THANKS | Nick Vermilye

Nick Vermilye played tenor saxophone on the record. And man he’s great and all that. But also, I asked him to play a sax solo in Uncle. We thought it might be a good idea.
Oh no.
To his credit, he played it beautifully, and he humored me. But after listening back to this song about driving on I-75 to see a great uncle in hospice, we decided that even the most tasteful sax solo maybe didn’t fit the thematic material of the song.
But damn it was a good solo that no one will ever hear. I think I still have the audio file in the stems. We’ll see if our club remix of Uncle ever surfaces. If it does, you’ll know who’s playing the sax.
