Practice loop: Nexus

Practice loop in 4/4, sampled from Nexus by Gateway— a trio of John Abercrombie, Dave Holland, and Jack Dejohnette, that put out a couple of records in the 70s, and again in the 90s. This is from an album that should be in everyone's collection: Gateway II. Tempo is 166 bpm.

This is about bright 8th notes in what is now called an ECM feel. Do your Stick Control stuff with this loop, or your Dahlgren & Fine whatnot, or, hell, any of the Funk Control pages or the Reed interpretations from which they are derived.

Video background art is by Sol Lewitt.
