I like it! Really beautiful and laid-back. Yes, I'd chat up a lady with this music playing, for sure :-) That vibraphone ... icing on the cake. Excellent job! :-)

Perfect jazz lounge music. That is one of my favorite genres and you really nailed it.

Great work

bluage, as Mario said, I love this genre and you nailed it! The tune flows exquisitely and you did a super job bringing different instruments in and out on the solos! Enjoyed it! Thanks, Torrey

After the opening 2 bars my wife would look at me and I knew it was time to dance. HAHAHA How weird was that. As I typed that first sentence, Barb walked by the open studio door. She stopped and gave me that look. After the passed several weeks of caring for her parents, it was the perfect moment. Thank you guys. So I had to spin in again (with headphones) to hear all the wonderful ingredients you guys wrote for that magic moment. Just perfect guys.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Anytime any user's forum member tells me that he/she was inspired by the music to get up and dance, has made my day. 99% of the reason why I compose music is for that reason. Thank you for responding to the piece in such a joyful way.

Nice, flows well and things have their own spot in the mix.
The FX on the "vibes" seem to muddy things a little bit as the overtones carry into the next note - a bit like playing a busy melody on a piano with the sustain pedal leaving everything to decay naturally.
Very nice piece.


Cheers

Bluage & Icelander

Sweet tune! Excellent job on vibraphone. Good, clear mix. Listens very well. A bit short smile
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Hello, 'rayc'...

The vibes track was recorded by my collaborator, 'Icelander'. I don't know if he applied any FX to it.

Regardless, I'm pleased that the piece appealed to you. Thank you very much for taking the time to listen to it.

Hello, 'Rustyspoon#'...

Yes, I agree that 'Icelander' performed the vibes track so well. It's what caused me to answer his call for a collaborator.

You're right, it's a short piece. Wetted your appetite for more, perhaps?

Thank you for auditioning the piece and also for your comment.

I agree with you about the sax. P.J. Perry's performance sounded like he improvised it especially for our composition.

Thanks for hearing it!
