Wow, this is a nice experiment in what you can do in time signatures. It is very busy and it has got a very 70's Progressive Rock atmosphere in it.

The sound of the guitars and the organ are exactly that 70's sound. Think it's influenced totally by that time.

Nice to go back in time for some minutes.

Perfectly done! So tight. I like the drums/percussions too and the change around 1:30. It's more regular for a moment with more electronica.

2:35: Busy and restless. Feels like a turbulent story you are telling, full of action.

And then, suddenly, it's over. I had the feeling that we were not at the end of that story yet, but I enjoyed being in it.

(It's 3 year and 7 months since you got your latest comment here.)

Very cool intro and synth. The sax is beautiful throughout. Great dreamy track. Nice bass track propelling the music. Enjoyed reading your 'About the Song' notes. Your first upload with new DAW is a beaut. I wonder what it must be like to produce such beautiful music. It makes the heart ache to hear it. It is magic indeed!

So glad that you "peu a peu" revisit your tracks, .....!!

This one my friend, really deserves the upper place. A sovereign control all over the tune: rythmic/harmony/melody/breaks everything perfectly handled and produced. Great bass, immediately followed by the Sax intro. Latin opening with a sweet classic guitar arpeggios, the sax lead is so smooth and warm embedded in that mid tempo, a pleasure to listen to. One have the impression that the sax is telling a story here......and I listen to this story, enjoying the magic atmopsphere. AAHHH, what a chilling moment thanks to your "Street Magic" Al! smile :)

Marvelous music, Mr. Jazzy Al my hat off to you!

Awesome! A very interesting, key-centric track. A building of foreboding and tension - this music would work as sound track material IMHO. Hey, where's the sax, horns and boogie? Another side of Mr. Massey - compositional wizardry and musical mysticism.

The moodiness is palpable in this arrangement Al,
I would call it a mixture of wistful edginess and enveloping intrigue..
Love the entire presentation.
Nice, nice, nice!

It is always good when some "old" tracks are pushed to the top my friend: this is a different shape of your musical style Al, so misterious and deep, but one thing is always to pick up in your works Al, your fantastic rythmic (dynamic) talent.....starting from a quiet slow piano line ( really elegant lines ), growing into a crescendo with all the intruments ( beautiful Synths ), landing on a fast drum part but then suddenly turned down in rythm/instrumentation toward the outro ( at 4:47)....Dynamic on its best form.

Nice and inspirational track, well done Al!! smile :)

Hi Al ...

You are very creative. Your music always captivates me and your talent is unequaled. Smooth, relaxing yet full of energy. Your mixing and production is equally good as your performance. Loved that short slap bass solo! Splendid!

You took it back to "Square One" with this track Al! Now I know that's your vocals, enhanced or not! The keyboard work is awesome. Different, warm, round tone to the sax here - awesome. Love the horn at the 2:01 bridge and the guitar work (solo & rhythm) following. I listen to my music and I find many ways it could be better but I honestly don't know how your music could be done any better - and that's one of the reasons I call you Professor! Awesome!

My favourite kind of Jazz and very smooth. Makes you want to dance this one, very groovy! I'm always waiting for your sax playing on your songs......some very nice vocal harmonies.....and there it is, very expressive and beautifully meshed with the arrangement in a kind of question and answer. Nice!

Another great piece from your hand. This is so well produced and played, that it could be done in any professional studio.
The Jazzy/funky style is really hard to capture, if you are not really able to play it right, but you nail it perfectly. Really great stuff!
