Story

When Eric Demmer and Skip Nallia were writing this tune, Eric kept hearing his daughter's name in the melody, so he named it "Danielle".

Story

Eric was the saxman for Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown.  He and Skip Nallia wrote this tune and named it after one of Gate's favorite foods: grape jelly.  Gate liked the groove so much that he added it to his album, "Back to Bogalusa".  When they performed at the Montreaux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, Carlos Santana jammed with the band and clapped his hands over his head right after Eric's screaming solo.  You can enjoy the full version on the DVD.
