Hi friends, it's been five months since my last tune was posted!

Like its predecessors on my channel, Tune 4 is built around a sax riff I came up with while practicing.

This is my fourth production with PG Music software.

All tracks are RealTracks with the exception of my flute and tenor sax tracks. Thanks to Neil Swainson, Lewis Nash, Miles Black, Oliver Gannon, and Mike Moreno for their amazing playing.

The Basic style was ZZJazz.

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 Chorus/Echo on the solo guitar, and a bit of chorus on the horn section to fatten it up. I used two outside plugins- EasyQ parametric equalizer, and Sanford Delay on the solo sax track.

As always, thanks very much for listening and enjoy! If you dig it, please leave a like, and consider following me.

Hi Warren Keller,
This song is well developed, the weaving of instruments, yet retaining a wrapped theme is awesome. Great production, enjoyed this song very much!

Very tidy jazz with a bit of energy against the swing which is cool.

Welcome back, Warren smile I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It has a fantastic swing to it, and selection of RealTracks perfectly compliment each other. The whole thing flows really nicely, and the transitions sound natural.

Great work, and thanks for sharing !

Warren, real nice track...I especially liked the simple riff motif and how it was doubled by the flutes, then (I think), used again in the offsetting measures when you changed to the 4th chord. It's a great example of how using a very simple, but catchy riff as the basis for a jazz combo track like this really lets all the other elements, like the solo's, the basic swing, of it really shine. And you used one of the 'old' jazz styles, further showing that you really don't need anything more elaborate for a track like this. Thanks, and looking forward to more!

I always have been a fan of the flute and sax. You ability to play them as well as you do and being able to blend them so well with RTs is very impressive!
