Gianfranco,

This is quality music. I love it. The trombone and trumpet are such great choices to sit on top of the stride piano. The mix sounds excellent.

Regards,
Noel

P.S. I also had a listen to your computer singing "Imagine" on Youtube. That's pretty incredible!

Gianfranco, thanks for posting this. I really enjoyed this piece, and very different from the other postings.

Thissong transported me to a smoky bar sceene, with the idea that some intrigue was happening.

I think I would have liked it even better if the the trombone were brought up a little more in the mix, but otherwise, excellent.

Thank you to all for yours nice words and for yours beautiful feedback, i'd like to write more and more , but from Italy this forum is often inacessible.
What a pity, i hope it's a temporary problem.

Nice smooth laid back touch going there. Piano bar of old. I can smell the smoke.

Ciao, Gianfranco

Very relaxing and pleasant!
As Noel said, I also think the trombone and trumpet are such great choices to sit on top of the stride piano.
Very enjoyable listen.

Best Regards.

P.S.
I also had a listen to your computer singing "I will always love you" on Youtube. That's fine!
By the way, I also often make vocaloid songs.
Following link is my newest post of vocaloid song.

I have listened your Vocaloid song with Miku.
As i wrote in Soundcloud, it's a beautiful work under all
points of view, beautiful composition, excellent sound, Miku's voice tuning is perfect.
I am without words!
