Hi, Mike.

The "Texas" sax fits in there really nicely!

I like the mix - nice stereo spread with the instruments.

Well put together bit of music. smile

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

A good vehicle for the sax- energetic and smooth.
Sounds great on headphones.

Mike you should have fun more often! Loved those vibes! Super groove and stereo separation. That sax wasn't really killing, loved it.

Super use of RTs and a super song.

Sounds like it was as much fun to make as it is to listen to, Mike. You always create a band I could listen to every night, and then provide the coolest changes for them to show off. Love your choice of instrumentation, and the way you bring them in.

Cheers

'cubanpete'...

Damn, man, your composition, 'With Your Permission' was so brief and ended so suddenly that I thought a commercial break was coming! laugh

Great combination of Real Tracks. This instrumental is as steamy and passionate as a stormy tropical summer night, with particular credit bestowed on all the rhythmic percussion going on in the Real Drums track. The fast sixteenths tempo in the drum set reminded me of some of Pat Methany's more upbeat music. The vibes and electric piano provided all the romantic sweetness and ambient shimmer and glow you could ask for to contrast the primal musical drive of the piece. You pulled off a great stunt using that 'Texas Blues Rock' alto sax soloist! I listened to the demo in BIAB. It had a 2 & 4 beat that did not suggest it would work in your bossa/funk/smooth jazz composition, but it came off sounding like it was making love to somebody, ha, ha laugh !!!

Hot, hot, hot!

Thank you guys, I was surprised myself how well the sax solo worked. I like to experiment, if not sounds good I don't even post it here.
Cheers

Hi Mike,

I love bossanovas. That was a stroke of genius using that TexasBluesRock realtrack... very, very cool. It fits perfectly. As always, I love the chords you use to lead the listener through your song. Wonderful arranging.

This was a nicely satisfying journey.

Regards,
Noel

Hi Noel, thanks for your comments. Not sure about the stroke of genius but sure was a stroke of luck. I tried different soloists and thought that this one fitted pretty good despite the difference in styles.Thanks again
