Cool?
It's damn cold here!
This song has a warming effect though!

Nice.

Being from Chicago -- the title immediately caught my attention -- the music reminder me of the grea piano bars that used to be in the city. You did a really nice job on this. I am not a Jazz fan but I listened to this song 2x's. Nice job.

Glad to hear you found the title was appropriate. At one point it was going to be Cool Night in Clacton-On-Sea.

Your electric guitar performance takes the lead in this instrumental composition like William Holden took Kim Novak's hand as they danced to the tune of 'Moonglow' in the melodramatic 1955 film, Picnic. Your playing style is spare, yet sweet, which leaves plenty of room for the Real Track accompaniments to shine. Also, it was nice to hear the gradual reduction in tempo at the outro as it added a touch of musical drama to the ending. All in all, it's tuneful, mellow listening experience that warms the heart even as it cools the night in Chicago... smile

Nice!

Good mix, good arrangement. Laid back and mellow playing.

I liked the melody, and your guitar playing! Tasteful use of bends. laugh

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

Thanks for the positive comments, Bluage. Been strumming and playing fingerstyle on acoustics for years but only went 'electric' in May last year. Lead guitar is still very new to me and quite a challenge!

Excellent!

Sounds as though you and that sax guy have been playing
together for a while smile Really nice band sound indeed.

Well arranged and mixed also.

Enjoyed it!

Soothing and pleasant. Masterful guitar work. You sound like you're part of the band.

Thanks, E.S. "Sounding like part of the band" is something I aspire to (but don't always manage to pull it off!).

Nicely restrained guitar playing. The sax is perfect. Nicely arranged with an easy to follow recurring melody. I liked it, Tom

Thanks, Tommyad. Your comment, "...easy to follow recurring melody" reminds me why I've never been a big fan of jazz, especially what was called "modern jazz" back in the 50s and 60s. While it was cleverly executed, it had a meandering (and often annoying) "where the hell it this going?" feel to it. Complicated rhythms don't float my boat either. If I can't whistle the tune or tap my foot to it I find it difficult to relate to.

Tasty guitar chops! Sweeeet tone on the axe of yours! Very nice arrangement and using that sax RT was an excellent move.

I really enjoyed this!
