All my best to you,

Thanks for listening Deej. Your kind words are appreciated.
Cheers,

That's a pretty powerful arrangement.

Personally, I prefer the simpler parts.

Nicely done.

Thanks so much for listening Janne. Your encouraging words made my day.

Brilliantly composed.

Wow, thank you Mr Storm laugh
I really appreciate those comments. I should frame them.
In Australia we have a saying when we get something worthwhile: "This is going straight to the pool room".
Cheers,
Mike

Mike, I almost missed this one but I'm glad that I didn't. Everything already has been said so all I can add is "this is the best instrumental I have heard on these forums"! Excellent chops and Kontakt sounds.

Loved it.

There are a host of accolades that could be said about this fine arrangement and mix.

For us suffice it to say, "contemplative. emotive and lovely."

Mario thank you so much - high praise indeed from the high priest of instrumentals.
This means a lot to me, coming from a veteran of the User Showcase Forum.
Cheers and stay well,
Mike
