Cool track! Good to hear a new song from you (maybe I am wrong but I think it is quite a while since you posted here?)

I like the style of music and your choices of RealTracks. Well done!

Will

Nice flow. Musically interesting. I imagine a private detective lurking through the empty streets at night as I listened to this.

Mike,

This is such an inspiring listen!

You've picked and a terrific ensemble of Realtracks and your arrangement is really well done. You've definitely got the knack for this kind of jazz.... very impressive work! I tip my hat to you... this was a wonderful listen.

All the best,
