Ooh, this sounds even better than the preview I got to hear!
The melody is very nice, and I think you used The Gentleman well! The tone really fits this style. I don't mind at all that its not jazz. I am not all too great at making almost fully positive compositions/arrangements like this, but you sure did a great job, with a cool main melody. I think my favorite part is the variation at 1:22 though! The melody is different enough, almost what I'd call "inverse" at some points, but it's still similar enough too to fit the style perfectly. The piano arrangement is interesting in that part as well.
The soft ending is nice too. Did you use Session Strings, or some orchestral ones for this? I rarely use Session Strings myself, but maybe I should use them more often!
Either way, I found the end result of this to be super enjoyable :)
I think I'll share this with LunacyEcho, just because I think he might like the style :p
Great job ^ ^
I also love the part at 1:22, it's my favorite melody in the song! I think "inverse" is appropriate, though that wasn't intentional. As usual with my piano compositions, I improvised as much as one can in a piano roll. I don't have enough patience to experiment with several variations and ultimately choose the best one, so I stick with the first ideas that sound nice, and I usually succeed at that at my first attempt.
I'm glad you like the piano arrangements. I get the ideas from your compositions, or rather what information I can recall from your compositions while I'm composing.
Thank you for the review! I hope he enjoys it too, because I know he loves catchy, super-happy music.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
