Hello! Here's my latest. I went here for a little different kind of tune which I consider to be Funk (maybe?)
Hope you all like it.

Again Mike you have taken a number of RTs and perfectly blended them into a masterpiece.

I wouldn't call this funk. I would call if fusion or jazz. Whatever you call it it is great music.

Nicely done Pete.
I thought the drum intro was a nice touch.
Good choice of band. Really well done.

Def. not funk but I danceable jazz flavour with French Gypsies fiddling.
The droning synth part on the right needs a little more character I suspect as it has a mosquito buzz happening.
Nice work.

Hi Mike ...

I could have said it better than Mario already has. I definitely agree with the Jazz Fusion thought. Nice arrangement! Loved the percussions on the intro. Perhaps the fiddle is just a wee bit loud. But, that doesn't detract from the really sweet listen you gave us!

Best to you. Be safe ...

Alan

Thank you guys for the listen and comments, Agreed, def not funk, right after I posted it I realize my mistake. Fusion for sure
I'm glad you all liked it in spite of an inaccurate description.

Best regards

Mike B.

Mike, the word that comes to mind is engaging.

From that drum intro to the last note our listening never
strayed ... and that was three times through.

Excellent and as I and others say it is an amazing
display of BiaB and talent.

Super!

J&B

Mike,
That woke me up! Whatever the style, this is a great grooving example of blending MIDI personality with RT quality.
I love the fiddle and the energy of this.
