Description
I wrote the melody about a year ago, and then was just sitting on it, for I had no concept, except it being a sambish-like thingy, until my daughter Dar said: "I want to write words for it"... and "why the melody is so short?", and I said, "why short? it's this..." and she said: "nope. What you think is a melody, is, in fact, a chorus. The melody is this..." so the beginning of my improv solo became a melody, melody became a chorus, and the whole thing became a song. Well... you be the judges. This melody is very hard to sing, by the way, for originally it wasn't ment to be sang, so hats off to my little girl...

Outstanding...
What a wonderful song... and what a lovely voice and superb performance by your daughter, Dar. Ilya, I am afraid she carries you in this song... ;) A vocal/sax duet. Both of you, just so very fine.
... and I really like the Latin touch.

I love sambas!
This is great. I'm very glad that the "kitchen sink percussion ensemble" has made a return appearance.

Your daughter's voice is fabulous. Does she sing professionally?

Your sax playing ALWAYS gets me "where I live". Thanks for sharing this great tune.

Thank you :)
My daughter has a voice which is (surprisingly) very difficult to record, it seems to degrade in "captivity"... she sounds much more interesting live... no, she does not sing professionally, although it is her favorite thing to do for many years... mainly showtunes, too.

You sure
get a terrific sound out of the sax. Has a belly dance percussive sound but done in terrific taste. It gets really cool when you go stereo.

Nice!

Bravo
Your daughter's vocal is brilliant. Almost eclipses your fine sax solo. The song itself is really good also, nice beat. Thanks for sharing this.

Dude...
... Wow.

I think out of everything I've heard from you so far, I seriously like this one the best, hands down.

You have such a sweet tenor sound, and this just simply a fantastic piece.

Very well done, my friend. You should be proud of this. It just plain sounds great. :)

Wow
This is gorgeous, Ilya! Your daughter is fantastic. Great voice and that is one tough melody to sing. She does it seemingly without effort. Your sax -- your beautiful sax -- is, as always, thrilling. This is a fantastic song that showcases a lot of familial talent.

love it
Lovely realization of a piece. Great backing tracks there. Attention grabbing. One wonders what is coming next. As others have said your daughter's voice is fine and mellow. A wonderful tune. I want to listen again...

One of the most enjoyable songs I have heard on MJ.
I look forward to listening to more of your work.
