    I don't know how I missed this one. Great track! WOW. Piano playing is fire, for sure. Love the doubling synth. What synth is that? (Around 50 sec mark) Loved it. Thanks for all the work you put into this. UE

    Hey Mark,

    I had to take another listen to this re-edit & it's AMAZINGGG!!! Those piano keys are just a treat! to listen to, my ears are happy. Everything sounds mighty fine! & is sitting in it's rightful place as usual, one thing I like is hearing a sweet jam like this because I know it's all quality. The modifications made are real NICE!...The first time I heard it, it was awesome! & now even more so AMAZINGGG!!! BUT let's just talk about the drums for a sec, seriously now, off the freaking hook drum-work, yes sir you went to town and back with the re-editing you wasn't messing around. TOP! Work my friend, you have got this locked & loaded. Bravo!!!

    Greetings Angelus. Thanks as always for the stop through and gracing the place with your presence. I really admire the attention you pay to the fine details. The backstory for the re-edit came from going through some new instruments, that all I can say is WOW. So I picked this one to improve upon. Drums? I just had to do that around the world roll with that Rhodes lick @1:57! This one was and still is liberating for me. Anyway, the feedback, reaction, and complements are received humbly. Thanks for taking out time to listen one more time. Quality? That's my motivation. I've got a bit to go, so we'll keep chopping away. Be and stay safe, my friend. Till the next round.

    Mark. Everything here is so indescribably in flux that I cannot sit still. All the instruments are superbly played, but what excites me the most are these incredible drums. If I were a drummer it would definitely frustrate me...LOL. Big compliment, the trip was really fun! Peace, Micky

    Micky. Greetings. Thank you for checking out yet another one of my tracks. I decided after updating and upgrading my VST collection, I should refine this one. And that because of that groove. You might want to check the update out. I'm still debating over the B3. I'm happy you really enjoyed what you heard to the degree you couldn't sit still, LOL. See, that's what's up.......! Moving and grooooooooovin! Thank you for sharing your thoughts and kind comments. We'll keep the big fun in the music, for sure. Peace.

    Great keys work and note/chord selection and composition throughout. Wasn't digging the MIDI choice after the piano, kind a generic orchestra sound, doesn't match the sound quality of the other instrument choices, which are excellent (I would put a pipe organ there instead).
    Loving that sax sound and the later flute. Piano in beginning and end is dry as hell but I assume you were gonna get that tweaked later.
    Had to listen twice to even comment; had to fav as well, great work.

    bringer! Thanks for the stop, listen, and fave. I absolutely treasure your expertise on sound! Im working with some new VST and sending them through the paces. I agree totally about the dry piano and that one section synth horns part. That sax and flute I played on keyboard. Im not sure about the pipe organ, but I need to get everything just right. Check the next update. Peace.

    Hello Mark. All I can say is the sound is brilliant. Excellent work. I think you've still worked a lot on the finer points. The mix is perfect. Each instrument is clearly audible but not intrusive. The solos are well coordinated and driven and introduced by an excellent drummer. Compared to one of your previous versions, the piano is very well integrated in terms of timbre and volume. But highlighting one instrument here would not do justice to the value of the other instruments. Well done, very crisp, great atmosphere that the song spreads. enjoyed it Greetings Manuela

My aim is to set my productions out right which after LM they head over to the local radio station for Friday night jazz and SoundCloud. What you bring in your observations is exactly what look for. That helps me to stay on task. Gratitude for your assistance and huge compliments:)! Be safe.

    To say that this track is in the pocket would be a gross understatement. The drum work is outstanding. The piano intro is very smart, and when the track kicks in, it kicks in with a bang (pardon the pun). The interplay between the piano and the percussion is, well, masterful. Than those sweet horns delicately at play in the background. I hear how thought out this piece is, even though it has an off the cuff live jam vibe; which is astounding when you consider that you have crafted this masterpiece from Loops. I cut my teeth singing at open jams here in Chicago. I travailed the circuit for an entire summer. It was tough going as jazz musicians here are very skeptical of singers (some open jazz jams outright ban singers!), but once you've gained their respect (if you ever do, and I did ) the battle is half won. This piece takes me back to that time which I thoroughly enjoyed, learned a lot and I miss very much. I believe this is the best you've EVER done here on Looperman. Well done, Sir!!!!

    LovePeace&Light,

    Love it. The piano is brilliant but takes too much predominance in the mix. About 4.56 with the Rhodes is the level it should be at. At that point I'm in with the vibe!

    Reply by kingmt77

    Rapresent2. Greetings. Thanks for stopping by. Your feedback is on point. I'm going to remedy the piano with a different one that will set better in the mix. Yep, I'll probably go with a Yamaha C7 on the next round. Be safe.

    LOCKED AND LOADED, BRO here we go. I was done after the first 3 min. or so. The drum track is on the money money good to me. Classic fusion at its finest. I appreciate an artist giving suggestions to enhance my production, but as I'm composing I try to write as if I were the listener because the highest percentage of listeners will be the non professional. I can't do the formula baste method of writing. In music you have to have human element of sound. When you're spiritually connected to an instrument, What sounds out of place is not out of place. No other genre of music can express this better than Fusion which you are a master of. Thank you Mark, for delivering another, it is what you say it is track. PEACE. T576 OUT.

And now that the technology has finally caught up with us, there's absolutely NO EXCUSE not to get better and better. And that freedom tho...... I gotta have it! Thanks brother. We'll chop it up soon. Be safe.

    Amazing as usual. You're the master on the keys, and this track also has a great structure and direction. Love how you came back to the same loop with a little extra as a clear end. Perfect.
    The one thing I wondered, is that in that opening loop (which returns throughout the track) the little frill up and down at 2:03 threw me off a little bit; it felt to me like it was just out of time, like it was a 16th or 8th too early for my brain. I assume it was intentional and it's just my tiny brain that needs to adjust - by the time we got to the end I was ok with it. But maybe still, see if it was how you intended it.
    But that's just the final 0.1%, and you're already on at least 150%. Amazing track, and one of your best I think. Good job man!

    Hi Mark,

    This is another gem of a jazz track indeed. The intro is super duper NICE!!! then a quick burst into a zealous! fire-starter delicious! jazzy funky ensemble and I'm loving everything that I'm hearing, those drums are solid! & at the 1:50 point just OUTSTANDING! only thing I'd say is maybe shorten the length of time of that amazing! drum roll to allow that transition to ease in at around 1:59, though it flows in seamlessly already, the drums threw me a little at that point, it's just a personal taste. I think I kept going back to this point several times, so yes my friend it's just a personal choice. Everything on the track is pure heaven! it's just my ears picking up too much of drums at around the 1:50 point, nothing major just two sharp ears :) You truly are the JAZZMASTER! ~HANDS DOWN~ & you already know just how much respect! I have for you and your work! Bravo! my friend and have a most wonderful! weekend. Catch on the Next one. Stay Safe.

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...
