10 - the bass part is extracted from a four track master which I had Patrick O'Hearn overdub on a medium tempo guitar solo track in 4/4. The noted chosen were more or less specified during the overdub session, and so it was not completely an improvised "bass solo". The bass track was peeled off the master and transferred to one track of another studio 24 track master for a slow song in 11/4. The result of this experimental re-synchronization (the same technique was used on the Zoot Allures album in "Friendly Little Finger") is the piece you are listening to. All of the sensitive, interesting interplay between the bass and drums never actually happened… also note, the guitar solo section of the song "Yo' Mama" on side four was done the same way.
