Positive Comments: A great soundtrack! A slow build with tons of interesting nuances and instrumentation throughout the tune that keep you hooked and waiting for what’s yet to come. Bravo!

Constructive Comments: I gotta hear it yet again. Love it. Perhaps some warm/analog compression on master bus to hug/glue things together a bit, but I’m just nit picking… sounds fine and truly enjoyed it.You take good care,Billy

Reviewer: CAEDMON’S DREAM

Positive Comments: * Keyboards and vocals stand out* String lines are clear and lush* A “Disney” musical feel* Nice performance and production!

Constructive Comments: + Adding one more musical element in the bridge (ex. bass, cymbal rolls, or other) could help it stand out+ non-diatonic chord change in piano intro threw me off (not really there in verse or chorus is it?)+ key modulation could be effective for last chorus melody line stays constant and can get repetitive+ very nice tempo change for ending+ I like this piece alot, I hope my comments don’t sound negative.

Hana II by Marc S. Pate

Broadjam Artist: Marc S. Pate
Song: Hana II

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

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.
