Jazz for James

This was composed by my friend via Cakewalk studio and he asked me to remix it for him.

Used Addictive Drums and a whole mess of soundfonts in FLStudio to make it. I looped this twice. Nothing extremely special here but its a nice easy listening piece. Hope you enjoy it.

Shaken Not Stirred!

Jazzy Electrical beat it's so god damn funkiness (That's a word in a dictionary:D I KNOW RIGHT?!) Good job, very upbeat tune ; Downside is about this song it needs to be more Dynamic (NOW IN STEREO) You know Dolby 7.1 but it's very good, this is what Daniel Craig listens to while he's boning the chick from Quantum Of Solace.


Peace bro, Continue with these funky-ass beats.

Nice jam!

I like the tune. Nice melody, nice bridge, nice groove.

Here's my criticism:
-Bass is just a little low in the mix. It's there (definitely not too bad), but not with the presence it should be.

-I understand if you layered sounds for the melody, but it makes it sound (to my ears) like two flutes playing in unison the whole time -and unison is a very heavy, monotonous sound. I would have them split on the second A section into harmony -even something simple like thirds would totally enhance what's going on.

-This is begging for some more right hand comping from the piano. You've got that great written part on the A sections, but when it gets to the bridge (actually a C section I think?) the piano should be answering the melody (something improvised). After all, there are only a couple chords. Feeding us that harmony again is unnecessary. Instead giving us melodic information pulls our ear toward the next section.

Very good work -keep it up!

Some nice criticism here. When I have the time to compose again, I'll revisit this piece and take your suggestions into consideration. Thanks!

Really Nice

i really aint a jazzy fan but this changes my mind lol

Fine composing, however...

...real instruments would make this a masterpiece! Maybe even some dynamic contrast and phrasing would make this piece soar. Your friend did a good job composing this piece, nonetheless.


I don't know what else could I say but this music piece is what I'd hear from a professional band or musician. Truly marvelous, makes me want to sit down in a cafe, looking at the beach on a mid sunny day.

Thank you for the kind words :)
