Description
I posted a modern jazz drum track for folks to grab up and play against. A few people did just that, including my pal Billy Playle. So I did the drums and Billy did everything else. Here's what he wrote to me about his composition.

"Hello Fred. Here's my composition based on the drums you posted. It's called "Abaporu". It's the name given to a famous painting by the Brazilian artist Tarsila do Amaral. I hope you like it.
Billy."

Guess what the painting is? :-) Enjoy!

Great track gentlemen! I love the authentic latin big band sound. Great arrangement. Excellent piano solo. That fretless bass stands out beautifully. Freddy always amazes!

Crystal clear tones
This is totally attention-grabbing. Such clarity of instrumental sound, rich layers and textures, and - as others have said - sophisticated & mature in vibe. I like that you let the final note resonate without premature chopping! Quality!!

a man that eats people
Love that bass ... and the drums sound real good. Billy does a great job of
arranging and playing. I respect his talent for arranging horns . Great latin feel to it. Pro stuff ... and a good mix.
Cheers
Stan

Latin heat and jazzy interplay. Horns are to die for. Keys are refreshing and great swagger in the drums, Freddy.
