Kenny,

Very very good! Love the melody, the "how tough are you" refrain and the band...oh, and that "blueoooo" thing you do.

Another great tune, liked the walkdown on the word blue. Liked the whole thing, in fact.

Kenny,

Love the tune, love the lyrics—sets just the right mood, and sung with a lot of emotion and heart. Could possibly dial back the vocal in the mix a bit, or maybe take off a shade of reverb . . . but it’s sounding pretty darn good as is. Really strong offering, Kenny. I think it’s one of my favorites from you (which is saying a lot giving how many terrific tunes I’ve heard from you).

Hope all is good with you!

Deej

Kenny,
not sure how this escaped me. I usually pay attention to your releases.
Nice laid back rock ballad. Usage of strings is excellent. I like your vocal chain FX or the things you used on it. Got this early Pink Floyd vocal tone to it. This is an nice addition to your heavier tunes! Enjoyed my listen.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Your interpretation of the heartaching lyrics is magical, so much feeling in your voice and I like that breathing is not cut out. Superb band, simplicity just works here.

Great song Kenny. Really love the strings, and the overall production. Very warm. A truly rich production.

You just keep knockin' out the hits.

Hi Kenny,

Man, this has to be one of your best vocals yet! Heartfelt and just dripping with emotion.

Just an outstanding song, one of your best IMHO.

Is that you playing guitar on the soundcloud pic?

Excellent lyrics, well sung.

The chorus did exactly what it needed to. Sounded great the first time, and then again after the instrumental.

To me, this song hits that "sweet spot" of sounding vaguely familiar without being derivative.


David,

Thanks so much for dropping by for a listen,

I appreciate the very kind words and I appreciate that you'd tell me

if you disagreed or didn't like something you heard!

The distortion on the vocal isn't a liability but "I can't go on.." does get too close to unpleasant in headphones.
A lovely arrangement and sentiment.


Thanks Ray,

sorry that the vocals didn't quite make it for you

it's all a learning experience

Thanks Tang,

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
