Cool and smooth but with just the right amount of edge - the guitar feedback, the funk, the killer changes, and that sax... Oh yeah! So many great sounds and combinations, so good you probably need a license to create this class of music.

I agree, the synth patches are very cool (especially starting at the 39 sec mark). Very slick and frosty cool vocal track. That sax is seductive in it's embrace. A nice hip funk solo starting at 3:43. It's a masterful track that is beautifully played and produced Al. Shush, Master Class in Session!

Wonderful! A smooth, sophisticated groove with a chilled out vibe. I like the addition of the vocals, amazing sound from the sax and superb keys. Very soulful, and the production is first class - just like something from a very high end multi-million dollar studio.

Very relaxed and smooth. I like that "sliding" synthesizer (for example on 0:30) very much. It's bringing mystery, something unusual, in this track, for me.

Have to listen again. There is a very slow building up, introducing the elements one by one. I like the "screaming" sound at 0:41 as well. Is it a guitar-like synth? There is a tension as well, like something could happen every moment.

The change at 1:32 is relieving. There is coming in a kind of funky 70's sound, but that synth keeps on sliding (contact to the modern times?). The key change at 1:32 is a good touch too.

Another change at 2:06, key change. Voices coming in.
A key change at 2:44 as well. The synth keeps on sliding. Basses are very strong too, all the time.

2:59: Sax is coming in, your signature sound. Clapping hands. An improvising synth seems to have a conversation with the sax. Together they are going to the end.

Wow, this is VERY catchy, like sweets for your ears.
Al, I think it's one of your best (again).
Very good job!

I LOVE IT!!! big grin :D

What an intro... so groovy and open ( a playground for melodies!! ), finest choice of synth sounds here, outstanding touch with the right measure of hall/reverb to let sound the lead part spacey and floating ( just like I love it!).

First break at 1:31 getting set for the key change at about 2:00: fx-vocals introducing a slightly funky teint to the tune ( fine funky guitar), then the sax is walking on...... yes warm and jazzy interchanging later on with a synth-bass (octaved?) lead part: great idea!! Voluptous sound and vamp, with less rythm focussed arrangement as not usual, but indeed with a major soul feeling and sofisticated art!!! Marvelous one Mr. Jazzy Al!! big grin :D

Wow! This is such an awesome sounding progressive rock tune.
I just love everything about this one, except its a bit too short. It should be at least 30 minutes. smile :) But on the plus side its a song that i can listen to several times and still discover something new and interesting each time. Im listening to it for the 3rd time in a row now and i will listen to it more cause this thing is huge! Sounds like you put a lot of time and hard work into this one and it really paid off.
Absolutly awesome and amazing work Al!
