Check out the short film: vimeo.com/191621789

July 8th 2012, A community of funk and soul musicians took over Kung Fu Bakery Studios for a day of spontaneous improvisational songwriting.
Their goal was to capture the elusive energy of a jam session, using improvisation to drive the creative process. Selected for their ability to listen well, think fast, and respond creatively in the moment... they rolled the tape and played their hearts out.
Twenty musicians, fourteen hours, and four songs later...
... Here's what happened.

Track Name: Crispy Bacon
Fire's hot. It's getting crispy in here!
Track Name: So Sweet
Ooh, lovely lady
I'd like to show you around
Ooh, pretty baby
There's so much to love in stumptown
Take in the scenery, take in the greenery, know what I meanery
City of the bridges, well fed pigeons
Little bit later we could make some bad decisions

Yes you're sweeter than marionberry pie, my my my

So sweet, so sweet
Track Name: Real Thang
Hey, tell me it's the Real Thang.
