Default Peter's joke from an interview :-)

Peter's joke from an interview (very interesting) for Polish Jazz Forum magazine from 1996.
Peter said about his composition Oh Well:
First I wrote the second atmospheric and acoustic Part Two, and then Part One which was a hit.
I'm not sure if I wanted to be commercially successful but I think- Oh Well Part One is one of the first RAP songs. (laugh)

Greetings from Poland

what do you mean by "rap to instrumental call and response"?

Default call and response

If you notice ,the only words sung during the music are "Oh Well".
the pattern is musical phrase, pause Lyric incantation, musical refrain, instrumental, pause , lyric incantation, musical refrain, instrumental finalle. That the sections repeat so predictably, it is as if it is a call and response.


one interpretation anyway
. and then there is the "atmospheric" instrumental Oh Well
