Oh man
I think some of the best music ever came from this era. You just have no Idea how happy this makes me to hear this. First of all you did an incredible job on this.....I wish I could come close to this kind of harmony. I hope you're using the pitch plug, because if not it's even more incredible.
Harmony is one of my favorite and most important things in music. I was telling someone the other night in chat how much I love Begin The Beguine...another great melody and chords.
I hate to keep on but I love the chords to this so much and also the passing harmony on darling where you are and silence of my lonely room......wish I had the ear to explain it musically but I think you know what I mean.

anyhow thanks so much

gorgeous
I love the harmonies, upbeat arrangement, and your incredibly crisp and natural American-sounding pronounciation of the English words! Are you sure you weren't raised in New England? :-)
ttfn,

A wild, sparkling ride
What a great ride. Cole's laughing with - not at - you on this. Great interpretation, nice little rhythm "bum-pa-bums" in there! really airy inversion choices, and just sparkling pitch. The chorus effects, the "cymbal" splashes, it's all done with great. studied humor. Your mic-ig and mixing sound great. I can't say enough, so I won't.

Night and Day
I agree, Cole Porter's music is wonderful. So, too is this acapella arrangement. Lots of details and nuances. What exactly is your range Andreas? I'm hearing some very high tenor notes, and low bass notes as well? Wonderful!

Enjoyed
This is a joy to listen to, a contrast so much in what i"ve heard so much at MJ. Not that there isn't great music. But this is a treasure to hear.

Unusual to hear such great harmonization. Love the articulation, the tonality, texture.

I played this tune a bunch with my father on sax. So it brings back fond memories.
Way. Great Ending as well.

A great find!

Great
Wow... great vocals... I like it... Good to hear such a-cappella songs... It's amazing to hear, when you sing in rhythms.... What a great piece of music... Sounds so good....

Thanks for sharing your songs....

Really...
...very nice arrangement and the vocal performance is wonderful. Your phrasing is very nice and there's a sense that you have excellent control over everything that's happening.

The producer in me is curious to know which voices are naturally yours and which are from Melodyne. I'm assuming that the highest ones are, unless you spent some very uncomfortable time with some rubber bands while you were recording this ;-). You chose some nice harmonies and the whole thing sounds very rich.
