Description
two friends get together on a beautiful fall afternoon, set their gear up on the deck outside, enjoy a libation of their choice, and jamming ensues. Always get the urge to haul everything outside on a nice day and jam. Someday

I'm bummed its the end of summer. Thank you Z, for always willing to have a go.

Wow...
Disco lives! That's some jam session. Cool beat holding things together and some tasty piano and guitar riffs. Just a very skilled performance from you guys that is loaded with energy. You guys are IN CONTROL and it is so pleasant to just sit back and marvel at your skill. Bring on the lights, the warm summer/autumn evening, a dance floor, and your song just swings in perfection...Oh...fade it, fade it...too abrupt at the end...My ONLY nit. This is just so pleasant.
Peace.
Paul

endings
alas, my blind spot. I always struggle with them. I think so many of my tracks fade that when one pops out and dies a natural end, I have a tendency to run with it. Thanks Paul for the encouraging review. I think you edged Feter by about 30 seconds or so :-)

makes me think off spinal tap song of the same name..lol Feter I love the fact you felt there was a groove of sorts in the piano. At times I felt the rhythm piano part was crammed in.

The ensuing jam
I do believe that you two guys could just jam and it would come out sounding this polished. Really great music.

just jammin
that would be a treat. Mr Z isn't too far away either :-) Z mixed the polish in, with having those killer guitars come from multiple fronts. Reggie, when you come to Boston, let me know and we'll use the occasion to do just that, even if the porch is covered in ice :-)

Up beat
you would think it was the spring coming. This has all the sounds and melodies of two skilled musicians, wow what i would give to be out amongst the golden leaves with you two guys, jamming and enjoying the view. Which guitar should i pack?

Jon, always great to hear you rip those keys up, you make it sound like you love your music. Thanks for all the joy you bring. Bottoms up!

Super
Those fast fingers over the keys are pretty impressive. I couldn't do that in my dreams:) So I'll stick to the tambourine;)

That guitar stuff is pretty amazing. Love the contrasty shifts happening.

Cool jam:)

Loose 'n tight...
Both keys and guitar are great... I like how the drums work with the track, and the (keyboarded?) bass is really nicely done... Nice how both of you have light touches and that actually gives the track impact... One can really hear the tones of each instrument, and appreciate them...

A very good live feel to it all...

Thanks KTB
For inviting me to the end of the summer party off the deck. This one came together rather quick and gets me ready for the fall where I begin to lock myself away for the winter.

Wow!
This is fantastic. Excellent solos John, and interludes, love how you change the mood towards the end. Sound of the piano is smooth but clear and your timing is outstanding. I'm a piano player, so I'll just say that the guitar sounds just as good and with that said it almost seems to me that the drums could be much more in the background. They have a bit of an 80's feel to them and almost take away from the piano - guitar conversation. Having said that, the musical ideas mixed in here are absolutely fun to listen to, with 2:13+ standing out as being just brilliant. Makes you wanna get up, go outside and enjoy the last few days of summer...

I actually meant to say "MY" personal nits. Man that read horribly wrong in response to your kind comment. I'm just re-reading some posts and I can't believe how that looked (my original reply..aggghhh). Many apologies. I sincerely appreciate yours and others kind comments. Man oh man

Mix
Terry, much appreciated. When mixing I have the luxury of playing almost all the parts via midi over and over making small adjustments on the fly, changing notes, velocity's etc, until I feel comfortable pressing record :-) its a big advantage in the process.

yeah i'm bummed its the end of summer too. but this is a great tune. love those speedy keys, and the way that the guitar seems to slow down when the keys speed up, and vice verse, makes for a cool contrast and so things never get crowded. i like the guitar throughout - so smooth - but i really like the little guitar squeals at the end, very creative. also creative is the little synth/drums break around 1 min where everybody takes a breather and then the guitar cranks back in.

ktb said 2980 days ago (September 22nd, 2009)
that break
almost wound up on the edit floor :-) at the end, it provided that needed break between the solos. Still I'm glad you dug it. Let me know when you need some keys Craig. I love your sound & style. Would be a real treat to try and lay in something.

stellar sound
you guys waste no time making things happen in this goodie.
excellent fluidity to the keys, john - you're soooooo smooth.
guitar has a beautiful voice - love the soaring parts at 1:30.
the cool changes make for a swell listen.
the keys and guitar at 2:30 are an exercise in wonderfulness.
man, you 2 sound effortlessly pro!
please sirs, may we have more?

Really nice placement of sounds in the mix
with subtle movement and lots of room. The playing is pretty damn incredible all around. I have no idea how you program drums like that and the bass, keys and guitars are so on. Great work.

If this is what you come up with on a fall afternoon I would like to hear what you could do with, like a whole week of serious composing and playing! Very cool keys and guitars, and a nice, easy going groove - nice job - thanks for the share! - Sig

Whoa, this is a killer Jam John
You guys were having a lot of fun out there on the deck by the sound of this. Very cool mix of Jazz, Disco, *& Rock with Z just flailing that ax, almost as much as you were on the keys. Definitely like the end results.

I like it a lot, gonna put a copy on the iPod and go back to listen every once in a while. Excellent piece boys

If this is Jamming...
then I don't know what polished would sound like. It's only in the second listen that I can really start to hear the skill that is inherent in this piece - my first listen I was too blown away to bring my wits to really pay attention.

The interplay between the instruments is so natural sounding, and the solos seem effortless yet so evocative of the best studio jazz musicians.

Bravo, hang loose, and thanks for choosing to jam together and share the results.

Be well,
Doug
