Now tell me again why are you asking ME about voicings, etc? This is really nice and I agree with the comment about the sonority of the instrumentation. I cannot hear anything critically wrong. I envy your drum part and sound. How and where did you get it? Could you do some drum parts for me?
The guitar solo is great. The only suggestions I would make, and for experimentation only, is to use a Bass Trombone instead of a Tuba and to try the Jazz Fretless bass. I got used to them with my college jazz ensembles and I prefer their clearer sound to the rather "tubby" acoustic bass.
Steve, thanks for stopping by to listen and comment. I started with a short 3/4 jazz waltz drum loop sample. I broke it up and added hits and cymbals to it. My drum tracks have a tendency to be pretty weak, so I thought I would try to spice up the rhythm track a bit. I did receive the pdf and mp3 for 'alone together', thanks a bunch for that. I plan to study the charts to get some insights into the things that your are doing, which I am very impressed with.
Some really nice stuff in here! I like the "live" feel you achieved with this, especially with the rhythm section.
You had some very effective horn stuff going on, but they just seemed a little lost in the mix. The voicings sounded very solid, though. Like you, I've begun combining the CMB brass sounds with JABB for a more varied timbre mix throughtout each individual instrument section -- like real life!
