Description
I wrote this song a while back for my wife. In the first version of this song I did a simple bass lead on top of the bed to to fill up song. I later ask my friend Ed if he could grace this tune with his Sax work. He sent me this version back using an EWI(electric woodwind instrument). His tenor sax was in the shop for repairs. He told me he would send me another version using that sax but really think this one sound great. I know all of us here are busy with our lives. I've been sitting on this one for a while. So I'll take what I can get plus I'm really impressed with the stuff he did in this recording. So here it is for a you MacJammers.

Thank You again ED!!!!

whew
the emotion and expression from the EWI is fabulous. It was a great track to begin with but this moves it into the 11 category. Charlene must be estatic. Great job guys, Love the changes, mix and total overall vibe. SGU!

Cool
I love the EWI. Wonderful lightness. It can go infinitely high, which makes it walk above the clouds. Very nice track.

Very heart warming
For some reason I want to hear lyrics to this. I think all the instruments involved compliment each other well. The little "robotic" synth you have going adds a lot of flavor as well.

As always its is a pleasure to listen to anything you put out sir.

Got my sax back (Finally)!
... after several months and almost $1200 later, I got my sax back from the overhaul. I should have something (hopefully) this week with some horn in it. I'll most likely leave some parts of the EWI tracks in. :)

Pretty much, the lead and background bells were done on the Akai EWI 4000, the string parts were done on an Roland RD-700. It's really kind of sad that I have this super nice keyboard and can't play it worth a damn. :D

Hectorius, this is a beautful tune, and I fell in love with it when I heard it. I hope Charlene loves it.

Everyone, thanks for the really nice comments. It's very appreciated. :)

You guys with the ability....
...to play those jazz changes...

Although, every time I say that to someone, they point out that they did all their magic with just 'regular chords'.... My buddy Mark/ibstrat is a great one for that...

A very sweet melody line in the EWI synth tones... and a very romantic vibe... With just that merest hint of funk in the drums...

Thanks for making sure I caught it...
