Hello, Alan

Very nice film music!
Trumpet solo and piano solo are both really pleasant.
The chord progressions are also very nice.
Particularly I like where it goes from Cm to Db and returns to Cm.
Where it goes from Cm to Abmaj 7 via II-V(Bbm7 - Eb7).
And how to use G7(#9).
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hi Kenny,

the intent was for it to very slightly eerie with a dose of sadness, yet relaxing. I guess I got close to my goal! Woo Hoo! And yeah, the midi piano was a very pleasant surprise. I had to massage it a bit in Audacity but it ended up sounding pretty decent.

And I know what you mean about riding the guitar gain. I'm playing through an Ibanez Les Paul knock-off with really got pickups. It'll crank out some chicken pickin' and stout rock, but when it comes to Smooth jazz and Smooth RnB, I have to really back off to a point where any less fades it out but any moreoverrides everything. it's a tough spot to find sometimes.

Thanks again for the great comments. Much appreciated.

Alan

Hey David!

Sleep? I've heard of the concept. I also hear some folks do it and enjoy it!.

Actually, I do not sleep a lot - perhaps 5 hours a day with the exception I almost always stay up all night one or two nights per week. I've done that for many years. I typically got to bed about 5:00 am and get up between 10:00 and 11:00.

When I was undergoing the chemo, I was too ragged out to do much of anything physical, so BIAB and I became frequent buddies. During the eight-month ordeal, I composed over 60 instrumentals. My left hand was almost completely numb, so guitar pickin' was out of the question. I still have 45 - 50 instrumentals I've not posted and some new ones waiting in the wings.

I like to put a little time between posts so as to not hog the board. I wait at least 3 or 4 days between new posts ... or ... until the last posted one falls off the front page.

Wishing you and yours the very best. Di says "Hi David!".

Alan

Hi Shigeki,

It's always a pleasure to hear from you. I'm glad you enjoyed the song. I've always liked the sound, as an example, of the the C minor followed by the Db maj 7th. It's usually not expected but works well because it'mildly abrupt, and at the same time, casual. The Cm to Amaj7 is a subtle change but brings a new element to the melody that enhances the richness of the melodic flow (in my opinion). I tend to use flatted 9ths more than sharp 9ths but in this case, the sharp 9th was a good fit.

I look forward to the insight you offer in each of your reviews. Thank you! Wishing you the very best.

Alan

Super cool song Alan.

I could picture a smoky jazz club with a few patrons sitting at their tables, tapping their feet to the beat while some people dance. Yep this is film music.

Two thumbs up.

PS - great piano sound!

Alan,

This is incredibly vibrant. It's the kind of music that gets leaning back in my chair, closing my eyes and just enjoying. You've done an excellent job creating this. It's sophisticated, driven and oozes with musical talent!

Loved it!

Best wishes to you and both smile
Noel

Hey Mario!

Thanks so much. I had a movie going in my mind as I wrote this. Nicole Kidman was making some guy's night with a sweet, sultry dance. Most of the lighting was alcohol signage and a light haze of smoke caressed the neon beams. The other guys were at their tables, some ignoring their dates/wives, wishing and having tantalizing thoughts. Well, something like that.

Thanks again, my friend.

Alan

Hi Greg,

Thanks so much. And yeah, I could hardly believe what I ran across with these tracks. The piano took a little coaxing but finally got to where I wanted it. Wishing you well.

Hi Noel,

As always, your comments are always among the ones I give more than a second look. The word "vibrant" hadn't come to mind, but I think it's very appropriate as i was trying very hard to set a mood - smoky, late night, sexy and a sensual static in the air.

I appreciate your kindness.

And we both wish you the very best.

Alan & Di

Hi Tyler,

Thanks for dropping in and taking a listen - much appreciated. You folks at PG Music are the best!

I'm delighted you enjoyed it. And I was surprised how nicely the piano turned out. i worked it over pretty good in Audacity but wasn't expecting this level of sound from it. Glad you enjoyed! Thanks again for the very nice comments.

Wishing you and everyone at PG Music the very best,

Alan

Hi Torrey,

Thanks so much for those very kind words! I think the piano and trumpet are contrasted pretty nicely - totally different, yet mutually complementary. I'm delighted it came across that way to you. thanks again for the very nice comments. Best to you.
