An old school jazzy tune all with real tracks: The combo is Jazz Swing with electric guitar, and the soloist is track 442. Let me know what you think. MERRY XMAS!!

Nice mix, I liked it. Take Me To The Ocean sounds good too but I'm not a believer in evolution so we differ there. That said the three songs I listened to were all well made.

Greg, another great number. Nice and smooth, the rhythm guitar works really nicely, and both the lyrics and your delivery are superb. Not too busy, just right. The solos just fitted in perfectly, like inserting the last pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. Nice.
Thanks for sharing
Trevor

This is a wonderful song. Lyrics, arrangement, mix, performance - all top-shelf, top class jazz.

Fantastic music!

Nice Greg....and as a bass fiddle player I even more enjoyed it. Very nice mellow (in the positive sense of the word) groove. Fine vocal delivery and mix.
