Vic,
An engaging, well written character study with perfect musical style choice for the subject.
The mandolin and whole band works well; good vocal as well.
I enjoyed everything about this.

We enjoyed it four years ago at that "other place" and, thanks, for the
opportunity to enjoy it again.

"Always one step down from heaven
with both feet jammed agains't the door to hell "

Great line!

As history nuts we were drawn in immediately.

You are excellent at drawing the imagery for story songs and this is no exception.

Nice production also. Like the mandolin.

Hi J & B.
Unfortunately the "other place" seems to have drifted to another place.
Thanks for the generous comment.

Hello Vircan,

The life of an adventurer is well transcribed in the lyrics. The understated arrangement is effective and your voice lends itself wonderfully to the context. Pleasing to the ear.

Kindly regard

Very well done!! Some good storytelling, and your voice works really well for this style! A very good arrangement with the basic rhythm and intermingling acoustic lead! Great stuff!! Take care. Greg

Hello Vic,

I'm glad Misha pushed you to post this song here and on SoundCloud.
For a moment I thought I heard his influence in your singing, but that fades after one or two lines.
You have a very cool voice for songs -and lyrics- like these. I've enjoyed it!

Thanks,

Hans

Thanks Greg.
I think it's the 6th historical song I've done.
No. 7 is in the making.
I may run out of history.

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/.
