So here is something VERY out of the norm for me! I took up the challenge against my-self to craft a swinging, big-bandish Jazzy piece for my personal project; I steered away from creating anything with a strong ethnic flare, instead trying to keep my brass instruments from sounding like garbage. Now this is just meant to be a simple loop so there is no 'ending' to the song, though I may release an alternative version with the official ending.

I hope you enjoy it!! :D


Very-freeform vibe to it. Digging it. Certain parts sound a bit flat. The instrumentation is very nice. The reverb has a thing going on where it sounds awesome with certain instruments and messy with others. Those hats sound out of place with the rest of the song. I'd try better compression and kicking that bass up a notch. It's too quiet. Everything sounds a bit too centered. Nothing a little stereo widening and panning shouldn't fix.

All that stuff put aside for a second. I love the harmonics and progression this track has. Something that's hard to find in NG uploads.

Hello! Well you're right about centering; for a while my audio card was damaged and I only heard things in mono with a weird sort of compression going on; so getting back into the swing of using plenty of stereo-spreading is taking some practice. Yeah I can hear now the hats were very much out of place, I definitely need to go back and fix them. All of your points are VERY correct, I really appreciate the criticism, and the compliments my good man!

That flute and all the instruments were awesome, too bad the hats were coming too fast for me. The ending doesnt really matter because jazz has no melody element to it IMO.

A bit too fast? Yeah I was unsure if they were too quick but I really liked the melody, I may just half time it. Thanks a lot though!
