I am a Freak for this genre of music.......LOVE IT!! The arrangement is really sweet, love the instrumentation!! Love The Trumpet Player....solid playing Ma-Main-Man!!! The piano is HOT TOO!! This is a really tight composition!! The drummer is really feeling it too!! The Sax player is a God in his own right also............all around excellent tune.......Could listen to this all day & night long............

I thoroughly enjoyed the instrumentation.

Excellent piece going on here. All the right things happening. Great recording, a great band and a nifty arrangement. Has a home somewhere in the a swampy, sultry,bluesy film/tv listing. You've go the song in the right genre and that is good because NOT "casting" a song correctly can hurt as you try and find a home for it.

- Chet Nichols
The hook is also opening theme. Like that. Hard to believe this isn't a group. Sounds like great improv. work to me. It is kind, and laid back. The kind of stuff I should have hard wired into me. Pure pleasure.

I'm impressed with the level of musicianship involved on this song...the bass added some really cool lines...the sax was good but it had a little too much reverb for my tastes...drummer could have added a few more fills to lead into the different sections...this type of improvised blues is great for music libraries and music placement companies for use in movie and tv background or as the bed for an advertisement...good luck with it...I enjoyed listening...

Very cool jazzy bluesy piece. The piano, trumpet and sax are superb!
