Leaving Manhattan (final mix)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Well, technically we didn't leave Manhattan, just the Upper West Side, but the new neighborhood feels quite different... miss the easy acces to Central Park dearly, so the tune is a bit on a sad side...

Collaboration @ kompoz.com:
Ilya Gerasimenko (tenor sax, EWI), Pat Felitti (piano), Ian Pellow (bass), Raul R. (drums, percussion)

Love the flute/piano call and response section, Latin percussion, harmonies. Great ideas and playing all around. Totally tasty pro track.

Wonderful moments...
Hi Ilya. Some wonderful moments in this. The playing is tight and professional. Love the piano and bass work and your sax is smoky smooth. The mix is pro quality. My only comment is that the shaker was a bit insistent to my ear and some of the percussion seemed just a little bit low in the mix. Just some thoughts. Liked this a lot. Regards, Peter.

thanks for the input
I might let it sit there for a while and then rebalance some parts... it needs to simmer on a back burner a bit. will check on the shaker :)

Smooth
Nice easy groove. I always dig the latin samba feel you bring to a piece. Classic progression. Hope the title doesn't mean you're leaving the NYC area?

Thank you!
No, we are not leaving... :) We just stopped pretending to be rich and moved out of Upper West Side; now we have twice the space for half the price and a view on Yankee Stadium across Harlem River...

Talent is dripping all over the solos...
