Hi John ...

First, welcome to the Users Forum. Good to have you!

Loved it! Henry already has said what I was thinking, he just said it better than I would have. The chord progression is sweet and cohesive. I enjoyed the light delay on the sax ... nice choice!

This is a great entry tune ... nice work! Wishing you the best ...

John—really fine track, and I agree with comments from my forum friends. I encourage you to continue to work and post...each member’s work helps and encourages the others. For myself, listening to your contribution gave me some ideas about style and RT resources that I might use in the future—there is just so much in the BIAB treasury that you discover gems by tapping into the creative efforts of artists like you. Great work!

Welcome to the forum, John. What an outstanding tune to open with. Love the feel, and you chose the perfect band. Well crafted, man. That alto solo is killer.


Enjoy whatever happens!

This is a bluesy, funky, laid-back and sexy piece of what is commonly labeled as 'smooth jazz' music-making that has a kind of free-form feel about it as it basically features instrumental solos against a poppin' rhythm section. It feels like as though it could go on forever...
