This is an instrumental Contemporary Jazz song. It's just me dreaming about being on a warm sandy beach with a gentle ocean breeze blowing on my face. Hopefully it makes someone happy

Oh yes...that is a happy-making piece. Lovely tone and a great melodic line. Loved the happy, busy perc and the short horn solos.

This is great Torrey! Love the groove on this and the production is outstanding!

The crowd noise is also very cool. That Godin sounds tremendous!

Torrey,
Very relaxing tune. Wonderful arrangement and playing! You got a fun photo to accommodate this tune too smile
I enjoyed it much!

P.S. Just curious, are you familiar with the band Acoustic Alchemy?

Thank you for sharing!

Torrey ...

This is terrific, engaging composition. Loved the hint of scat with the lead guitar on the chorus. The horns are nice, too!

I absolutely loved the tone on your guitar! So perfect for the mood of the song. The crowd noise behind the sax before the last guitar lead was a real nice touch! And there's no need to mention the great percussions as they speak quite well for themselves. Beyond excellent, my fgriend. What a real treat ....

Alan

Hi Torrey,

This is Excellent!

Lovely lines on the guitar, and great tone too. Also loved the percussion track you did and the background vocals.

Great track, just what I needed to listen to for my first song of the day smile

Torrey,

This is excellent. The mix is outstanding. Everything sits well.

What a nice melody (and repeating theme). Nice guitar work.

Seems like everyone is finding "new and different" drum tracks in BIAB these days. Nice!

Very enjoyable listen!

Very well done smile Love the groove on this, and thought the progressions were awesome. A very interesting choice for percussion, but it really helped distinguish it and give it a modern edge. It's a really fun tune that I can imagine would fill a dancefloor in minutes flat.

Thanks for sharing!

Very atmospheric, literally and figuratively...can smell the sea breeze!

Wonderful melodic playing and all your contributions + BiaB make for a fascinating band.

The nylon is so cool.

The fretless bass is a great choice!

And the mix sounds right in the pocket on our monitors.

Superb...all the way around.

Torrey,

This is about as good as it gets! Seriously strong arrangement here. Not only can I not think of anything I don't like about this one, I'm having a hard time deciding what I like the most about it. The tempo is perfect (so important), the groove is right there, the effects are stunning, the scat with the lead is perfect. I could go on and on.

VERY well done, my friend!

Steve
