|"Tippytoes" by abzwork||8 days ago|
|Sweet vocals, phat bass, singeing leads and drums are right in the pocket at all times|
|Flowerpot by Euphoria||12 days ago|
|Ending comes too soon, was just getting harmonically interesting!
I hope that 8 years has found some new knowledge and inspiration to make some new songs!
What's the new band name? Maybe you could have re spelled Rye to Rï or just gone with Canadian Whiskey
|Laudamus Te by ZipZipper||12 days ago|
Absolutely brilliant! The singing feels pretty "reined in" in a close miked sort of way, although there are hints during the more fortissimo bits at how the voice sounds opened up. The standard for pop vocals, as well as singer/songwriters to jazz, is to be right on the mic for an intimate effect, but this style calls for a more bel canto full voice setting, I think. I am not criticizing your voice as your vocal chops are really great, the melismatic bit is really cool, just thinking that if you backed off of the mic the dynamics would all move up a notch or two; but maybe the legit classical sound is not what you want . . . also always fascinated by your work!

|Donald Trump to Ground Control by thenownows||29 days ago|
|Missed this when it came out at the pertinent time. Still relevant, and good, brilliant lyrics!|
|In The Rain (VIMH) by becwil||1 month ago|
|Some interesting sounds and textures here, a new sandbox to play in! I like the counterpoint between the lead voice and the accompaniment voice and the pentatonic nature of the material makes it very accessible. My suggestion would be to have a bass part that is independent of both the lead and accompaniment voices that outlines the fundamentals of the harmony as there is maybe a little too much octave doubling of the bass and accompaniment part. This marks a new and interesting direction for you and well received ^ it seems.|
|Wishes by lyla||2 months ago|
|Hey @lyla nice work!
The "space"* is very powerful. A strong form with sensible tonal chords make a versatile framework for a wide range of potential subsequent expressions from hip hop to ballad. I think you're on to something!
*brilliant how it prepares the surprise ending!
ps sorry I'm late . . .
|Moonflower(Santana Cover) by Zzyzxx||2 months ago|
This nails the latin vibe. Nice groovy song as a platform for soloing!
|Neat Bossa Audition L4 by Xolv||2 months ago|

Sounds great! Retro "Manciniesque" accompaniment. I love the ornaments you added to the vocal part. Lovely voice (bel canto heaven), rare in contemporary music.
|this too by guitardogcar||6 months ago|
|An "of the ages" topic, solid song structure, amiable and sincere delivery . . . yah, I believe!|
|Automatonophobia by ZipZipper||6 months ago|
Wow, impressive orchestration, blown away by the arco string arrangements!
A little distracted by the glitchy spaces, thought it was a buffering issue at first.
So musical, the piano at the end, perfect!

|Shades of Green by ozgurcanalkan||8 months ago|
Global colours and rhythms shifting, wondrous horn playing. I like this a lot!
|"I Feel You" by abzwork||9 months ago|
Drum 'n bass, reminds me of Jojo Mayer. Signature octave displacement in the bass, altered horn and guitar lines; I like the clean and nylon guitar sounds for contrast and the aux bells and percussion. Maybe tail out the ending gong with a fade would be my only suggestion . . . fab work!

|Impathogen #1 by DJShadowkat||10 months ago|
Cool rhythms, expansive tones, righteous build!
Peace and carrots!
|"My Love.."(Bday set) by abzwork||10 months ago|
Hey Erin, I like this a lot: interesting groove displacement in the drums that resolves once the other rhythm parts enter; enjoying the space in the horns versus the extreme extended lines in the guitar; most of all I liked the ensemble harmony horn interjections, you should do more of that, man! Like a Big Band! Cool stuff, best wishes! Happy belated birthday/father's day/solstice!

|"The Flava Sava" by abzwork||1 year ago|
Cool brush beat, massive bass indeed, singing lead lines
|Storm In The Garden by DJShadowkat||1 year ago|
Rediscoveries are always fun such as this jammy sortie, lots of transitions and changes of landscape in this story. I have a bad case of on-to-the-next-thing-osis, not good for getting stuff finished but good for lots of yet languishing projects on various drives. Enjoyed your piece, Happy birthday, Mark! From your friend OWHG#1
|WHERE WE SEE by ldecarmine||1 year ago|
A cool piece of blues tinged jazzage!

|Electric Lala Land - are you experienced?
|Cose Sospese by MusicLeft||1 year ago|
|A beautiful thoughtful piece with Spanish overtones.
Also love the painting, the draperies and fabric are amazing, hard to do! I've been in some photography duels before but a painting duel is really to the next level! I'd like to see the painting she did of you . . .
|Darkness by Mysteria||1 year ago|
|A beautiful song, sad but beautiful.
Give yourself credit for the playing though, not "only loops"!

