Hi guys, I,ve been gone for a little while. In the meantime I've worked on this Blues kind of tune that I wrote in honor the great Aretha Franklin. Had a hard time finding a suitable solo for it but I think I finally got it. Hope you all enjoy it.
Aretha Blues

Hi cubanpete, I admired the overall vibe on this. The different elements really glue well together and I really dug the chord progression. I Love the horns too, they sound very warm. Keep it up!

Mike, you not only got it you nailed it. Super use of the horns. Are these RTs or a MIDI thing?

Excellent mix and backing tracks.

What a tune, Mike! This song is huge - I love that groove, and the horns sections are top notch. A fantastic tribute. The bluesy vibe that glues it all together is great too.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

Mike, great to hear you again! Loved that blues with a little New Orleans sound in there! All elements work together so well! Great tribute! And you didn't slack up on the ending! Loved that little bit o' class there to wind it up!
