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

Avant garde either works for us or it doesn't -- not a lot of middle ground and, man,
this one was cool. A cool dude indeed smile

Sittin' in a small club listening to this quartet would be fabulous!

Well done and love the crowd ambiance.

Hi Mike,

Enjoyed this track.

What is the instrument in the left hand speaker with a "tonk" sound?

Best Regards
Nigel

Sorry guys for the late response. Thank you all for the comments, I was otherwise busy and been away from the forum for a little bit.
Nigel, the "tonk" sound is an almost muted vibes. Instead of a piano I chose a vibe patch for this.
Thanks again

Mike B.

Hi Mike B.,

Well, allow us to enjoy it... maybe it is "free" jazz... but it works really well in this case. And you have made a good mix!

Thanks a lot for sharing!
Will

Avant garde jazz from the cool era of jazz.

Mike you nailed it.

Jazz at its best!

PS - I'll take a martini, stirred not shaken.

Hi Cubanpete,

Very nice arrangement on a composition rich in variations. The sax and flute playing are great. You managed to bring us into your musical universe. I appreciated.

Kindly regard

Ok, that last one was my attempt at humor. Every time I see a new post from Cubanpete I smile, knowing that when I push the play button I'm in for a musical treat. I remember back in the 70s hearing a free-jazz album called "The Ear Of The Behearer" and instantly knew my ears were not right for it. This, on the other hand, keeps me smiling. Thanks, Mike.
