An ethno-jazz project, Anghel Marc on kaval and Petre Scafaru on saxophone.
Me on trumpet, piano and ... stuff (bass and drums programing)
The wind instruments i used:
Kaval - a very old folk flute from the Balkans, notably Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania and Turkey, played by Marc Anghel
I think the oriental "exotic" sound is given by kaval and also by having 7/8 time signature, wich is quite odd in jazz but quite common in Balkan area
I use also modes are from that area ... and all the song is dressed up in a jazz concept

This starts with the drum to set the groove, so , have patience ;)



you used one of my countries national instrument and it fits perfectly with your trumpet and sax.nice one

I'm glad that you like it :)
Thanks for review.

Truly awesome!

This is one hell of an inspiring song. It's so rich in culture, it gets immersive, as that I can't hear nothing else when I start listening it.

I've listened it regularaly for the past year, and it's come to help me understand the musical culture of the region. Doing so, I'm currently basing my term composition project on mid-eastern music, of wich the first part will soon be posted here.

But last friday, my friend gave me a challenge to make a modal jazz in 7/8. I immediatly thought about your song, and even after not listening it the whole time, I still think it sounds alot like your song.

Well, I don't know that much about jazz to say something very developed...
I'm just going to say that I loved it...=D
Awesome song...

Hey, thanx for the ton of reviews man.
I'm glad that you like my music :)


It's oh so good to hear real original music for once, played by real people; instead of all this electronic stuff made with prerecorded, packaged sounds that people try to pass off as jazz on newgrounds.
Now that I'm done my short rant, here's what I think:
Very nice use of ethnic sounds and styles.
The kaval did cut in a bit though, its sound is very dark compared to the trumpet and sax, but it worked out!

Thanx for review.
There are some more people who have recordings "for real" here:
No1r, spamwangler, nutrumpet, SSM-NW, porksoda, Sonofkirk and a nice Funk/Hip-Hop band, BaraPaLatsas.
