Street Music

All original works copyrighted 1990, Patrick Dieter. All commercial rights reserved. 

I have performed improv saxophone on the street for years. It's a tough gig, but it forced me to get good without any props or distractions. If you had wandered North beach SF in the 70s or State St. Madison in the 80s and 90s, you might have heard me wailing away by myself -- pouring out my soul and bouncing it off the skyscrapers. It might have sounded like this. Just a quick stop in one of Madison's early all-digital studios.

    • (Just Jamming in the studio, with a fairly decent digital funk drum track behind.)
    • (Exploring some fusion, interval-style licks)
    • (The producer just threw me this track and I just cut loose on it.)
    • (The Producer tossed in some drum tracks, and this is what came out.)
    • (Just a couple of freestyle licks.)
    • (With a little more digital inspiration: a Bass and Synth Track.)

    • (A tribute to relationships so passionate they defy categorization.)
    • (About the transient nature of things, and finding deeper values within.)
    • (A psychedelic music homage!)

The Intentions -- Madi's Songs

As the Intentions was evolving as a band, a very magical traveler showed up at a jam session in upcountry Maui. His Chicago Soul roots resonated with my own Midwest Blues history, and we bonded deeply, first over the music, and secondly because we were probably the only two people on the entire island that knew what "shake and bake" meant! Madi is a brilliant soul singer, yet he also has a native touch with Reggae, Ska, Dance-Hall and dub.

    • (Madi lays it down reggae-style with a great comic touch. Extended Dance-Hall DJ rapping; you'd never guess you weren't in Kingston Town.)
    • (Gorgeous love song to the world by Madi, with extended sax work by Patrick. This started as a fairly angry break up song. I asked Madi if he would bring only positive, upbeat messages to this particular project. He changed 4 words on this brilliant piece and never looked back. Brilliant!)
    • (Madi lays it down Motown-style about falling in love. Romantic as well as spiritual.)
