This is a chromatic harmonica instrumental. I played a Hohner CX12 and used the bossafred RealStyle for the backing band. It's short, 2:26.

TM,

Really well done.

The BIAB jazz tracks background are excellent (they do that SO well). Nicely mixed.

Super job on the Chromatic.
That's a lot more work than a "regular" harp. I know - I've had one for years (decades) - and have never enjoyed playing it.

Nice!

Smooth... and the "voice" of your harp tells an appropriately sad but tuneful story.
Hats off to you for getting to such a high level with the chromatic ( like Floyd I gave up long ago).
Cool and good.

Robert

If I had a drink and a lady near by, I'd put down the drink and dance with the lady.
Well done.

Hey, man, I dig the title and your performance on that mouth organ is memorable, romantic, and as sensuous as a warm, sweet breath in your ear. The backing tracks were the ideal accompaniment for the melody, too. It's bossa nova on a lush, elegant, and nostalgic tip.

Nice job on the chromatic! I also have one here someplace, very difficult instrument compared to a regular harp.

Good melody and tone, enjoyed.

Very nice. Nice harmonica blowing. Floating down a slow moving river on a lazy southern summer afternoon. Good use of the band too.

Love the sound of a well played harp. Cool backtrack as well.

Hello TuneMonger,

It's a real pleasure this harmonica played on a Biab realtrack. You used and personalized it to perfection.

Kindly regard

Most excellent -- can't say we've heard a harmonica based Bossa before smile

Great concept and, man, that melodic playing nailed a great jazz groove with the band.

Most enjoyable!

BTW, Janice's daddy played a chromatic harp.

A very nice harmonica tone - reminds me of the player who did the interludes on The Goon Show.

Hi TuneMonger,

I was fantasizing what words one could sing on this song instead of this harmonica. I came to the conclusion I prefer your harmonica.
The song creates a nice ambiance, something like CaptainMoto wrote...
There is only oneserious problem I have to mention here; it is too short!

Have a nice day,
Hans

I really liked this piece, let me count the ways - Bossa, smooth and jazzy, really sweet textured harmonica, rich and nuanced backing track, and performed with style and verve. Yep - top marks on this one!

Great stuff - I could listen to this all day.

Hi Bob,

This is superb!

I love that chromatic harmonic sound. You've got the knack! My dad used to play harmonica and listening to you took me back years to my childhood.

Your melody is spectacular. You've captured the essence of bossanova very skillfully. My only suggestion is that if you ever re-visit this song, please make it longer! The beautiful music was over with way too soon.

I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
Noel
