Description
A birthday present to my daughter Dar (she is in Paris at the moment, so I decided to give her a tune for her birthday; it does sound French for me somehow...)

After clicking "yes" in a pop-up window, hit "Command+R", that seems to
force it to accept the comment. Tip by "rschletty".

Missed this 1st time around
So I am listening now after hearing your re-mix posted
today. I don;t understand how this version slipped under
the radar? Such a beautiful piece, but you know what I
think if you read my comments on your remix.

(I think you were smart to remix and repost to give this
chart a second chance.) Excellent.

So fine
Listened to your version 2 first and, gotta say, I like this
better. The MIDI keyboard sound you added or changed in
v2 gets in the way of the rounded, rich sounds of your
sax, even tho they are mixed very low. This version seems
more intimate, more just you singing thru your sax. The
balance may be better on v2, and it has a better ending,
but I like this version best for its honest feel. Don't mind
the reverb at all for such a romantic piece. Wonderful gift.

So fine
Thank you. The "MIDI keyboard" sounds in version 2 are actually real saxes, one sax, that is, tripple dubbed and transformed into minor chord. If it sound artificial, I didn't do that :), there is no effects applied, it's just really soft, so only the higer overtones are audible... If we are talking about the same thing, that is :). I used MIDI keyboard (pencilled in) for the melody and main solo comps, using electric piano sound...

I went to check out your
artists page and this wonderful Sax sound started to fill my speaker. I sat here mesmerized listening to this piece. The recording quality is top notch, but the sound of the sax and the arrangement is absolutely awe inspiring.

Beautifully done my friend. Thanks for this Monday morning treat.
