Thanks for your comment bucca.
Can you tell me why you wouldn't please.

I have to admit that panning is not a strongpoint with me and this was the first time I used it with a planned and obvious result in mind.

hey Robert

listened again - more or less it's kinda mixed around the middle, some steps out, some doesn't - all in all not the worst guessing in smaller theaters/living rooms it'll sounds fine - in larger ones dunno. but again, it's only my opinion, beneathe notice thx for asking

regards
bucca

Hi there,
thanks for the xtra comments.
I gave my ears a rest from it for 4 days and then listened to it on my monitors, on another pc with Creative speakers and in my car. There are some diferences which seem obviouse now, ie, the drums seem too loud and some of the timing of trumpet and sax is way out .. sigh ..

I do hear what you mean about the panning. Seems ok-ish on my monitors via reaper but not so clearly in the car. I think some of the reson for this is that there are three tracks with different 3 or 4 note repeat riffs (one of which is reveresed)and they interfere with each other because the sounds are similer, and one of them has too much sustain probably.

Anyway, I will have to revisit but thanks again for your time and help

I will agree with that. Except this, nothing to say for me. Sure you got a result. I've listen quickly to all your other tracks. Nice work you got there. I like that kind of jazz. You're good at brass too and some strange effects are ok.
To much HH on MeRay, Tobago is to "island" for me, I've listened to Mild Blue before Majestee and I prefer as an instrumental, excellent spirit in the intro on All the size.
Nice pieces. Bye

Hello jeranx,
thankyou for your comments and for all the listening.
Some of those tracks were not meant to be public ... ah well

For information:
The MeRay song was a collaboration with my brother and so was just an early version for us both to work on,

I was not sure what you meant by "Tobago is to "island" for me". I visited Tobago and was invited to a street party. When I returned home I just had to try and make a song with steel drums - just some fun.

Mild Blue Rhumba was an accident developed from listening to rhumba style music. I posted it here and someone (Boa..) rightly pointed out I had not followed the 8, 16, 32 bar format. So, I redid it, as Majestee, to the 'proper' format which was around the time of the Queen's birthday here in the UK. I wrote the words very quickly and sent the song to the Queen for her birthday but didn't get a reply

I listened to your work, very tight, precise and melodic - very impressive!
I especially liked Djjazz and Ballade Wurly - very cinematic overall.

The picture heading of your soundcloud page - people with their heads in the sand underwater - I have seen this mans work, Jason deCaires Taylor, in a museum in Lanzarote, some of it is so evocative now that seaweed and coloured barnicles have developed.

Hi Robert.

Sorry for breaking your privacy, but I'm a clicker and like to know about things. I'm not at all a jazz player but was very happy to discover your whole work as a bunch of good pieces of that. You're very good at it(by the way, thanx for the compliments about mine).

Too much "island for me" meant that I spend a year a few decades ago in Senegal, where we were at that time only able to hear some Youssou N'Dour, and Caribbean music, for a year. I can not anymore, sorry.

Format, format,... I prefer "breaking rules things". Everything or quite so as already be done in this small world. If prefer the ones who changes things, and it's the way you intend to put it at the first place.
Sorry that "the" Queen isn't thankful.

I think we had visited the same museum. I was there 2 years ago, enjoying : Cesar Manrique's work(the one who designs the traffic circles and has made so many moving or not statues), the coolness of the place, the heat, the sea (which is an ocean), not to forget, the coolness of the place. Peoples there are that great.
And what an island

I see you're east in Britain. Being a little more south/west, we could have been neighbors, just separate by a little channel.
I'm moving to https://hearthis.at/, Soundcloud looking not in a good health. Let's know if we make any better. Bye

PS : Excuse my english
