The story behind this track is quite funny. First, the main theme was supposed to be played by my guitar but at some point I passed it to a tenor saxophone. From that moment on the tune kind of "wrote itself", part by part was coming out naturally and without usual "99% of perspiration". Just pure "inspiration" which is quite rare in my composing endeavours.
So I've thought that, just like in real life, it's much better not to force or push anything if it doesn't come naturally, then probably it's not the right time or right direction. This is a little out of nowadays spirit when everyone is supposed to shape "the best version of oneself" and to work constantly and persistently to achieve one's goals. I mean that it's okay to be sometimes a little politically incorrect, a little lazy and self-confident and not necessarily be hard on yourself to get what you want.
Have a listen and check by yourself if you like the tune:)
