Description
A weekend jazzy tune I put together based on a funky latin feel. I played with some strings, horns , keys and synth sounds and my fender jazz master. I'm really focusing on trying to get a good clear mix here ... so I would say this is an experiment in mixing. I did the painting in acrylic on plywood ... looking out the window from my past studio.

almost thought it was gonna be a disco song in the beginning, it sounded so authentically so. but then the jazz seeps in and takes it to another level. love this blend, and quite a fine mix.

Hey Sammy
Fooled you! ... it's not a disco tune. But does start that way. The guitar rhythm definitely sets it up. Thanks for the mix comment. It means a lot!
Cheers

It certainly has plenty of colour! Love the sharp guitars sounds, the rumbly bass, the clacky drums and the smooth keys. Love the guitar sound that enters around 2:50. You are a frighteningly good musician, Stan! I shall add this to my SG collection! Beautiful art work, too!

Impressive
First off, I really like the artwork! The music is just as creative. The palette of sounds that you work with here is very impressive. Equally impressive is the way they sit individually in the mix but still have a coherence that delivers a quality overall product. Nice work. Thanks, Peter.

Those acrylics are
water soluble but act a bit like oils...is that right? Always fancied a go ......nice smooth jazzy mix......good pointer of what direction I should aim for in my mixing.

sweeet
This is really cool! Tons of layers! As an experiment in mixing everything sounds super crisp and clean, I dig. Sometimes the arrangement had so many elements I wasn't quite sure what to focus on, but I do like the way the piece breathes. Thanks for posting!!!

Wow
This is so nicely done ! I'm really impressed with how easily you come up with a tune, and it's a real complex arrangement.

Although I'm quite novice in mixing, it really sounded very clean to me.

Did you play the bass on this one too ? It's a beautiful bass line.

Very nice work Stan, very cool listen !

This is funkier than a cat in shades with a hat on! I always love the sound you get from that Jazz master - no one else here does that and you can tell a Stan song a mile away. Great stuff. As for those bends.. you're a braver man than me! Stellar tune, crystal clear production and fantastic artwork to boot!

This is golden. You have a good balance of all instruments, and great ability. Lovely clean notes, and an amazing blend of sounds, tones and color. Percussion section is truly well placed. A true canvas of music.

Ever heard of Vini Reilly?
The guitar playing reminds me very much of Vini Reilly's work in the Durutti Column. Please check out his work if you have not already. Thanks for sharing.

Morphing
I like how this tune stretches and moves. It takes the listener to some unexpectant, but wlecome surprises, while remaining anchored with that full latin percussive drive. I think you've succeeded with a clear mix. Everything blances nicely, I can focus in on every detail or just sit back and let it all wash over me.
