This song is not in a battle


same deal as "Habitat":

What kind of music would you say this is?
Who does it remind you of?

and yes, I do know it falls apart and doesn't really have a clean ending... again, so far it's just a sketch

figured the BandAmp community, if anyone, would let me know where I stand.

tks!

This is music from the past!  It reminds me of a band called Karma, who were sort of funk/jazz-ish.  Very good interesting sounds that get a bit much when you listen to the whole album (the one I have is called "Celebration")

Basically though, I think you've got a a pretty nice bit of music.  A few mixing issues that don't spoil the listening experience - lovely sounding trumpet especially - very well played with loads of feeling.

Finish it - it's good

ok I like the jazz blues thing... but I don't like the drum beat. it's too loud and too dry... maybe put some effects to it, and head toward the typical lounge? anyway, rest of the instrumentals, feel & construction AOK... job well done

Nice!

This would have made my day.. if not for the drums. They didn't really fit (IMO). I kept wanting to hear a nice gentle ride cymbol, kind of keeping things moving.

The trumpet sounded very nice, and I liked the electric piano. maybe some jazz bass...?

nice song.

HEY...

is anyone listening to this just on their PC speaker? I tried this at work and suddenly realized there's no KEYS in it when you do that! Guess the keys are panned to the left and a PC speaker is only one channel...

?

there's supposed to be a pretty harmonic line under everything!

woo. that might make a difference to some people's listening experience!

"smooth jazz" is a general enough term.  I agree with others that would prefer a real drum, simply for the emotional communication it imparts.  You blow a great horn though, I love your subtle touch.  The 'two and three' piano part reminds me of waves of different intensity coming to shore.

"smooth jazz"? argh! like Kenny G or Marlan Wayans or something...? aack!

I was listening to this track again on a friend's stereo yesterday, and we decided the drums are decidedly Radiohead-influenced: think "Amnesiac"... and something in me has stopped hating drum sequencing as much as I once did.

But live we'll have both loops and a drummer.

I like this track.
Smooth Jazz is about as close as you're going to get I think.
As aposed to Puppet I like the drum beat. Thought there was something wrong with the upload at first but then realized that wasn't the case.
Don't know though, maybe it needs softening a bit. Leave it out of the intro maybe so people don't realize it so much and therefore actually apreciaate the song instead of just thinking,"That drum beats getting anoying".
Really though, I like this. The sort of music I love but never got into as a kid so don't know any band names.
Anyway, bout a 60% me thinks. It needs lengthening and some small adustments then I'll wack it up to an 80%,

Sorry, I'm a geologist.  Geologists call clay with vugs in it "vuggy clay".  I suppose you could call it electro-acoustic jazz, but that would lump you in with a whole new cast of characters.  The best definition of Jazz I have heard is  "it is improvised;  it swings."  As long as your drums are not improvised, you lose some of the power of jazz: it is "smoothed" if you will.

ah. okay. fair enough. and my next tune will, of course, be called, Vuggy Clay. Or perhaps Cluggy Vay. and yes, I think maybe this isn't even really jazz anymore... not much improv happening, after all.

Moses, I'm curious what you mean by you "thought there was something wrong with the upload..."? you mean the drums at the beginning sound oddly stunted? cause I tried to make it purposely ambiguous at the outset so it's really solid by contrast when everything comes together...
