laugh jam"
from 1/18/02 has to be heard to be believed).
i used the best (and usually only) sources available for each
of these unique jams - more audience than SBD this time, but
overall very good quality. i adjusted some levels and made some
minor fades to give everything a smooth overall sound. As
always, burn gapless for maximum enjoyment.
Thanks to the original tapers, and to my beloved Kim, who
suggested this one in the first place. Enjoy.
