Beautiful work
Nice collaboration. Mandolin worked great with this song
which is very cool because I never heard a mandolin on a
bossa nova before. Guitar playing also great and a nice
mix of that with the piano. I don't know how you could
have made it any better.

sounds great
Nice relaxing melody for a watm sunny day by the sea. Very good sound from those instruments. THe only thing I'd recommend is to remove the very fist section of mandoline; let it come in as it does later to let the music build. This is a very pleasing piece of music to listen to. Thanks for sharing.

very laid back
this meanders, doesn't really go anywhere, but where is
there to go? you're already here, in the middle of these
beautiful sounds.

Really liked it
This was so relaxed and beautiful. My only critique is that the shaker in the background got distracting because it didn't always line up with the rhythm of the other instuments.

nice choice of sounds...
...but I couldn't get past the out-of-synch shakers
throughout the piece. It was very unsettling. The piano
panned all the way to the right also seemed a bit far away,
as though the piano was playing in the next room.

The mandolin also seemed a bit out of synch with the
piano, perhaps because of the panning.

All that said....this is still a very pleasing combination of
sounds. I just wish they were synched better.

It's very interesting to hear the mandolin play bossa. I
hope you do another tune with this combination of

Happy, lifting entertainment. You two have skills. Just a
couple strikes of the mandolin seemed a bit off pitch or
dissonant. Other than that, wow.

There are indeed a couple of fluffed notes on my part. Or more. I'm always in
a hurry. I should calm down maybe. Though the actual dissonances are
deliberate, for better or worse. It was a real pleasure though to do. I only
discovered MJ a few weeks ago and the idea of collaborating with such an
out-of-my-league jazz player as kcsaito seems pretty miraculous to me -
especially as I'm in no
position to communicate much verbally with him. He simply sent through his
chord charts and the GB file. I realise that to many of you who've been here a
while that's pretty normal, but to me it's incredible. Deep respect to MJ.

What I really like about keishi saito's music is the way you can really hear him
improvising - especially in his sometimes quite eccentric timings. He really
went for this on drunken piano blues, which is a track I love. Compared to a
lot of software-driven productions, his music always seems very alive.

Delicate and precious
Excellent. Delicate and precious. Such grace. Very simple
and clean and eloquent. I especially like what seems like
the sound of your breathing in the background. Sighs...
Such wonderful pluckiness.

Nice Mellow Work
Interesting touch incorporating the mandolin into this - it
works very well.
