Man, that is a wonderful production.
I love the "desination:" idea. Great
groove that is perfect for the lyric.
And a fine vocal.

Everything works for me. Kudos!

Noel, thanks for the kind words. Much appreciated!!

Herb, unfortunately I can't play guitar that well-there is a RT just meant for using solo but I combined it with some samba combo. It was the solo guitar that inspired the song and got me going on the idea. Thanks for your support.

Steve, thanks so much for the kind words. I really enjoy hearing your stuff!

Take care all. Greg

David, thanks for the nice comments. I did start the song kind of slowly but I dug the feel of that solo guitar. Always enjoy your stuff. Some great lyrics, and pretty music. Love to hear more conventional vocals as the songs are very cool!

Trev, thanks for the support. Yeah, I think the band took a break and went to the bar for drinks in the middle of the song. I think it was outside of the visual window when I burned to disc. Thanks again for the listen!

Hi Greg, first time I hear one of your songs, and I just love your sound. Gosh I forgot about Michael Franks all together, I used to listen to him all the time, being "Eggplant" one of my favorites. Very well produced and nice vocals.

Mike B.

I'm late to the party but again I am glad that I came. I agree with everything that has been said, but I will add one thing. I love jazz lounge music and you did that genre justice. I would buy a CD of this genre if you every produce one.
