A nice mix and pretty song. The sax works very well and the piano is excellent.

Playful piano, bluesy sax and a very good band; I enjoyed the meanderings and interplay of soloists.

We love a baritone sax and this is good use of that RT. Blues and jazz
do have a LOT of common ground as they sprang from the same well.

Well composed and mixed too!

Enjoyed the listens.

It worked - from the laid-back intro to the build at the end. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hello Cubanpete,

Beautiful sax game. The piano is well spatialized, the brass are excellent. Very relaxing intrumental composition creating a pleasant atmosphere. It's a very good composition.

Best regard
