Nice little piece.
I'd suggest to keep the piano playing during the guitar solos or put something in (like a rhythm guitar) to keep up the harmonies. Only bass is a little thin for me.

spacedog,

Thanks for compliments. The older jazz styles tend to contribute to
the feeling of walk, or strut.

boehm,

I also did think it was missing something there, but wanted to
feature the nice guitar.

Thin would be a good description.

Will wait a bit for other comments, and try to re-do...

Thank you.

Very good old style jazz.

Personally I liked the guitar, bass and drum breaks. I think the problem is volume. You might try drastically lowering the piano volume during the sax parts. That may eliminate the extreme volume differences between the parts. Just my thoughts.

Made several modifications.

First Guenther,

I added RealTracks in song: ~938:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm JazzFreddie Sw 110
to play with the Lead guitar.

Mario,

I cut the piano level as you suggested.

Also cut couple of gotchas in instrument changes.

Same link in original post has changes.

Thanks folks!

Enjoyable Jazz piece. Love the guitar solo and the horns don't sound too shabby either. Nice arrangement, which puts you in a good mood.

Nice job!

Cheers,
Mike

Tano,

I've been working with DS al Coda to create more elaborate
endings. This song was created some time ago. Also I actually liked the ending, bit
different. Thinking of live band type ending. Sorry didn't sit well with you.

Thanks for compliments.

jptjptjpt,

Glad you like the drums, and guitar. Thru listening to
you folks music, it has helped me a great deal in realizing
the part drums take. RT's on the guitar bounced against the
unique chords. Took a little while to settle on that version.

Thank you.

Noel,

The style is very old, chord progression very old, instrument selected
were old versions, I'm very OLD....
The style with the chords helped make the sound.

Thanks for compliments.

MikeK,

Glad you enjoyed the song. So far to avoid being banned from forums, have
not created songs with vocals. RT's are simply a joy to work with. Helps
us all create good sounds.

Mentioned vocals above due to fact been creating only instrumentals.
I've concentrated on creating easy and happy listening music(Mostly). Appreciate
your "Good mood" comment.

Again thanks.
