That is an excellent production. Just top notch from beginning to end arrangement wise. The strings and horns are used quite tastefully and your friends has a very nice voice too. I will be listening to this a few more times for sure. Thank you for sharing it here.

Shigeki,

Welcome to the showcase forum.

Top notch mix. The vox are superbly done and recorded.

Yup.... sounds like a christmas song ....even though the words were not in a language I could understand (except the last 2)

As others have said... nice use of the real tracks.

Dear Shigeki Adachi

There are some great productions here in this Showcase. Really great productions.

But every so often something outstanding comes along. And yours is certainly no exception to that rule. This is one of the best I've heard in awhile.

The string arrangements are superb.

Yoko's vocals are unsurpassed.

Congratulations - please post more

Hi Shigeki,

welcome to the forum.
Great first post. A very tasteful
arrangement. And wow, your singer
is great.
Just a little difficult to think of Christmas with
over 30 °C outside.
Enjoyed the listen.

こんにちは Shigeki Adachi,

Welcome to the forum smile

Wow! The sound is absolutely beautiful, your friend's singing is spectacular and your composition is magnificent. I particularly liked the bridge and the modulations. Everything is extremely well put together.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening.

Hello, Noel

Thank you very much for your warm comment to my composition.
I visited your Soundcloud page and enjoyed listening.
Your songs also have nice modulations, and I found a little bit French feelings in your music as your name.
I love and often listen to French music like Michel Legrand, Charles Aznavour, Jacque Brel and so on.

Best wishes,
Shigeki Adachi

Welcome to the forum!

WOW your first post is a showstopper, very professionally played with the perfect backing tracks, a fantastic vocal and the perfect mix. IMHO this is already a Christmas Classic!

You should start pushing this song! I think that it has fantastic value and should be heard on the radio. Maybe you should start making a Christmas CD!

There is a new wine for seniors. It's made from an anti-diuretic hybrid grape and reduces the number of trips to the bathroom. It's called Pino More!
