I like this a lot! Your playing is smooth, the tone is perfect for the genre, and you did a super job on the backing track! Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Great track! Your playing is spot-on for this style. REminded me of an old-timer, Johnny Smith.
I like how you switched the drum set to a "sticks" version at about 2.30..then introduced a stop..drum solo section also excellent.
BIAB/RT's jazz rhythm section is awesome!
Only thing I would change is to add a gentle cymbal at the end to coincide with your final chord.
Thank you for posting this!

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate all your feedback. For me it is a joy to know that my music can be interesting for some of you.
Thanks Tano for your suggestion for the end of the song, is just what I needed!

Giving us the oppurtunity Band in a box to play with such great musicians who have recorded the RealTracks makes us better musicians and facilitates extraordinarily our creative process with his inspirational wisdom.

Loved it! Good use of the drum solo parts and I also liked the chord progression. Agree with the light crash cymbal touch at the end.

Hi Rafa,

Very impressive. To my ears, your song and its arrangement were magnificent, your playing was spectacular and the whole presentation was incredibly engaging from start to end.

Really excellent work,
Noel

Rafa,

So cool, kicked back relaxed, with great playing and mix.
Your playing really fits the song.

The mix work about 4:08 adds a lot extra to your work.

Even tho smooth and cool, still exciting music.

Thanks for sharing!
