5/4 riff...
Another solid instumental. Great feel on those ivory keys,
tone, volume,everything seems right on this jazz piece. I
am not surprised in the least.

5/4 riff...
Thank you, Jack. I figured, since there is a total of one chord in the whole tune, I can paly a little with the velocities of the individual notes in the MIDI tracks to make it sound a bit more "live". Took me about 6 hours to "pencil in" the piano/bass/drums MIDI tracks...

Take Five
Cool tenor smoothness reminds me, inevitably, of Paul
Desmond's soloing (Dave Brubeck Take Five) without a
bridge or change of chords. Excellent playing, excellent
layering. This fantastic recording of your exquisite
breathy sax playing, your best, flawless recording yet.
Altho I wish it would have evolved into something more
than a single repeated measure. As is, it seems like a
musical idea that never quite becomes a song, a groove
that fades in and fades out without ever coalescing, if that
makes sense.

Take Five
Thank you. It does make sence, of course, and it is a skecth rather than a complete production: I am thinking about key change, at least, and, may be, a bridge - for the next take.

good jammin with yourself
Tobin took the words right out of my mouth -- that this
track is reminiscent of Brubeck's "Take Five".

The simplicity of your sax riffs make it possible to
overdub successfully, it's not too crowded with notes.
You've provided a nice simple accompaniment, too, which
works very well here.

I agree that this piece would be even better with more
than one chord. But it's amazing how much interest you
did create with this!

I like the interesting timing
but I'm disappointed that the riff never changes. This
could be such a nice piece with some real writing in here
that expands on the musical thoughts presented by both
the riff and the improvisation over top. Song content is a
good start but simply needs more than just that riff: 6.
Production sounds good except that drums sound a little
too low, and I feel variety could be carried over to
instrumentation as well: 7. Performance is nice and clean:
8. Originality/creativity is hard to judge because of the
other limitation: 6. I want to give this a higher score for
potential, but I have to rate what's here; Overall: 6. Flesh
out your musical
ideas and bring it back for a much better rating from me.

jazz drumming,
unlike pop, barely uses a bass drum.

Your track would also flow better without that somewhat
busy bass drum.

The sax part is cool though. You're a great player.
