Smooth is the word indeed!

The vocals are like silk. Very nice.

The lyric and arrangement are perfect for the
laid back feel.

We enjoyed it!

J&B

PS: And those vocals deserve, IMHO, to come up a bit in
the mix. You have a fine voice... no reason not to put it
out front!

Thanks for the kind words. I have noticed that I'm a bit of a stranger with my type of music in these threads but I'm glad you liked it :-)

Love it! Shades of Luther Vandross there. I agree ... the voice needs to be MUCH more "up" in the mix. But otherwise ... brilliant! Well done!

It's a lovely song - chords, melody & lyrics.
The kick drum is a little odd though..prominent and more batter than thud.
Smooth as satay sauce with just a few chunks of wah for texture.

Well done. Smooth sounds. Yes, vocals need some EQ. They are too good to be in background. But a nice song all around. Good use of BIAB.

Hello Henry,

Nice smooth sound and great vocal!
It's little nostalgic. I feel the 1980's Motown sound somewhere in this tune.
The chord progression Cmaj7-Bm7-Fmaj9-F#m7b5/B7 in the middle of the song is tricky and wonderful.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi
