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 :)

Techno and Dance are my favorite genres, but I can still see the talent and skill that went into making this. Sounds amazing, just isn't my type of music. Still 5/5 and 10/10 though. :D

I'm glad that you like my music.

Very smooth...

I didn't know there was anything like this on Newgrounds.

This has a great feel to it. It makes it extremely easy for the imagination to see.

Thank you very much.

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

Quality stuff right here man

I've listen to this song for about a year about a thousand times but man this is good. I thought it would be fitting that i wrote a comment. Awesome music this is why I like the jazz genre.
