Hi everyone. It's been a while since I've uploaded anything, and if it's because I was busy elsewhere, it's also because the making of this piece took its own sweet time and was quite a journey of its own - talking of which.

I feel deeply honored to have it star Paul Anderson on the soprano saxophone and Tom Devine, aka FullCircle, on bass, who joined in near the end of the project on my request - after doing an outstanding job on an upcoming collaboration that also stars Jay Hagen on the flugelhorn.

I've always been a big fan of the soprano sax and it's a delight to have Paul play it here with his inventive and soulful, sensitive touch. Thanks Paul for joining in and adding to this piece a whole new dimension with your wonderful playing. Collaborating with you has been a true pleasure.

Tom, thanks to you for enlivening the minimalist pseudo bass track I had done initially for the main groove, using my guitar-synth. You made a bass line that, while keeping with the spirit of what I had found, brought it to a new level with its rhythmic sense and fine tone. Through all the collaborations we did so far, it's been a real pleasure too working with you.

For the record :

Paul Anderson - soprano saxophone
Tom Devine - bass
Me - electric guitar, guitar-synth, keys with String Studio and drum tweaks

And lastly, thanks to the seagulls for their sampled cries.

Enjoy.

Raving, I know. That 'baroque violin' I used

Wow! Spellbinding track. Gentle soft deep drones like waves and seagulls with beautiful "Celtic" melodic part. Lovely guitar tone and sensitively embellished. Then it gets jazzy/funky with excellent bass guitar jamming against the choice drums. The guitar chords here are way cool jazz chords. There's great guitar soloing too with fast runs and attractive clean tone. Superb timbre on the soprano sax, and expert phrasing and great feel. Everybody playing with awesome feel and style. The mix is really clear and clean too.

So glad I saw your link in the Official Song Plugging Thread this afternoon! I really love this - so wonderful to hear the three of you together and each of you brought so much to this that it's impossible to separate your work - just gorgeous. The seagulls are a very tasty addition but it's the music that makes them shine. I so wish I could just hear this every time I'm walking on the beach or, more importantly, walking through the concrete jungle of my life. It's exciting and calming at the same time, which I think is brilliant. Every bit of it is beautiful.

Hey Elaine. I enjoy writing intros, obviously. Guess for me it's part of the joy of sharing here with you, telling something about how a piece came about - and it's especially true in the case of a collaboration.

Thanks for listening and

Fred here, from Parc Lafontaine.

Great work, very relaxing and deep. Love the seagulls, they sooth my restlessness. Your guitar work dropped me from my chair! I started with this song but I intend to browse upward until I've heard everything! I'll give 5 stars overall because I'm in awe in front of the complexity of your work. The concept, creativity and performance are top notch so it's well deserved. To MY standards, the production is A-1, by the way.

Flawless!

Ohhh! How could I miss this!! It is one of the best performances I never heard here. Wonderful from the first to the last note. Love the beautiful progressing from the first to the second movement (to me there's some intersting influence from Pat Metheney Group...).Soprano and guitar solos are totally enjoable A mervellous collaboration.
Eccellente!

Maestro Pedro - as our dear friend Paul would have it - I'm glad you discovered and enjoyed this.

Metheny. Yes, there's no denying for me the Metheny influence on my composing and playing - he's an all-time favorites of mine. I could add Lyle Mays too - one of my favorite piano player, with Jarrett - as in fact a lot of the music of Metheny's group has always been a collaboration between them.
