Super atmosphere created here — the harmonizations and thunderstorm lending a certain creepiness that works very well. I’d love to hear this finished! Thanks so for picking me up and mixing me up!

Oh I love this, magmavander. A super-cool and delicious jazz treatment - very subtle - and a very original setting for what is one of my favourite SJ a cappellas. xxxx

Smooth, silky jazz with just the right instruments - piano, stand-up bass, sax, brushes on drums, and of course, just the right singer!

A few discordant notes here and there help the jazz setting to not be too “loungy”

Thanks a lot admiral! I did it some weeks ago, if not some months. I was not sure that it was that good.

There is a nice pulse along with the angular chords and bass line. Melancholy and psychic calmness. Does that sound like a lot of B.S.? Let’s just say it’s groovy and fits the vocal/lyrical message well.

Thanks H! What is B.S. ?

B.S. is an acronym (a word formed from the letters of a series of words) for a rude expression used to describe something that is untrue, insincere or exagerrated. I meant what I wrote sincerely, but then I thought the language sounded a little phony or pretentious. Example - “Haskel may think he sounds intelligent, but anyone can see it’s just bulls**t”.

I agree 100% with the Hon. Admiral Bob above - it’s just the right sprinkling of discordant notes here.

Fantastic feel to it.

Thanks! Happy to see you again:) I’m glad you enjoyed these notes. I wanted to achieve a particular atmosphere, not something too smooth and comfortable. Kind of faintness.
