When I lived in Los Angeles, I knew a man from my alumni associatino who had been a band-leader for a 1960s Burbank TV band. They played live during entertainment shows, and provided soundtracks. They all loved jazz, but supplied whatever was needed. The fellow was from very rural Oklahoma, and he “went to the city” and made the sophisticated popular music that fueled that era. This song could be by a modern inclination of that band.

I like that bass intro, which keys into a neat little piano line. The vox works well with the melody, although the vox might be pulled down just a slight bit, with the bass pulled up a trace.

The strings-like backing atmosphere comes in very nicely. The horn comes in just when it should, making for a nice variation in the action. I like that little bumblebee run in the piano line—it “feels” good.

The mix here is a pleasure to hear—things fall “in the mix” in locations that “feel real”.

Vintage RT, humor, great musicianship and technical maneuvering, with a bit of quirk and strangeness. I love the sax too at the end.

Oh, yes..Great acoustic sound. What a good idea too, with this acappella. I have the sensation to be with you, in the same room, sat in the corner, listening KaerTrouz and the other musicians, all around the piano, for an excellent improvisation..

very nice arrangement. kaer’s vox always reminds me a bit of ricki lee jones, with her nuances and this arrangement really kind of plays that jazzy side up nicely.

The only way I can describe this is smoky, warm and delectable.
