Powering partnerships for independent musicians.
Written by guitarist Dickey Betts , the song is a tribute to Gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt , in that it was designed to be played using only two fingers on the left hand. Betts wrote the majority of "Jessica" at the band's farm in Juliette , Georgia. He named it after his daughter, Jessica Betts, who was an infant when it was released. She had bounced along to the song's rhythm, and Betts attempted to capture her attitude with its melody. He invited fellow guitarist Les Dudek over to collaborate on it, and Dudek performed the bridge. The arrangement was crafted prior to recording, which took place at Capricorn Sound Studios in Macon , Georgia. Issued as a single following the immensely successful " Ramblin' Man ", "Jessica" did not receive the same level of chart success. Despite this, it became a standard in rotations for classic rock radio stations in the following decades. Reviews have been widely positive.
Like the earlier Instrumental Asylum the record offered four free-wheeling and light-hearted improvisatory arrangements of current pop songs, The Troggs ' " Wild Thing " and " With a Girl like You " and Georgie Fame 's " Sunny " and " Getaway ". Manfred Mann and Mike Hugg continued their practice, established at their earliest sessions, of dubbing jazzy solos, on Hammond organ and vibraphone respectively, over their own rhythm section tracks, with Mann on piano and Hugg on drums, in this case with their former double bassist Dave Richmond. Their current electric bass player, Klaus Voorman appeared on only recorder. Tom McGuinness played guitar. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Manfred Mann.

Instrumental uses machine learning to discover emerging independent talent for the music and entertainment industry. The most exciting new artists on the planet are not part of the traditional label system. They are self-distributing their music and marketing themselves on social media. They have no label and often no management. Yet they are already the fastest growing sector of the industry in terms of value and driving high levels of engagement amongst young music fans across the globe.
