First album!  Accomplished a lot of goals including trying to mix and master it myself to see if I could.  It's not perfect but it was a lot of fun. 

Would appreciate any and all feedback!  It's available on Amazon, Google Play, Itunes, and CD Baby.

Got distracted now I'm back to share!  Surely there's at least one person in this forum that likes Jazz and Funk, even if there's no synth in sight!  ;)

Here's a funky track from the album in its entirety.  The keys is Radical Keys.  Reason Bass Refill and a Loop Loft loop with some added drumming from my fingers on my Pad Kontrol.  That's it!

Another funky track, this one featuring jazz guitarist, Jeffery Smith.  The Rhodes stuff is my stock Korg SV-1.  The organ is Selig's B3 refill and his Leslie.  Reason Basses and a Loop Loft groove for drums plus my fingers on the PadKontrol and a Kong or two.  The guitar is an Epiphone Swingster hollowbody through Kaussa' Vermilion amp and J/P Titus delay and a little TSAR-R reverb for taste.

Title track off the album.  Sort of a traditional jazz trio with a modern feel.  Got a polyrhythm thing going on with the drums as the drum tracks were in 3/4 or 6/8 and i'm using them on a 4/4 song.  Had to play the breaks on the padkontrol to get everything to match but it works and the off beats become the on beats and everything is divisible by 12 so it flows...  The piano is Reason Piano Yamaha.  Bass is the sampled acoustic bass hidden in the Recoustics refill from New Atlantis Audio.

not so keen on the third track sounds very general midi sounding unlike the other two . maybe I do not like the piano you have used in it but sounds no where like the other two to me .

The theme for the album was supposed to be "happy."  So Summer breeze works!
