This for some reason (flying, sea, seagulls and idea of freedom) makes my wife to think more of Jonathan Livingstone ... oh well, I'll have to let you, I have a flight to catch :)

thanx for review, these nice words coming from a jazz musician weight quite a lot :)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Excellent !

This is a beautiful song, there's not a single part of it I didn't enjoy. The synths are also well arranged and mixed into the track. The melody is beautifuly composed and I liked the seagulls and the ambiental sounds because I think they add to the overall vision. This is one of the best tracks on Newgrounds.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

nice jazzy song

this is such a good jazz song i really like the saxophone part the most, the piano part was done very well, the drums and the transitions were done perfectly, take out the seagull part then it will be perfect. other than that i'm giving you a 10 out of 10 because it was a nice catchy jazz tune, and 5 out of 5 for doing such a perfect job on this song
