I’m almost done with this box set. One more Candy solo after this, and one more Najee solo.
Anna Stesia is a classic slow funk jam in (concert) C. Candy’s solo is short and sweet – only about 8 bars, with some fills after that, but she’s got some nice licks in there. Nothing too hard here, and just one high note to worry about. In bar 12, she’s trilling between E and G. I wasn’t sure if that was clear from the notation. The minor third trill is classic blues/funk/R&B/pop staple – it always works!
Listening back to my recording, my timing was pretty off in the first few bars. I should have done a few more takes!
