Description
A very moody, mellow song that similar to "Another Long Day" always stirs up a reaction in me; I hope it does the same for you. I play basses and keys, along with a couple of loops. You will hear my P Bass throughout, with an added Jazz Bass solo on top.

Very cool
Man you play killer bass! I have a P bass but I want a jazz bass so bad! This just makes my yearning worse.

Great work man!

Way Cool
There's nothing cooler than an electric piano. And I love the variety of electric piano sounds in this. Nice tasteful bass solo.

Thanks very much, I wrote and recorded this in two sittings, one was at 3am, so that is where the melancholy, sleepy vibe comes from. Thanks again!

This is well, lovely.
The mood is heavy but not oppressive, more like when you must make a decision on something that is very important. Very fine. :)

Actually,
listening to your music is cathartic. It at once, puts you at peace and encourages you to go on. The rain sounds are perfect. :)

Nice sound stage
This song has a nice sound stage.
My initial listen is that the drums need a different treatment but then that Is MY taste.
Good mellow bass sound and nice solo.

Thanks for checking it out. I agree on the drum comment and I am looking into a better drum selection. Drums on Demand possibly. Thanks!

Feeling
Love the subtle fusion undertones. Reminds me a bit of the electro Jazz outfit "Four80East" but this song is more earthy. Love the bass tones and the solo is tasty. Downloaded, thanks!

hi chris
just came to this because sam dixon sent it to me with a rough vocal idea on it....and i said to him....wow, who's playing bass on this! ha....and it turned out to be master-bass-guru-chris flynn.
i totally LOVE this chris....and the bass is STELLAR. i only wish i'd found it before sam! this is definitely one of the coolest tracks i've come across on this site....it deserves more publicity.

Love the bass sounds and the lines you play. The keyboards have that moody feel that you were aiming for. Excellent! Glad I finally caught up with it.

Thanks my friend, for checking this oldie but goodie. This song really means a lot to me, although I have to say that I think it needs a remix. Been awhile since I listened to it. Thanks again!
