And that's a good thing.

Great job!!

Thanks David. Sting has always been one of my heroes. That is a very flattering comparison! Your new one is GREAT!!! Take care. Greg

An absolutely GORGEOUS write. I could quote every line in the song, but let the 4 above suffice... GORGEOUS!!!

The mix on this might be your best ever. Everything in the right place. The drums sound like they were recorded in a "just right live room". The bass is warm and punchy at the same time - buttery. The piano, sweet and smokey. Super trumpet!!

Your vocal is amazing.

This is top-notch, professional from every angle.

WOW. WOW. WOW!!

Thanks SO much my friend!! It is tempting to print this review and put it on my studio wall for inspiration. Means so much to me! Take care. Greg

As floyd said so eloquently: WOW!

The vocals are perfect, the arrangement is exquisite, lyrics stellar and I love the trumpet solo.


Thanks so much David for the kind words! Much appreciated! I noticed recently that we are virtually neighbors. Should have a beer some time. Take care. Greg

Greg,

This truly is stunning. You've definitely raised the forum's singer/songwriter bar immeasurably with this creation and its presentation.

All the best,
Noel

What a noirish, elegantly arranged production this is! The mood is deliciously cool and sultry. Your lonely, wounded vocal teases the after-midnight poetry out of the lyrics like a magician performing amongst the shadows of his secrets.

I wish I was in an audience so you could watch me get to my feet and applaud you along with the other patrons as you take bow, after bow, after bow!

Magnificent.

LOREN


WOW, what a wonderful review! Thanks so much Loren. Means a lot to me! Take care. Greg

Man of man, only if we could write half as good as this song!

As always with your songs all the accolades have quickly been exhausted by the time we comment smile

Your vocals are always standout and this is over the top standout. And did you ever put together a "band" to support it! The piano and trumpet players sound like folks you've worked with for years and honed it all to perfection.

Just wonderful!

THanks for the ultra kind words guys!! You write some damn good stuff yourselves! Take care. Greg

So many good things about this from the smooth jazz to the melody to the lyrics to the production. It's all top bar stuff.
