    Full Fathom Five

    Here's a jazzy little tune I put together some time ago (eons actually) revisited in JABB and stuff like that.

    Hi!

    This is really cool. I really like the piano part, and the changing textures...the bass line is really cool and subtle, I like that. This has a really nice feel to it, Well done.

    I like the subtle percussion, really interesting piece. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi, Derek

    This has a unique sound and flavor to it, and that's an accomplishment on its own.

    Allow me to pass on a note on MIDI control---This would be helped with vibrato control, after touch--the brass is lacking in the greater realism it could have with the use of it. I thought at first that the opening trumpet was a synth because it had no vibrato.

    And a note on the mix - the brass section on the right sounds overly dry in proportion to the rest of the mix.--And the rhythm section is Way under powered in contrast--I really wanted to hear better what the drums, bass and piano were doing.

    I hope those comments are taken to be constructive suggestions as I intend them to be.

    Neat music--Wish I could hear it better!

    Thanks RANDY - Interestingly (or not) I had a lot of aftertouch vibrato in the piece but having left for a couple of days decided that it was too much and just before I posted it I took most of it out.

    Because the rhythm was repetitve, I didn't want it to overwhelm the mix or drive the listener mad!!! but I will try it with a bit more oomph on these bits. Thanks for the comments.

    Thanks Chris for listening.

    I'll have to agree with Randy here - I like the writing, but I really don't care for the mix as much.

    Love that constant underlying beat... got me wiggling and grooving in my chair -- and I need the exercise ;-)

    This, for me, is a real "feel-good" piece, something that evokes dancing on a warm summer night somewhere in the Carribean, or Jamaica, under a straw-topped canope with a lot of friendly native folk in colorful attire. And at the side, a bartender with great stories and funky drinks with umbrellas in them and amusing names.

    (Side note: the weirdest-named drink I ever consumed was at a hole-in-the-wall word-of-mouth-only lounge in Colorado Springs: the "Screaming Monkey Spanker". It was very tasty ;-) )

    Thanks for posting this; very enjoyable!
