Description : Now on youtube: youtu.be/0RYfA4iCsSA, soon out on my upcoming album "Step by Step"!
==============
Inspired by a track of Pseudoble. I was noodling along to his track "I wish I didn't know" (which is awesome) and had the words "Snow in Athens" in my head. This with the smooth jazz/fusion atmosphere led me to this track with a sort of Steely Dan feel.

    Hello, I'm glad you're doing well. I was worried that I hadn't seen you for so long. You're right. Sometimes you have to set priorities in your life. It is very important to follow these set priorities.
    Angelica is fine. She's in love again and I've also overcome my little health crisis. We are working hard on new songs. A small album is also planned for the end of the year. Our website must finally be finished.
    I wish you great success in everything you have in mind. Stay healthy and check in every once in a while so I don't have to worry. *smile
    Kind regards, Manuela

    Hello my dear, yeah between trying to finish the album, playing live and actual life happening and ambushing me, I do have a couple ideas for tracks, but nothing like a full song.
    The idea is to get life back in order first (no worries, nothing terrible, just inconvenient), then finish the album, then start writing new stuff.
    Oh, and play live of course, I'll have a "paid" performance this Sunday :D
    How's life for the sisters?

    Well, by Russian standards this hardly counts as snow, but by Athens standards, this is quite a lot ;)

    BaoBou. Superb! You've heard this from me before...... Donald Fagen. This mix is pristine, your guitar solo @2:15 is excellent. Keys, bass, and drums are polished to perfection. You've come in hot here. I thoroughly enjoyed this track. Peace

    hey baou, you are a great observer of the human soul. i specially like the " you dont wanna let me see your face and you dont want to share". your direct approach on lyrics with an open interpretaions makes it unviversal and everyone can take something out of it. im glad for your output and make my own baou album on my laptop :). you give me such an energy, i wake up everyday with hold on, to remind myself to just hold on. its a hard time for everyone right now. you have this calm guitar lead thing going with explosions and it feels like something want to get out of you and you just grabbed it and put in his own special safe place back. your vox is amazing and your own and it calms me down and sometimes i get emotional when i listen to you. love and respect from a banana.

    Dude, I'm floored by that. Thank you so much for that, that truly means a lot. That brought a little tear to my eye (more than one, to be honest).

    Thank you so much. IF you like the looperman version, maybe you also want to check this one: https://youtu.be/ukBUDm18JAw

    Hiya, my friend in music. The composition is wonderful. You seem to have caught everything that needs improvement, so no sense in going over any of that. I will say that I love the "texture" of your voice. To my ear this is an obvious nod to Steely Dan, as someone else pointed out. I hear it in the music composition, and the way you deliver your vocals. I'm digging it!

    LovePeace&Light,

    Mykael

    Thanks Mykael! We know each other's taste and that makes a comment like that extra wonderful.

    I'm not sure I could actually do it, but I'd love to try to write something for you to record. Drop me a DM if you would consider that (and no worries if you have your own sources).

    Sure, I can hear the Steely Dan influence, nicely done! Well written and composed, I didn't hear any earlier versions, been a little occupied lately elsewhere but this sounds fine. The singing, the harmonies are reminiscent of SD, nice job with that too. Two thumbs up!!

    Hello, it seems to me that the song is much more balanced after your changes, it sounds more harmonious. The instruments are well and neatly arranged in the acoustic space. It also doesn't sound as overlaid in terms of frequency. It sounds like what a good song of this genre should sound like. Well done! However, there is a louder crack at 1:25 and a quieter crack at 2:18. Good mix, good mastering, excellent work. Greetings Manuela

    That super Manuela!
    I just had a session with my producer friend and he was also generally positive; much more so than on the "I'm sorry" track which needs a lot more work, especially on the bass and drums, but even in general, on the composition. Actually, even the lyrics.

    This one he commented to tighten up the vocals more, which I'm going to do, and he had some ideas to make the piano and drums sound a bit better.

    All lovely. I need to find a balance between making the most of tracks and also leaving sufficient space for new tracks... But this is one that I think deserves some love :)

    Thanks so much Manuela!

