I really enjoyed that little drum solo area in the center of the song. Those are also some stanky jazz chords for sure.

pretty nice jazzy mood overall. How did you play and record those drums?

The drums are all sequenced in Live; I just noodled around until it sounded somewhat jazzy. I then applied some swing and manually tweaked the velocity. Finally, I added some slight randomization on the swing and velocity to humanize them.

Well now I just downloaded all of the Spitfire LABS. Great sound man!

The beginning part had a melancholy feel and sounded like it could have been a soundtrack for Charlie Brown exiting the baseball field in defeat.  The horn part somehow cheers things up a little bit to my ears.  Nice job all around.

this is smooth as hell but also giving me some inspiration to use more slow brass like this. Lovely sounding all the same. I would just mention that the song felt as though it ended rather abruptly; I wasn't ready for it to be over yet.

Very nice. I didn't know about Spitfire LABS, I'll look into that since I don't have loads of money to put into plugins... You made that sounds excellent. Drums are very well programmed.

The drums sound fantastic, great dynamics in this. Clears the clouds from my mind smile
