Strings indeed!
You are so blessed to play with such great players! Excellent composition,
and I feel like the strings are such a great addition to this groove,
something unique to my ear. Love the break! Coulda used more flute, but
what's there is very tasty!

That flute
is really great. Good bass player as well. This is a tight groove, very
well played by everyone. Indeed, an original idea, to put strings in
these things.
Best

wow
damn...this is GREAT tatin!!!! I love latin music...i worked for a long
while with a cabinet maker from Puerto rico, who played all kinds of
latin music for me. It is some of the most joyful and sexy music ever.
Neftalie would LOVE this, i can picture him in my mind doing his
dance....

Oh sure, it's LATIN, all right...
...but there is some kind of global passion in this thing...

Those strings have a real Django/Stefan Grappelli gypsy wildness at
times, as do some of the other instruments...

Right from that PERFECT bass line, all the way on through, it's got
everything...The beat's right on, the playing has spirit and fire... AND, you
do a nice job recording these pieces of yours...

Global passion
Thats about right . A passion for music and a thirst to create, thats what keeps
me going. Yeah the spirit of grappelli and django lives! Thanks for appreciating
the music!

Perfect bassline alright!
Using live strings and brass in this context is something I haven't
heard before, and it took me a little time to get into it (like about 2
seconds!). Excellent playing all round on a very classy piece of music.
Is it just me, or is the music getting better here at MJ??
Thanks for this Tatin!

Bassline
Thats Jerry "wahwah" Rivera a veteren of hundreds of recordings since he was a
teenager. There is a style of music called "Charanga" that uses strings and flute
and brass . It was a source of inspiration. I 'm truly happy that you enjoyed this
music!

nice swing
usually not a huge fan of orchestral ensembles for jazz music because the spontaneity and a certain degree of improvisation seem to get diluted or lost in the larger ensembles...i guess i prefer the intimacy and the interaction of the typical jazz trio or quartet arrangements...cool grooves on the bass, flute, piano, and percussion...i guess i like free jazz with no strings attached, except for the ones on the guitar and bass of course

Prrrrdt! Ai!ahhhhh! & ummm dash to the party
Woah this moves, beautiful composition. I love the break to calm, then picked back up with the kicker pace. Great accentuation on the brass.


Tequila!

Party time now! Thanks!

Awesome
Very tight group. Great work on the flute and percussions. Your flute
really stands out. Everyone on this track is incredible. I don't often
download jazz but I certainly downloaded this.

Manic
An amazing track which gallops along at an incredible pace - brilliantly performed by all - that string line is quite unusual in this style of music (gives it a bit of a Michael Nyman feel). Hot bass playing and a gorgeous flute line to boot.

Thanks for posting

More than the Sum of its Parts
Wonderful integration of the strings, percussion and brass/winds within a flashy Latin context. I also hear the inspiration of Herbie Mann and Jean-Luc Ponty, much to my pleasure. Thank you for a refreshing lift of spirit.

Sooo big
Thanks for commenting on my tune giving me a real treat in finding your amazing music. This is one of the most amazing compositions I've heard. The classic latin drive with the bass, piano and percussion with a layer of fat jazz chording and topped with a generous helping of punctuating strings. Mmmm gooood.

things from strings
wow...what a cool collaboration. you manage to create something that has everything going on....but at the same time it all has it's own space. what you do with that flute at 2.45 is nothing short of genius. excellent atmosphere on that slow section and then we're right back in for the finale with everything bouncing and bopping. stupendous...apart from the major resolve at the end.
