    Well mate...I likely have little to offer as I`m just sitting here bobbing my head & enjoying listening...and thinking its good to discover this kind of creativity and musicianship on LM..was away for a few years & scratched my old head a bit about going back to posting on a site where my musical tastes are likely so retro they`d be lost in the latest genres (although I admit there have been some I really liked)...this is cool stuff mate...much respect to you...Ed

    Ed, thanks for your listen and kind comments. LM is the place for creativity and inspiration to soar. The amazing thing is the musicianship across the board. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts here. Take it easy Ed and be safe.

    Sorry to post twice, but I forgot to ask in my first post... what does 'I'm sticking a fork in this' mean?

    Diclipline, I ran into technical issues uploading the update for this one. My only remedy was to take down the previous file and replace it with the update and lose the feedback and other info. This is the final hence, "stick a fork in it"

    Hello Mark, you certainly very busy musically and whenever I look at this site you have a new track up. Maybe you should consider changing your pseudonym to 'Mr Prolific'. Joking aside, There are some nice moments in this. At 2:33 I like the dual melody line you have going on and again at about 4 mins you have a nice piano sax interlude.

    Discipline, Hey there! Busy? well yep. I've been in this creative flow since about mid-January. Right before that, I had to do battle with writer's block. I'm really happy that you got the chance to hear this track. And it's a big plus for me that you enjoyed the listen. I need to mention again,
    "Metropolis" is A FIRE Composition! Thanks for your listen and compliment. Be safe.

    Good track! But the drums are a bit overpowering in the mix for my taste (and I say that as a part-time drummer). Awesome drums btw, tight as a rock, but I prefer hearing more of the guitar and sax!

    BaoBou, greetings, thanks for stopping. I respect your perspective on this listen. This was an experiment with tension set at certain points in the mix. Normally you build tension to a certain point then release. The entrance started with extreme tension which left an impression. Like a roller coaster ride. So yep it was intended to sound that way. Be safe.

    A delicious jazz-funk thang you have born from the depths of change and evolution.. cool work as always. I love what you bring to the table here mate. Someday I need to tell you about my first time going to the Blue note in NYC to see Mike Stern. That bass wah you use is pretty cool. I love the two schools of funk which one is more acoustic-electric, and the other is synth-driven. That backward reverb sax was a nice touch. I used to love listening to Zapp (Roger Troutman) which I discovered in college while DJng on air. in 1990. Then that Piano is sublime. There is some cool FX being used by yourself on this tune. Enjoying this while opening my First La Fin du Monde beer this evening ( The end of the world at 9pct ABV). truly both puts me in a nice place this late evening mate. Soldier on mate!

    cru, when you share the fact you're deep chillin', I immediately drop what I'm doing and go into chill mode! You have that effect. I dropped my phone when you mentioned Mike Stern! Oh yes, I got put up on Mike when he played in Miles Davis's electric band back in the '80s. He made that Telecaster talk for sure. Thanks for letting me know you like this one too. Have a great week and be safe.

    I'm not sure if it is by design or not, but I'm hearing something odd in the open high hats (at 0:09, through 0:17), like the sound is cutting out for a split second in the middle of the open hat's reverberation. And again at 0:40, so I guess it is throughout. Probably just a matter of taste (It just bugs me).

    Great bass and instrumentation throughout. That horn right before the low sax is still a bit out of place.

    I think I'm just picky today.

    :D

    Still loving that quick sax part with the delay. The harmony behind the later solo is interesting as well. The sax writing in general is great.

    Still a great track, still a fave. I figured some feedback other than the usual awe could help.

    TTYL.

    bringer, what's up my dude? I'm glad you've checked in with me. Thank you for taking another listen and sharing your observations. Ok so the hats, I was going for an arrogant in-yo-face abrasive drum and bass so I could move into that funk groove. You know contrast for that boss effect. Sorry about that bugging you. Put your sunglasses on and bob yo head at that section and you'll be fine:) I'm glad the sax arrangement and instrumentation for the most part was cool for you. TTYL

I'm never gone and won't disappear just catching up on work but I'll be back stalking your page hahaha...no I'm no stalker but just love quality music and that's what you bring dear friend that can't be taken away. Once again happy to listen into your SPLENDID Work!...I'm all about supporting my fellow musicians when I'm here * that's all I'm about when I'm here. Keep *Shining* that light your work is off the charts :)

    P.S that vegetarian Mediterranean charcuterie sounds delish BTW... yep stopped eating meat years ago now & feel much better for it. Take Care & Stay Safe.

    Angelus, know this..... you're always welcome here. You touched on a strong topic. My music is niche. Either you really like it or you don't with a small percentage of indifference thrown in for good measure. When I uploaded my first tune back in October of 2021, my priority was to get analytics from the community at LM on my music. Like if what I was doing was worth the listen. So any feedback is gold. That might sound strange but I had material from a two-year period that I shared with just a select few. My aspiration is for a studio/retreat for musicians to get away and ignite a greater passion for their music and creativity and I would lend any assistance I could. I've come to a better understanding of the musician's temperament as I believe we have a lifetime's worth of music that came with this gift called life. Now to switch gears, Angelus I need to borrow your grown-up ears for a track I really need to develop further. Only if it is not an imposition, give me a way to get the file over to you. And only when you have time, critique it for me in relation to how the instrumentation and vocals balance out. This is kinda new territory with the vocals. Thanks for your support. You're a great encourager:)

    Hola mi buen amigo MONTE, siento lo de tu pista original, todos hemos sufrido alguna situacin parecida por lo que puedo entender tu malestar, a mi me ha ocurrido con algunas pistas y se pasa muy mal, pero al menos lo compensas con otro tema tan bueno o mejor que el original. Gran pista, es soberbia, con la esencia de tu saber hacer de siempre, con ese toque elegante y vivaz que te caracteriza. Y ese sonido limpio muy trabajado que me encanta. Otro exito hermano. Que tengas un buen da. Paz y salud.

    sirefox, es una alegra completa cada vez que escuchas una de mis creaciones musicales. La forma en que analizas da palabras y luego significado a mi proceso. Todava estoy aprendiendo y me has ayudado ms de lo que sabes. As que a ti, muchas gracias por el tiempo que te tomas. Los problemas tcnicos no son ms que algo que superar cuando aparecen. Y lo hice. En esta pista, me alegro de que lo hayas disfrutado. Es por esa razn que hago lo que hago! Est a salvo mi amigo y buen hermano.

    M.T. I had to come listen and comment this before I'm back working & busy with limited time here on LM. Hearing this before my morning run is awesome & I was not disappointed at all. Groovylicious! from start to finish and who would of thought you could improve on the masterpiece you already produced but this too is FUNK heaven...The sax is OUTSTANDING! for real. Don't forget to *Take a bow* lol TOP! Music if ever I heard it.

    I'm sorry about your experienced technical issues, usually you can just press browse and upload a different file without removing the whole track but I'm not sure what your problem was and if that would have worked. Continue the GREAT! Work. Glad to have got a chance to listen to this, always Splendid! Work. Bravo!!

    Angelus, its a pretty good thing that youve had a chance to check this update out before work. Hopefully this set the pace for the day and week. As you can hear its shaping up ok. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here. I was told the file for this update was bad. So I decided to delete the original then upload this file and that worked perfectly. BTW I found a fly vegetarian Mediterranean charcuterie board recipe:)! Thanks for the magnanimous encouragement. With your experience and awesome talent in the industry, that speaks volumes. So dont disappear and check in often. Have a awesome day and week. Ill TTYL.
