Saxophone synth that is. At first I had thought it was an actual saxophone in the beginning few notes. A sound that would fool a normal listener. I'll never warm up to syth saxes (mostly because it puts me out of a job...).
Other than that, it was a fine masterpiece.
Lol. I just hope it's pleasant to listen to anyways.
Nice little melody
I'd like to hear this in a big band, sounds like it could happen. Is this you're original composition? If it is, and you don't mind, I'd be willing to attempt to arrange it for a big band.
But still, quite well done. I've got to admit, of all the smooth jazz out there, this was in the top ten.
You made it soothing without leaving it bland.It has wonderfull swells of intensity strong enough to draw me back in as I start to drift away.
And it never floated around one single idea for too long (like so many tend to do...), which was a pleasure to hear.
Once again, while I'm an old school bop and cool cat myself, this is more than worthy of recieving a 10.
Hi Gizmo, great sax player, thanks for reviewing and listening my work!
Nice funkadelic happenings!
Very funky! That guitar was perfect, although the bass seemed to mellow for the guitar... I'd suggest a slap bass, like the one in the Seinfeild (I don't know if I spelled tha right) song... Still kick ass awesome!
Thanks! That is a slap bass in the recording, but I definitely hear what you mean, it has no "BOWOWOW" type of slap to it. Might be that I just kept its part simpler than the guitar. Nevertheless, thanks for your review!
This... Is... Amazing!
I don't have words to describe ths talent... You have a gift. A gift few people posses. It reminds me of Gershwin for an odd reason, and I don't know it. But it has that feeling. This is so going on my IPOD, if you don't mind?
Thanks!! I'm so happy to see you like my song! I put a lot of work into it and seeing people actually enjoy it as music is a fulfilling feeling :). Now I"m going to listen to your stuff!
That's not ska...
Or at least, not any that I've ever heard... I don't know what to call it, just not ska. Ska usually has some sort of hornsection, and some guitars... Don't man... Still... Better that some crap I've heard.
Good enough to be jazz...
I like the violin in jazz... It's so commonly passed over in the jazz world, but there have been a few greats... I can't recall their names at the moment, but they were there. And it did have a funky beat, but it had that swing to it. Pretty jazz IMHO.
Well it isn't jazz...
Maybe some fusion, but definatly not straight jazz. That was more funk than jazz. If you want it to be jazz, give it more of swing... And one more thing, keep that bass and cymbal off 1 and 3... It'll swing better that way.
Best arrangment of Mario for a big band.
I'd have to say, you know what you're doing. Even if it is a layered keyboard, which I find perfectly acceptable... Escpecially when good big bands are hard to come across. I might only suggest one thing, and it isn't that big. The triple swung feel on the drums became monotanous after awhile. To get that real hip sound, throw some straight quater notes in there (a tip our jazz director tells our drummer every day...).
And for future reference to everyone, a big band usually consists of anywhere from three to five saxes, two to five trumpets, and zero to four trombones.
Another jive piece...
If good music equalled money, you'd be set for life. Seriously, do you make money for this? Cause you could. I would so pay to hear you at a concert. I bet any pro musician would kill to have you at their side.
