My rendition of Chick Corea's jazz standard "Spain". I play the alto sax, while the backing track is based on a midi file from http://www.notz.com/ , controlling some virtual instruments. There are some mistakes, but the sax part was recorded in one take, to keep it faiithful to the jazz spirit :)


Good lord man, I know I say this with just about anything Jazz related, but that was amazing... I love the saxophone in it. Maybe I just love jazz too much but that was the shit!

I don't think there's such a thing as 'loving ajzz too much' :) And thanks for the review!

I really love how the tunes go. It's very chilling and would totally brighten up one's day by just listening some bars of this piece. The melody might sound somewhat tangled up at some points but the overall impression never ceases to amaze me. :)

Thanks :) The piece is not mine, so you can blame Chick Corea for composing such a complicated tunes :P

I didn't notice any mistakes, then again I don't know the original song. Point being, it sounds great to the passerby listener. I am a little reminded of the old Cirque Du Soleil shows only because those soundtracks relied on the saxophone in some respects, plus the worldly feel in general. The background midi file sounds excellent actually, very realistic somehow. And of course your saxophone playing is charming and controlled. You sound like you've got a good grasp on how to handle the sax. Not much else to comment on other than keep on playing! I think sax is such a lovely instrument. Nice work here.

Thanks for review :)
I actually used some virtual instruments plugins to make it sound better than your everyday windows-generated midi.

This is lovely. Very well played sax! You've got some serious skill.
