Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Oh yeah...what a sweet style mashup.

We liked everything about it and for us it's hard to go wrong by throwing in gypsy jazz fiddle.

Classy and cool!

Oh yeah. Sweet syncho-perc in the stereo, a great progression and some very good instrumental turns. I liked this a lot.

Whew! This is what happens when you put BIAB in the hands of a pro! Great way to combo 2 movin’ Latin styles, excellent selection and arranging of the RT and RD and Loop components. Totally enjoyable listen, expertly done. Thanks Mike for adding some Latin love to my morning coffee!

"Cuban Pete"...

I think that you served-up to your listeners the equivalent of a tasty musical "gumbo" by throwing that Latin gypsy jazz violin solo on top of all that percolatin' bass and percussion! It was a really hot, and inspired thing to do, sir. It's as though Stephane Grappelli stumbled into a recording studio where the Buena Vista Social Club were jammin'! And with that electric guitar solo stepping out on it's own, I think you could give your song a subtitle, like, "Son of Bossa Nova" cool

I love mixing musical genres, and I think "Havana Son" is an exciting, flavorful, and original blend. I'm gonna come back here and listen to it again, but first I'm gonna move some furniture around so I can bust a few moves to the music!

Double dee-lighted,

LOREN (a.k.a. "bluage)

Really, really good!! The fiddle sounds more like a melody than a solo which is just what the tune needs. The mix and composition are fantastic!!! Take care. Greg
