Number six in the Balcony Sessions. Actually it’s more like number two but who wants to be confused? Recorded the 28th of December 2012 on the balcony. Listening back to the mix it must have been a mellow day. 12 AOR tracks with a couple of gems here and there. The Jean-Luc Ponty track is brilliant but you have to be in the mood for this stuff. I think my friend Mattias will like it.

Movin’ came out in 1975 in their self titled album Brass Construction and was one of their biggest hits. It eventually became an anthem e.g. on Paradise Garage.
