    Really Great !

    -Michael (Only doing Live playing with my band, using Piano, etc, and SM and AM instruments by Breath controller, just did a first testing recording with The Trumpet. Already not bad, but the piece still needs some practicing...)

    On the first listen I was speechless and in awe. On the second listen I was still in awe but starting to sputter incomplete nonsense like "how the...", "woah...", "what, you gotta be...". On the third listen I was back to being speechless but this time kept looping that trumpet solo section at 2:30. Brilliant work. :) Thanks a lot for sharing this.

    @ModernBard: Glad you liked the trumpet solo! It took me a while to get that right. I was blocked for over a month on everything after 2:41. I kept trying stuff and discarding it, over and over. It either didn't fit the mood, or sounded too fake or too dissonant.. I was trying to capture the style of someone like Lee Morgan or Wynton Marsalis playing with Art Blakey. Not sure if I got exactly what I was after there, but I'm satisfied with the result. Oddly enough, I think my favorite bit of trumpet in this tune is the high pitched squeal that kicks off the drum solo at 3:21. :-)
