    "A short cruise ..."; a revised score and a much improved recording:

    I do not remember if I have ever posted this piece here before.

    "A short cruise through the semi-abandoned side streets and alleys of L.A during the wee hours of a hot mid-summer's night" for Soprano Sax, Piano, Bass, and Drums. All Done with JABB.


    At Sibelius Music (Score and MP3)
    "A Short Cruise ..."

    At Amaze FM (MP3 only) "A Short Cruise ..."

    Hi Ed,

    I listened on the weekend; just getting around to commenting.

    Nice work ... very evocative music. The sop is perfect for the lead. The whole piece sounded dirty and tawdry ... and I mean that as the highest compliment. I've been through some of those LA back alleys in the middle of the night when I was in the Navy many years ago ... your number could have been the film score for it!

    Only comment is mix-related: I thought percussion was a little low on the Bossa sections.

    I really enjoyed your number.

    Regards,

    Frank

    Well done. I thought the change to bossa-nova was a bit too fast, but for the rest it's a very smooth song, with some interesting chords, a nice bass, some sweet melodies, nice timings, and a very believable sax.

    Thank you both for taking the time to listen and comment. Your comments are most welcome and helpful.

    Thank you, too, to all who have listen, but not comments. Thank you for your time.

    Ed
