Really sweet
Beautiful song guys. I have to agree the lyrics are just great, but a great delivery in the vocals and super instrumentation to go along. Thanks for this, a perfect Sunday afternoon song.

terrific
I have been listening to this tune over and over. Jonx your voiice is
incredibly radio freindly. What I mean by that is, it's the knid of voice I
would think so many people would love to hear given the chance.

The fits in quite nicely as well. Way to go Macboy and of course the nice
guitar fingerpicking.

A very fine song here!

As I listen to this...
Everything to me seems perfectly fit for this song. Jonx's voice has that
quality that sucks you in. The understated drums catch my ear and
both acoustics work well off of each other. Was the small noise at end
of track left in intentionally? As to say "It's a wrap, now let go enjoy".

perfect
The drums and the discreet bass together with the nice acoustics makes a perfect environment for this little nice song. The vox is great.
Great performances from both of you:)

I'll have to come back to get a copy when that download button gets back...

Wow, gentlemen...
This falls into my "good as it gets" category.

Every bit of it. This is well written, well sung, well arranged, well played
and well recorded. I like the little bit of vocal and guitar trades toward
the end. This whole thing sounds and feels great.

I eagerly await the download option's return.

jonx, I am flat out envious of your voice.

Ed

On a limb
Very nice sound. So glad to see jonx collaborating with MJers, especially
when McBoy gets to play the mockingbird (one of my favorite birds, who
never seems to repeat a phrase, the only bird I know that can sing jazz).
Jonx, you are special. Love to sit on a limb and listen to you sing.

doesn't get better than this
I've been away from MJ for a while. I'm so glad I stopped in and caught
this. Absolutely beautiful. From lyrics to performance, to all the
production details a wonderful work, exactly what I'd expect from the two
of you in collaboration. It touches the soul. I really can't thing of any
nitpick to give you guys on this.

doesn't get better than this
Oh, I was so taken by the song itself I forgot to ask why this is under "ambient".
Not that it lacks any ambience but it doesn't fit into that genre by any measure I
know of. Whatever, doesn't really matter; I love it.

Jonx is a definite gift.
Really like the easy going feel here. Nice job on the guitar mcboy, there's just enough to compliment the vocals. Nothing overwhelming the other just a relaxed feel.

grew up with mockingbird song
Jonx is in his typical amazing form in songwriting and singing, so
smooth, wished the lyrics were posted to read along with though...
more fun to read and listen and re-read. The guitar background was
delightfully sweetly played, similarly soft and breezy. There was one
spot near the very beginning where Jonx stops singing, then hums a
couple notes, then starts singing again... the singing was centered,
then the hum was far-right, then singing back to center... that seemed
a little strange. Later in the song, the humming is on the right, but is
harmonizing, so its not so obvious. I'd pull that first hum back to
center. Really nice collaboration you two!
ttfn,
Drakonis

This is awesome! I love the vocal. Reminds me a lot of Nick Drake.
There's a reason this is the # 1 song on MacJams right now. Thanks for
sharing.

laine said 4128 days ago (April 29th, 2006)
this song is just
so clean.....clear beautiful vocals and just right there with you the guitar
never overloading and again beautifully played complimenting your
vocals. Makes me want to be a wee kid and just roll down a hill of green
grass without a care in the world you can just about feel the air little crisp
but the sun is shining, this song feels and talks and if this is the first time
you have both got together then you both make this trip sound effortless.
Skillful impressive beautiful. Wow tonight I have just had the pleasure of
being able to be involved with such incredible talent and feel very
privledge finding you guys thankyou for sharing kind regards laine*****

Very pretty collab
You boys work very well together and it's always good to hear special lyrics. McBoy dances around in the background, just enough to create a presence but not so much that it overwhelms. Tasteful and pretty.

Looks like Jazz to me
I love the mellow sound of this track. The lyrics carry the tune and the singer carries the lyrics. And your guitar parts have a definite Jazz feel to them.

But why split hairs. This is excellent whether you call it Acoustic Rock or Jazz.

Great song and collaboration McBoy, I love it.
