Teamed up with RubyD again and had her take the lead on this one. She came through faithfully, as expected.
Yeah, i can be a romantic **sometimes**.

Thank you so much, Elaine!

Very cool singing. Love the phrasing those long notes. Very attractive!
Super bass and guitars in the band. Even a trombone.

thanks xolv! I think Elaine done good.
I question the sobriety of that trombonist, though...
a cupla too many martinis maybe.

Smooth, phat bass. Love RubyDu's performance (her backup singers are super, too). Cool walk out with your voice joining in at the end, Sammy.

Real nice tune and production.

@imekia
Thanks much Chris.

@becwil

my vocs could have been a tad louder there at the ending, but did you catch the nod to Roxy Music?

@kcsgroove

Ruby and the Rubettes shined.

I'm becoming a fan of Ruby's vocals ... very nice and superb when all the Ruby clones sing the harmonies .. original approach to the music ... you're doing some interesting stuff on the guitars ... addictive brush kit?.... Bryan Ferry dropped in ... excellent ... yes, a tad louder.
Latin jazz makes you feel so good.

Man, Roob's voice is genre perect and those harmonies....yeah, baby. Dig the instrumentation and arrangement. I would have loved to hear some kind of solo (trombone, preferably) in the second middle eight break (2:04-2:20) leading into the next verse, but that's just my personal thoughts. Killer tune, nonetheless. Great creation. Hat's off to Harper.

@gadzooks
thanks gadz. I've always had a soft spot for Latin flavored music. Particularly Salsa and Bossa N.

EDIT: Noticed I didn't answer your question: No, not AD, but real drums.

@Bigjumslade
where were you when i needed you??!!

Very nice to hear something from you Sammy. Elaine has that Sade quality. Interesting cord progressions. Drums and bongo's well done. Yeah I heard that lounge lizard under the heat lamp.

Sergio Mendes & Brasil 66
Stan Getz AND Joao Gilberto
Ulli Boegershausen
Cal Tjader - Soul Sauce
Carlos "Patato" Valdes
And many, many, more!
Perfect match of talents
Latin Jazz vocals are flawless, Elaine is front center stage, entertaining the crowd.
Very authentic mix & performance, perhaps not intentional but this sounds like a 1964 recording in the latin jazz lounge! Luv that trombone. The dynamics are everywhere!

@scaustrita
hey Steve. And good ears, yes i did try to give it a congested club tone and also used a "jazz club" convolution reverb over the whole thing. Before Elaine came on board, the music was too clean and modern sounding, so I tried to dirty it up.

Except for Ulli Boegershausen, all those other artists already are in my collection. Gotta check out Ulli.

They sound like real drums... are you playing them? Where's the kit ... you know, my first impression was that they were real but because there was no mention of drums ... the closet thing I have heard to drums that sound so organic is addictive. Anyhow, that makes this song even more impressive.

@Gadzooks
i couldn't drum if my life depended on it! If I recall back when I first did this, I used a drum library I had at the time where you pieced the parts together. After I got AD those were deleted. AD filled all my needs since.

hey brew. I knew when I asked Elaine on board that I wanted to do the song as well as I could.
Looks like she's rubbing off on me in a good way: "Have fun, be nice, do good." That credo makes our little community more enjoyable.

...but i'm still prone to honesty...
my dysfunction.

Very nice to hear you sing a latin jazz song like this one. It fits your voice very well. Lovely vocal harmonies

Excellent composition and very well played instrumentally. I also love the way it is mixed. Good dynamics and the vocal balanced just right.

I knew before I clicked play that I would enjoy this and be entertained and I was right smiley I still think Ruby is underestimated as a great singer and Artist though I don't think they'll make that mistake much longer after you two have teamed up. Sammy is just a force of nature no matter how prepared you are he's gonna do his thing and have you in awe. I should of come to you guys for pointers on my slower Bossa Nova vibe.

@neumuzik
thanks Neu! I may be a Southern black man, but I love that Latin feel.

@jibes
hey Jibes. Ruby and I are half way thru an EP.

@kennethlavrsen
Appreciate that Ken. I was mixing this when Rube commented on my previous post. I thought right then that she should be the one on this one. So I removed my vocals (except at the end) and let her at it. I get tired of hearing just 'me' sometimes.

@Telemetry
thx Tel. looks like my slow pace is one song a month or more lately, but i'm glad i squeezed this one in.

@hiphopmoses
I'm a force of nature all right--freak nature. lol
thanks man, that genuinely made my evening. Maybe once I can be a bit more prolific, I'd love for us to duet. I think our combined voices would sound kinda cool.

@manfromtexas
much thanks to you MFT. this was an old song, but I re-recorded my guitars, added a new bass and horns, then remixed the whole thing with Elaine at the front. sounds like a whole new version now.

Wow, is there a little place to add something on this very nice song ? Crispy production, maybe a lack of bass (but I am listening with earphones), splendid performance from both of you.

Your @'s didn't work but luckily I came back for another listen smiley And I'd gladly collab anytime I just got to finish up State Basketball playoffs and maybe rest my voice a week to recover from all the yelling lol

luscious!! music has muscles, it's so solid.
truly one of your best sings, Ruby - great phrasing, strong delivery with amazing harmony.
would like to see lyrics - can't catch some: makes me wanna be what? that midway solo is so supreme, Sam = bass mixed so sweetly. this song's a winner top to bottom.

it seems, for some reason, to work if I type a "period", then hit enter, then do the @artisname. a few hoops, but it worked two out of three times as above.