@DJShadowkat Hahaha, thanks for your listen and kind complements, especially the "grey" part!

|pee wee (Tony Williams) by mre||1 year ago|
|Thanks @Jacalore, that is my little pocket trumpet . . .|
|Joe's no Schmo by ffej55||1 year ago|
You've captured the WR vibe perfectly with the shots, the backing searching harmonies, the spaciness; but this reaches forward to the present with the brilliant scratch voices and soundscapes. Love the bass work!
We all miss you Mr. Zawinul but you live on in your music and inspiration!
|Hard Knocks (Squishy Mix) by DJShadowkat||1 year ago|
|I love being stuck in a groove, the full body equivalent of an ear worm! Trancy and dancy, arranged with just enough breaks and changes to maintain contact; darn cool!|
|Saint Thomas by mre||1 year ago|
|Thanks, @zincshed I'm lucky to get to play with such players!|

|On The Sunny Side of the Street by zincshed||1 year ago|
|Well scored, a curious mix of traditional ragtime and dixie with a few chromatic post-bopisms thrown in. A great way to really get to know a piece.|

|Face the Dragon (Version 2) by elfdaughter||1 year ago|
|Lots of great ideas here, the "vocal" sound is stellar, love that long reverb tale at the opening. Not sure of the purpose of the piece––sounds like it would fit as a soundtrack for a visual sequence in a movie or game. Enjoyed.|
|Eleven Commandments by eftos||1 year ago|
Brilliant! What if Zappa, the Chipmonks, UK and King Crimson got together to jam?
|Slam Bang by Neumuzik||1 year ago|
|Some serious twang goin' on!|
|I Cant Quit You Baby (Willie Dixon via Led Zeppelin) by Tony2008||1 year ago|
|An interesting re-imagining of this rock classic. Let's not forget the contributions to this band of John Paul Jones whose harmonic and rhythmic underpinning brought the auditory pyrotechnics of Jimmy Page, fat pockets of John Bonham and lascivious wailings of Robert Plant into a cohesive whole . . .|
|A WAY by ldecarmine||1 year ago|
|Crisp and clear presentation. Cool guitar solo.|
|Suspended Modulation #1 (Remix 2015) by DJShadowkat||1 year ago|
|Can there ever be too much bass? I like it when the bass gives a clear outline to the harmony, as in the repeated ascending figure. Interesting panning noise ending. You raise an interesting issue for mixing as our hearing is certainly affected by sinus congestion; it would be an interesting investigation as to how congestion affects perception of various frequencies. The bass was full in this mix, but not overly so.|
|The Shadowkat Mud Stomp by DJShadowkat||1 year ago|
Foot stompin with lots of technical goodies. I especially like the chromatic distorted bass lick!
I'll get to the other two . . .
|Sea Shore Jazz 1 by abzwork||1 year ago|
|Before The Humans Came by AlHughson||1 year ago|
|Gorgeous piece, glad you're back on track!|
|Red Highway by Argales||1 year ago|
|Interesting extended harmonic backgrounds. Solid clave based rhythm in the bass that is finally revealed at the end. Drum part should be (IMHO) subservient to the bass part, I feel. The bass drum is a 2-3 clave initially but then switches to a 3-2 then the snare echoes, at one point briefly hinting at 12/8... all very complex but distracting. Would like to hear a simple more spacious drum part that works with the simple effective bass figure. Always enjoy your sense of form, the way you put the various elements together. Hope you don't mind my criticism, it's intended constructively.|
|2 Million Light Years From Home by DJShadowkat||1 year ago|
|Nice piece, very clear sounds.
I hear you on the Apple front, now that Steve's not around... There is something to be said for staying with something that works for you, when you use an obsolete platform at least you cannot be railroaded into an upgrade that takes away features. The newer machines lack connections such as firewire for which one may have invested in outboard gear.
I use a 128 GB SSD as a working drive for its supposed tolerance for the writing and re-writing demands of tracking audio; it never occurred to me that it should fail since there are no moving parts but I appreciate the heads up and will do a backup.
|"Believe In Yourself" by abzwork||1 year ago|

|One nighter by macoconuts||1 year ago|
|Empty Carrots by kyrka||1 year ago|
|Cool song, great energy, interesting production ideas.
Sounds like the song wants to surge ahead of the drum beat a bit which may be a bit too slow for the song, tempo is so crucial to the groove... If this "flowed out of you", then maybe you can have another go with a crisper tempo, and some real drums... I'll be interested to see how the song progresses.

|Alimahru" by abzwork||1 year ago|
|Diggin this! Lots of new ideas, funky bass lines, dueling saxes, new (Sternesque?) guitar sounds -- arrangement has lots of room to breathe with the spaces that open up. Well done!|
|Sit Down Darlin' - Spin Me Around Darlin' by MoorNoki||1 year ago|
|Mod and retro at the same time, cool and catchy!
Spinning records was fast becoming anachronistic, nobody spins mp3's, ACC's, WAV's...
