7. Willie The Pimp -   Lumpy 

Lumpy is a moniker for musician Bryan Highhill.  He was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota, studied music at the University of Redlands in California, and is now living in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  On his website you can hear an eclectic collection of music that he's recorded including many originals and covers. Lumpy's premiere full-length album was un-officially and independently released December of '09 and is available at .  More information can be found there as well as samples of music from the album.

I felt that Willie The Pimp would be a great song to manipulate from the original.  The main riff that gets repeated throughout the song sounded like it would be cool to swing and slow down, which is where I got the idea to make it a reggae song.  There is also an element of acting in the original vocals, which I thought would be fun to emulate.  The lengthy guitar solo has been replaced with a 3 piece horn section, followed by a trumpet then flugelhorn solo.

Instruments include: trumpet, flugelhorn, drums, guitar, piano, organ, bells, guiro, tamborine, and bike horn.  All performed by Lumpy.
