Hi again folks,

Tune-2 was built around a little sax riff I came up with while practicing.

This is my second production with PG Music software.

All tracks are RealTracks with the exception of my 4 tenor sax tracks.

The Basic style was Jazz Fred.

Other than BIAB/RB, Audacity was used for a dash of post-mix editing (crop, Amplify, bass boost for Soundcloud).

The 10-band EQ and PG Reverb were used on most tracks, with a dash of Chorus/Echo on the saxes and guitars.

Thanks very much again for listening!

I loved this track. The production is very professional to my ears. A great example of what Realtracks are capable of.

The sax riff is very cool.
You seem to have been very subtle with the chorus effect - it's so easy to overdo and sound 80s - but you pulled it off.

Thanks folks! Rayc, I just use that as a fattener rather than an effect. Much appreciated!

Hi Warren,

Good to "meet" you. I'm a big fan of just about all kinds of Jazz. Loved this one. I always enjoy a solid bass line and this one is perfectly ion the pocket. And the organ lead riff was terrific. The sax is stellar.

Sounds great! Nice arrangement and presentation. Best to you.

Alan

Excellent swing feel, could listen to this for a very long time.

Knockout sax work with the harmony parts shining right through.

Smooth, cool, enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this tune a lot, Warren! I think it's pretty fantastic, and I think the starts-and-stops work really well in this particular piece.

Keep up the great work.
