A quicky, throw-away, I wrote several years ago and have re-mixed (and re-arranged) for GPO (Why? because I like this song for some reason - maybe the simple melody, or maybe the stride-piano, the qausi-reggae rhythm?... I dunno).
If it sounds like the tuning isn't quite right that is due to Akoustik Piano's Upright patch and how a real band often sounds with an upright. Notice that the violin player steps closer to the mic shortly after he starts playing - how's that for realism! . Introduction is a bit deceptive, and the rhythm of the final "verse" is... unique..., but what would life be without surprises? Hope you have as much fun listening as I had writing it.
