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.


Misha,

Thank you for your listen and kind words, the strings are an electric piano.

You just keep knockin' out the hits.

Hey David,

Just an outstanding song, one of your best IMHO.

Is that you playing guitar on the soundcloud pic?



Hey Dave,

thanks,

that's me and a bandmate around 1980 or 81

Nice work. The chorus rise from the verse is climactic. Another great set of lyrics.

A classic Kenny tune! Really soul felt with a beautiful chorus! Loved the electric piano! I liked the fact that you left the breath sounds in between the lines, it really adds to the emotional vibe to the tune! Nice work Kenny!! Thanks, Torrey

WOW, Kenny!

Everything that should be said has ready been said, as far as I can tell. I'll pile on to all those accolades. If awards were given for cutting edge emotion, this would be an easy winner. Your vocal delivery is all a listener could hope for. And the band ... well, they got their stuff together and soared. Simply astounding. This is eloquent as only you could do it.

Alan

Kenny, I loved the rawness of this song. Not many singers/writers can carry this kind of raw emotion off as well as you do with the subtle builds and valleys moving the listeners heart right along with you.

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/.
