thnx!
Thanks for the comment; much appreciated. My fear is that it's a little under-produced; and I think a female vocal would be better.

your voice reminds me of early elton john. very, very cool. i love the laid back groove. I'd call it indie pop more than jazz but that's just me. great tune, thanks for the DL.

piano players and lawyers...
I married into that. :-) Very nice emotive voice, and I love the halting piano playing here, very catchy. The piano work nearer the end almost has a Supertramp sound (love them.)

Cool stuff, welcome to Macjams!
ttfn,

NOT under produced
A song is a song is a song.
Very nice simple presentation of what you wrote. Keep up the good work. Kudos.

wow, thanks all
(And I am a supertramp and elton john fan (used to do a bunch of elton john covers). Wasn't deliberately trying to imitate it here though.)

what's an ARM?
thanks! I did play the piano. Also, not to be an idiot, but what's an ARM? It sounds worth doing.

"Mortgage" ... ARM...
A.R.M. = Adjustable Rate Mortgage

A bit of wordplay always gets a smirk from me, nice :)

Simple song
Nice.

The bass doubles the piano left hand. That sounds clumsy. Either make more independent, or leave it out. I don't think this song needs a bass.
