I listened with cans...you might consider dropping the lead piano and guitar a little bit. There's interesting supporting music happening with the bass and percussion too, but it seemed overshadowed to me?

Hey, as always it's a superb composition.

Thanks for listening guys, Dani, yes you're right about the piano styles, it might remind you of any of the two masters, you always so kind. Olemon, like they say,"two heads think better than one", well I guess that applies also to four ears (plus your cans might be better that mine), so I follow your advise and lower the volume of the piano and the guitar so the background can happen a little better. Thanks for the suggestions, that's why this forum is so great.
Thanks again

Mike B.

Awesome jazz number, Mike! Your experience is shining through big time!

Did you play any part of the song, or is it all real tracks?

Again, thank you all for your comments. Pat, some time ago I would've said; yes, I'm playing the drums, but unfortunately, I don't do it anymore, I used to play drums and latin percussion back in the days, but now I'm just content on putting together this songs the best I can and having fun in the mean time.

Regards

Mike B.
