Reviewer: Marc S. Pate

Positive Comments: Great feel! I like the instrumentation. Couldn’t decide if its country or blues but, then again there isn’t always a lot of difference. Either way, you did a great job with this one.

Constructive Comments: Very nicely done but, I kind of kept waiting for the whole band to kick in.

Positive Comments: Great intro this could be Earth, Wind, and Fire but then you settle into a Lee Ritenour vibe. Every instrument is in the pocket with great tone and super playing. If you told me that this was The Yellowjackets I’d believe it. Superb!!

Constructive Comments: Maybe the bass is too loud? That’s splitting hairs though. This is excellent work that should be on a Smooth Jazz radio program.

Positive Comments: This song is definitely high energy. The composition, recording, mix, and master are all top grade and professional.I hear a heavy late 70’s early 80’s New York influence in the composition. There is a gigantic fan base for this music today and I would think a composition like this would do very well in a TV show, movie, and or ad that might require this type of high energy music for the sound track. Vinyl is a show that comes to mind. The guitar playing is excellent and the tones are not too bright which is usually the pitt-fall that people fall into while trying to pay homage to this genre. Great Job!

Constructive Comments: NO critique here. This is a well done piece of music and great to have in any library. I enjoyed listening to it and I appreciate you sharing it. Pro all the way.

Positive Comments: Way slinky minor Blues feel here with some Jazz elements. Love the drums and atmospheric keys. There’s some really hot and interesting lead work that’s kinda Gary Moore school.

Constructive Comments: I’d take the flange of the guitar–to my ears it’s too harsh and effect driven. But keep that overdrive in. A cleaner tone would really let this sing. Check out some Robben Ford for a reference to exactly what I’m gettin at!
