Description
This is a re-do of a jazzy version of We Three Kings that I originally did three years ago. I really like it and wanted to share it with everyone during this season. The lead guitar is an Aria Archtop 175 and rhythm guitar is and Ibanez archtop with juiced-up GB drums and upright bass.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING Everyone! We all have a lot to be thankful for!

Hello
my dear friend, Feter! You are always very gracious in your feedback. I love the sound of a 175. If you can find one of the old Aria copies (Aria 175DS) from the 1970s (which is what I played the lead with here), they are less expensive and many of them sound as good or better than the Gibsons. In fact, Gibson sued Aria because they were such a close copy and forced Aria to stop making them. Mine has old Guild pickups in it and I love the mellow sound of it. Let me know how you do in your search.

Sweet
Jazz as it should be! The GB upright bass sounds like he is on the stage with the rest.
Clean mix too . . .

Thank YOU.
Clean, transparent, smooth, relaxed, focused - perfectly enjoyable. And surprisingly organic blend of recording and midi. Very well done on all levels. Happy Thanksgiving to you too.

Perfect
for the season. It's really cool to hear a traditional carol performed in a new way...Now, send it over to John Stebbe for a few jazz piano licks and you'll be totally ensconced in the genre. Thanks for this wonderful rendition.
At about 2:28 that solo guitar riff comes in and is played beautifully. I wish you had elongated the track by about 30 or 40 more seconds so that that guitar could take center stage. Nevertheless, this was very nice, indeed.
Peace.

Thank you
for your kind remarks, Paul. I do love trio and quartet settings--each instrument gets a chance to speak clearly without and muddiness.

warms up the hearth...
Some of the oldies get stale from ceaseless lack of originality, and this tune got that way for me... so it is a great pleasure to hear it revitalized in such a refreshing and skillful way by you, well done! This is upbeat and fun. Well played and recorded... sweet!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Magic fingers
Love what you've done here. You make it sound so easy, which for the listener is great - we just sit back and take all the vibes in. Top flight playing - wow.

Be well,
Doug
