This is great!

You have the perfect voice for slow jazz vocals. Your mix is spot on.

I could see this being a big hit as I know a number of my friends are or were in this situation so I'm sure there are many more.

Loved it!

Hi Jinx,

Very nice easy listening smile What realtracks did you use to create this? I'd like to try them out!

Regards,
Noel

What a classy production!! You guys wrote the song from what I gather? Great lyrics, great vocal, great everything. This is a total gem! Take care. Greg

Thanks for the feedback guys.

To answer some questions.
This was all BIAB, the tracks used are:
732 - Bass
742 - Piano
937 - Guitar

This was one of those occasions when I thought the pianist must 'know the song'

It was mixed in Pro Tools 10.

The singer is a local Vancouver girl Clare Brett.

The song was inspired by a friend losing her husband.

It was released on a 24-track Xmas CD, Mistletoe Memories, 2 years ago.

That singer you got there is pure GOLD!

Would have been nice to have a bit of a solo in this, but as the singer is so good and the song had so much 'to say', as it were, that's easy to overlook.
A great first entry into this forum... nay, forget 'first', a great entry full stop! cool

Btw, there are four Realtrack instruments in this piece besides drums, not just the three you listed smile
