Soil & “Pimp” Sessions: 16 Blues

This one mostly came easy but I don’t know if that’s a good thing.
I did less overthinking which is good, but I don’t know if it paid off here.
That said, I think I captured the progression of the song well enough.

Soil & “Pimp” Sessions’ “16 Blues” is from Pimpin’.

I hope you enjoy.

Sounds of people in a space a heard. Soon bass comes in, flickers and draws. Keys follow along and build a bit around the bass, adding more form. Eventually percussion and brass follows; both are slow and play it cool and mysterious. Vocals speak in short parts and the sounds move with a smooth steadiness.

Rhythm continues whilst the keys and brass fade in and out, rising and falling in parts. Eventually a shift and the sounds let a little loose and a little cooler, but there is a sense of tension building. The brass has greater presence; the bass is harder and the percussion keeps things a little more on edge.

Suddenly all reaches that build, but rather than explode all flows and blooms and expands and keeps it all cool and melodic. There is energy but the expression is beauty. There is rise and fall and motion and grace, and the coolness remains and it remains big. Keys wrap around and flow through percussion and the bass keeps its steady groove going whilst the brass seems to find a crest that it rides. Vocals grow more frantic and eventually seem to fragment whilst the percussion and bass lock further in and increase in their intensity and keep building.

The brass rises and the vocals steady, but only for a few short seconds as the instruments find their final point and the song ends.
