Wow
Crazy man....Crazy.....
I thought when I read the time sig that this would be just weird but thats what I get for thinking. Not wierd but... strange, and thats the good kind of strange. Has a very live midnight in the smokey coffee house kind of feel.

Cool
Smokey, you have a really cool jazz sound here. The choice of instruments is perfect for this. I especially like how the piano took the main theme and ran in different directions with it. Fine composition! Thanks for sharing.

this is another "inside out" song. i started from the improv in the middle and built a framework around it by picking out some themes and setting them up in the opening and reiterating them at the end... it's a bit of a cheat...

thanks!

Something I love in accomplished musicians...
...is when they can do something like take an unusual time signature, as here, and have you, in a few bars, forgetting all about that because the result is so musical, so infectious and easy to listen to...

Doesn't end up sounding pedantic or like an exercise... It sounds like music...

Nice feel to this... I could imagine a live combo playing this, and it sounding really nice in a small concert space or coffeehouse...

Nice job ____
SmokeyVW what a nice song job you did here and a great listen before I call it a night. I really enjoyed this one. I think the genre should be more like "Jazz_Nu Jazz"

Thanks for sharing,

Nice one Bill
Took me a while to get here - but I'm sure glad I made it. I've been riding that train to nowhere lately.
Great soundspace - the drums and bass have a really good feel. I like the piano extension in the middle. Overall a really enjoyable and impressive piece of music. The way back in with the bass out of the piano as killer. A SomkeyVW Supreme.

Jazz just really mystifies me
It feels like watching a scene from a movie - a busy city street - cars, a few busses, construction, pedestrians all doing their own thing, while being subconsciously mindful of their surroundings, but feeding off the energy of the whole - disconnected and yet connected. I find jazz to be strangely disconcerting.

thanks for the visuals - very nice.

i think you got it. it's not perhaps what anyone else would bring to the table - but that's not the point. it's that you became engaged in the listening and saw things in your mind's eye.

for that - i thank you - it tells me this succeeded!

New Beginnings
Smokey, this is a delightful song. The beginning reminds me of that part in a movie--you know, the montage--where the main character finally realizes what he's been doing wrong all along and decides that it's time for a new beginning. So we see him doing all these positive things to reinforce his conviction to change for the best. This music would follow that sequence very nicely. It's very uplifting!

first of all - thanks for commenting! i totally forgot to get back to this song to reply to comments...

as in my previous post, it's what you see in your mind that counts. i'm glad this worked for you. i really like your interpretation - it clicks for me. maybe i'll just adopt this for what i meant it to mean!

thank you
