I Know The Way, Instrumental with Violins and Cellos Opening



This mix opens with violins and cellos, then Joe Sample’s keys weave through Al McKay’s tasty guitar licks. Recorded in 1972 at Devonshire Studios in Hollywood, California, my partners and I: Ron Brown, Bobby W Boyer, and William S Davidson put together an amazing ensemble of Los Angeles’ musical talent. Ron Brown did the lion’s share of the work from the inside, he was a working, studio, Fender Bassman, sometimes working three, three-hour gigs in a single day. Ron hired first-rate keyboardist, Joe Sample (of ‘Jazz’ Crusaders) fame. They worked many gigs together. Also from the Crusaders, Wilton Felder, Wayne Henderson, and possibly, Larry Carlton (uncertainty because of lost records.)*Al McKay, from The 103rd Street Watts Band (partly managed by the disgraced, comedian Bill Cosby)to Earth, Wind & Fire, to The Al McKay All Stars. *FYI Ron Brown, Bobby Boyer and I did some recordings with Al McKay in the 60s. Also, the amazing, first-call, Los Angeles guitarist/musician, Dean Parks was there playing an acoustic, Martin guitar. Altogether there were around two-dozen players: rhythm-section, strings, horns, keys etc. etc. etc. Glenn Pace was the principal engineer.

Review is from the author of the book: WHAT IT WAS, Growing Up When The Music Mattered, by James Pagliasotti.
“William Carbone is a classic American troubadour whose songs can evoke pain and passion, like My So Called Life, a blues sung to the accompaniment of his soulful guitar work, which comes from the dark night of the soul, where others, like his sophisticated composition I Know the Way with the great pianist Joe Sample and an all-star lineup, bring a sense of joy and exhilaration. He covers a lot of ground with the range of his material, but his work consistently takes a hard, clean cut at telling the tale and playing the melodies of this life we’re living. Do yourself a favor and listen to a talent at work.” Purchase James’ book here: www.amazon.com/What-Was-Growing-…&format=4&depth=1
