I liked the stereo separation, that really gave it dimension.

Great feel!! This is so relaxing. Mix is crystal clear. I would have put a little more verb to add some space, particularly on the drums. Enjoyed this a lot!! Take care. Greg

A good listen, John. Nice clear, crisp mix. The drums were very "present". Nice solos.
