I heard "Dark River Spirit" from the Anahola River on Kauai, while I was eating lunch at the mouth of the river. It was so strong I carried it home with me. Later that same day, March 4, 2011, I worked up a rhythm section with drums and three basses (Upright Bass, Bass Viol, Synth Bass). Then the next day (March 5) I laid three improvised live guitar tracks over this foundation.  The picture shows the Anahola River in flood season, when the River Spirit is in his full strength. You can really hear him singing in the solo for bass viol at 3:00.