    Hi Bao , good ideas in this track, to deepen! I think Manu is sincere and that she wanted to help you in your compositions, let's keep calm to share our passion for music!

    Hey buddy of course Manuela is sincere, nobody is thinking otherwise! I live her very much and she is always incredibly helpful. I really really appreciate every comment she makes and I totally appreciate every critical comment. Those are the best comments, and I wish everyone would do that!

    They don't even have to be nice, but Manu always manages to do it in a respectful way. She has years of experience and a wealth of knowledge and it's totally amazing and great she shares some of that here. Couldn't be better.

    Also, don't hesitate to give me similar advice. I'm very sorry if I gave the impression I didn't like it - the opposite is true. 1 comment saying "ooh, this is a bit XYZ" is 100 times more helpful than 100 comments saying "yeah great" (although of course I also like those ;) )

    Again, I love what Manu said, but I felt I knew her well enough to also make a little joke :) my apologies if that wasn't clear to you :)

    All good my man! Thanks for listening and commenting, even commenting that the reply wasn't clear is a useful comment, so thanks for that!

    Hahaha I was just yanking your chain a bit. Pulling your leg, as it were. No worries, I totally got what you meant, but I decided to make a todo list myself.
    I already started a bit and especially upgraded the vocals a bit and applied some EQ and compression on the instruments. See if you like the difference :)

    Well this is a lovely track, and Im very chuffed that my own recent effort helped to you to find it - it's a better track than mine in my view, has a lot more heart and sounds a lot more real. Nice structure, lyric, arrangement and playing (Im sure too you can polish it more if you want)
    : )

    BaoBou
    Reply by BaoBou

    Your production values are so much better, and I have to say I enjoyed the structure of your song just fine. I gave it another listen and it's a really excellent track!
    Maybe we need to set up an exchange - you produce my track and I do the minimum of (re)arrangements on yours :)

    Thanks for listening my friend!

    Hello BaoBoo, what can I say? We've been walking the same musical path here for quite a while. Not together but close to each other. I have always been critical of the development you have made here and I have to say that you have made incredibly good progress. And that makes me very happy! I don't think you need my well-intentioned advice anymore. You have found your musical path. Keep it up! Greetings Manuela

    BaoBou
    Reply by BaoBou

    Ok now I know mow you're taking the piss ;)

    Of course I need your advice, well intended or not. In fact, the way you say it is how I would react to an unruly teenager who never listens... So now I'm thinking which of the lessons didn't I follow?

    Well, there are many:
    - it's too draft
    - the vocals are very unfinished and need to also be more aligned with the music
    - there's a transition where I took the lazy option of just copy pasting something from another section rather than re-recording it, and it sounds weird
    - I think I need to put some high pass filters on the groups to let the bass/mid come out more
    - the keys overlap with the vocals and the guitars, and I'm not 100% sure where to put them, as this is simply the sound I like
    - the drums were a quick setup as a placeholder. I made some improvements which made it worse, so I need to take the track to the practice room, listen a couple times without drums and start from scratch

    More ideas?
    I mean, I say Steely Dan, but I'm sure Becker and Dagen would be appalled by this mess.

    ...which is why I put up tracks like this when it's fresh and exciting, not the next morning when I think I failed entirely and should move into something more suited to my talents, like collecting pet rocks or something ;)

    Mit schoenen Gruessen,

    B.

Description : A fat groove journey incorporating hip hop, jazz, rock and more. Chilled out and rocking, with some big riffs and basslines. The main instruments are saxophone, piano and cello plus some resonator guitar and banjo. Sax is the only instrument not played by me as the parts here were contributed a few years ago by a guy I know. Anything that sounds like distorted guitar is actually distorted cello. Loads of that, including solos, in the second half. No electric guitar or bass guitar. Not much synth work but there are two synth basses and an organ. Otherwise, it's quite an acoustic "played instruments" kind of sound. Lots of drums, including loops, multiple programmed acoustic kits and drum hits. I know Radiohead have an excellent song called Everything In Its Right Place but I still like my title and there's a story behind it (nothing to do with music). Interesting feedback appreciated. Do you have any favourite or least favourite sections? Details are appreciated...
