Mike,

I really enjoyed this - as Marty said the weaving in and out of the horns ( and other instruments) is so good and gives a live feel, as if the soloists are listening to each other.

Mike,

Really enjoyed this super smooth tune. A seamless blend of RTs to create a very cool sonic landscape.
Also agree with Robert...
