Marty, thanx for listening and those very nice comments.

Thanx for those very kind words. I greatly appreciate them.

The nylon string stands out . It does get a tiny bit strident higher up but, generally, is a lovely sound well captured.
You do amazing things with your controller.
Well done.

You sound comfortable to me, Mario wink

Great groove, and I really like the horn parts via the wind controller.

But my favorite part is the nylon string guitar part, right in the pocket and super tasteful.

Nice!

Howdy Mario....

Well....I like this one and I'd say you are in your comfort zone.
A relaxing, well put together composition which I'd listen to again.
I agree with all other comments. smile

I've threatened to write one in this style too which I many research for my next project.

Well done.

Have a great day....

Thanx Ray. The nylon string guitar is a very cheap one that is starting to have a warped neck. Also there is no truss rod so this one will be in the garbage can in a couple of years, sooner if I replace it.

Dave thanx so much for listening and commenting. Every once in a while I hit a winning guitar part so thanx for that. It means a lot coming from an excellent guitarist like yourself.

Like I said I was a little out of my comfort zone as my wedding band did play a couple of bossa novas, but I had never do one from scratch before. Well I mean from scratch using BiaB ingredients.

Thanx for the nice comments.

Mario,
The nylon guitar stars in your sultry sky here; those horns are sooo smooth too.
You are in complete wind control mode.
Well done!

You are right up there when it comes to creating music that makes one feel good and happy - and that's what it's all about, right? Really, really beautiful track - it takes so much talent and skill to make it sound that easy, and that's exactly what you do. Thank you - I needed this, and you're 100% reliable, every time. Bravo.

Thanx so much James for this wonderful posting. I appreciate these great remarks but to be truthful it ain't easy to do.

I'm glad you liked this.

Nice. It sounds like the music that would have played during the opening credits of a 60s movie.

Mario, you're the boss of the bossa after this one. Nice tune and changes.
Your arrangement and choice of instruments show a good understanding of the genre.
Cheers,
Mike

Thanx Mike, but I'm no boss of the bossa nova. A novice yes, this was my first solo attempt at it, my band played a couple of them, but a boss, no way.
