So I was just messing around with my recording software to satisfy a curiosity of mine ... the bass Solo in Paul Simon's You Can Call Me Al played by Bakithi Kumalo ..... was it truly Palendromic? Did they reeeeeeally use the the 1st half of the bass solo and just reverse it for the 2nd half .
Well... to my surprise... no... it wasn't. I loaded the tune into my software ... reversed it... waited for the solo and the 1st half now sounded nothing like the 2nd half and to my even greater surprise ... the 2nd half of the bass solo is a sample of Jaco's Chromatic Fantasy from the Word of Mouth album - sounds like from the 2:45 mark of the tune.
Crazy. I'll post an audio sample later.
I know you are an honourable man but until I hear it I will not believe it. Sounds like an April 1st factoid.ReplyDelete
