It’s finally done. This is a jazz cue for a short film.

This is the INSTRUMENTAL version.

This song also accompanies a massive score I did for this film. I tried to recreate something that is similar to popular jazz music you would hear from 1940s noir films.

Interestingly enough, the lyrics and form of the song had much to do with the concept of the film and the actual timing of the picture itself. In this case I partially wrote it as a song-underscore.

I had a great opportunity working with very talented musicians throughout the whole process and made some great new friends along the way as well.

Players:
Vocals – Laila M. Smith

This is golden! Im picturing the sound of rain in the background. Warmly lit cobble stone streets and cosey cafes.

I dig this. Everything blends together so well.
This is the perfect kind of mood music for writing Noir.

Of all the cafes in all the world she had to walk into mine.
I see a black and white cafe, smoke rolling gently out of a woman's mouth, feels like a noir flim, i would have given it 5 stars but it just feels like something is missing that i cant put my ear to, still great work everybody who put in.

What's missing here are the vocals that are taken out because this is the instrumental version. Glad you liked it. Check out the ORIGINAL VERSION with vocals sometime, I linked it in the description above. Nice imagery there as well! Thanks for the review.
