This is a short cool and jazzy film cue recorded live in the studio.

This track 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. This cue is similar to something you'd hear in a Pink Panther type scene.

The part in the film where this plays is pretty short, hence the short track length. I didn't really feel the need to make a fully extended version of this like I did with the other main song with vocals.

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.

Haha, I enjoyed this very much! :D It's very cool and catchy. I love the instruments, especially those vibes at :06 and other places. The solos at :12, :18, and :23 really added a lot to the piece. It's too short, though - it might make a good loop. I've noticed you haven't really been uploading many full-length tracks recently, but that's okay if it's your style. I imagine this on the title screen of a videogame based around mystery/discovery/puzzles, etc. You definitely captured the Pink-Panther mood well. I applaud you for recording it live - it really helps do the genre and time period you based this piece around honor. Excellent work! ;D

Thanks for your review! This track actually was for a short film, which is what usually dictates a lot of the work I do in terms of style and as you mentioned; track length. Same with video game music. I don't really write music just for the sake of writing something these days when I have a lot of contract work to do with strict deadlines. If you want, you can check out more of my jazz stuff on my site: http://www.matthewpablo.com/jazz there's also a ton of other stuff as well. Thanks again!
