I really like the trumpet and piano combination. Reminds me heavily of Final Fantasy III which I have been playing a lot of lately. The tune kind of just makes me think of walking into a bar for the first time in a gloomy feeling atmosphere as well.
The piano is really soft and the trumpet sounds great as well. If I could I would simply make it twice as long but sound the same. Very good work on this.

Thanks for the nice review!
Happy you like it, I did put quite a bit of effort into making the best chord progression possible. Haven't been playing any FF anytime recently, so I don't quite remember that, I'll go check it out in a few.
As I said to the previous poster, next semester, I'll be playing this song and many more, so expect this song to be at least 5 times longer!
Thanks again for the review!
This is something I imagine at the end of a video game. The princess is saved, the town is back to normal, the dragon is dead. There's a certain kind of relief that this song brings about, almost a cathartic experience.
The sax sounds really smooth, and I enjoyed the few touches of eighth (or what I assume to be eighth) notes, just to cut things up a bit. They added a bit of a kick to parts that would have otherwise been bland.
I don't think you need much else. The song sounds very finished; any other instruments or percussive devices would either be tacky or simply extraneous. I could listen to this if I wanted to zone out for a little while, but it would have to be a touch longer. Good job.

Thanks for the great review!
Lol, if I see your image the same way you do, than it would probably follow my other song Boss Battle!
The sax sound you here is actually a viola, but I thought it did sound like a smooth sax, so I kept it as is.
An eighth (or straight eighths, as you probably meant) is a for of metric used when you play, straight eighths being the opposite of swing.
I'm guessing thought that you saw the previous commenter below you and wanted to cheer me up, without even knowing what he was talking about. I appreciate the intention though, and I wont pull a grunge on you. ;)
Again, thanks for the great review, and fear not: the song is simply short because it's only one form (complete chord progression), but I'll do this song and many more at my next semester at school, and it'll then be MUCH longer.
Straight eighth notes do not belong prominently in Jazz; I just can't give this a high rating in this category.
I'm sorry, but straight eighths DO belong in the Jazz category, you simply haven't listened to enough REAL Jazz.
Jazz has so much distinct categories, that things you thought were something else are actually part of it. Things such as Bossa Nova (Blue Bossa, Black Orpheus(SS20 did a great version of this)), Third-Stream (Dave Brubeck, the master of the genre (Take Five, Blue Rondo à la Turk)), Latin Jazz (Caravan, Watermelon Man), and many others, all in Straight Eighths.
My song goes in the Ballad category, wich is for the most part in straight eighths, and I'm pretty sure i know what I'm talking about when I say this song goes in the Jazz category.
So next time, please make sure what you say is actually revelant to anything, or that you're actually positive about what you're saying.
As usual, your composition is fantastic, however, I must be honest with you. I've noticed that a lot of your compositions have a tendency of sounding too generic. I'm not sure if it's just the software you use or what, but the instruments you use always SOUND computer generated, and to me that's their biggest downfall in my personal opinion. If you could find some better instruments I would honestly find your music far more pleasant, as your composition skills are excellent.
Now that that's out of the way, the song here is great. It flows very smoothly and sounds very calming - almost sounds like a 16 bit song to me lol. Other than the fact that it totally sounds computer generated, the melody is great. I like the song name as well :)
Keep up the good work.
Thanks alot for the nice review!
Thanks for the nice words, goes right to my heart. :)
The reason why they sound so generic sounding is because I don't use a sequencer to write my pieces, rather a notation software, wich doesn't really let me choose the sounds, since it can only use the sounds generated by the computer, since he's the one playing it.
Other than that, thanks again for all the nice words!
