Untitled new piece, called “New Arabic” on set list, to be recorded for the next LN album. Recorded live at the HoB in Houston on 2010-07-31.
You can download a 320kbps mp3 file here.
Please do not post or link these files anywhere. The song hasn’t been recorded/released yet. I don’t want to be paranoid about this, but I will search for embedded IDs of these files and if I find them in the wild I will shut down this Journal without further notice. I am not suggesting any one of you would do such a thing… and this notice is likely unnecessary, but…

Note the big three half-tone step between the Eb and the F#. Nice scale, very evocative. Here is the first music sketch using that scale, recorded at the dining table with my iPhone and the original Blue Mikey:
