I would drink a martini right now, except it’s 9:30 on a Sunday morning. I’ll have to replay this during happy hour. ;)

I don’t know where you’re from and I don’t know you’re age but listening to this makes me think you could live in London and that you were a respected member the Acid Jazz movement in the 90s. It’s…swinging!

Hey thanks man. I was in Va Beach when the acid jazz movement exploded. It was never main stream there like when big band made a comeback, but there were definitely a few small crowds at the beach that were really into it.

I think I will have to live in London eventually :)

Oh Jeris, to be honest, it is always a bit embarrassing for me to listen to your songs.
They are always so incredibly perfect. It seems you transform your ideas directly into great music, just like blowing soap bubbles.
Really impressive, I have big respect…

Wow, thanks man. To be honest I’m sort of amazed sometimes when an idea can manifest itself so closely. And sometimes the most amazing thing is when a sample that is not from yourself finds it’s way into the mix, and it seems like it couldn’t manifest without that sample.

I’m sure we’ve all had that, or when it takes little effort to mix things together. I’m not sure this was one of those

This one took a lot of tweaking and I’m still not sure if it works. I almost deleted the vocals but I just like them too much.

Well, I guess it’s already pretty cool to have a good idea of a music result in your head.
But the other important thing is the ability to manifest these ideas within music.
One need not just only a DAW, it needs a lot of skills, talent and experience to combine these things.
I hope you understand what I try to explain, because I think you’re a really talent, smoothly make this bridge.

Keep up the good work!
