Great arrangement and your trademark tasty playing. I really love the understated, yet steadfast backing groove (subjectively I even wish it was a little more in the foreground), acting as a subtle musical message in itself: Waiting while staying active/moving.

Probably wouldn’t surprise you to know I had the same dilemma. I had it a little more present in the headphone mix, and backed it off on the speakers, because it seemed to need it.

Thanks for your insightful listen. :)

Moody reggae. Cool. Clean arrangement. Very much enjoyed the listen.

Spooky, when I listened I got exactly the same feel as Speck. Moody and cool. Sort of an interesting combination of sadness and elegance.

Nice simple reggae treatment couldn’t really imagine it but it really compliments the vocals.

I’m feeling that laid back Island Groove on this One A.B.

oh my! what a wonderful way to start my Halloween :)

i would not have imagined a reggae arrangement of this song, but it works amazingly well. it is a testament to your rhythm, voicings and playing. nice use of Bucky Jonson’s samples too.

many thanks admiral!

No, definitely not! That’s the Bucky Jonson piece I used. :)

I’m definitely the worst reed instrument player in the history of the world!

This guitar always marvelous and magical. The saxophone, brings your personal touch and reminds me a great musician Englishman, who excelled with the instrument, “Slap Johnson”. This arrangement is excellent …. Thank for moment great ….

Thanks! I’ve only heard the first few secs of yours yet. When I heard the Muezzin call, I knew I would want to listen to that in a prayerful moment later today. :)
