Oh don’t get me wrong the bass does sound better to the left really, it just compliments the piano better to my ears as well as balancing it evenly with soprano/flute. The other pieces like this I heard also had the bass panned left. I remember on stage the bass player was to the right of the pianist, from the pianists perspective, so I guess it’s pretty standard. The balance between the instruments is good here, compositionally as well as the panning/levels.
All the performances are great really, so pass on my compliments to all three of you. I do like the sound of flutes and orchestral instruments though
I’ve heard the name Chick Corea, and maybe I have heard the music, but I’m not aware that I have at least. Perhaps you could suggest some artists to listen to? I really like this kind of stuff you’ve written here, but some of the noisier more busy jazz doesn’t do anything for me personally.
The soprano levels sounded fine to me. Overall a really good composition and performance.
Some parts do sound a bit Spanish, but overall I got more of a city at night vibe when listening. And as for Sex and the City, it was aimed at women as a comedy, but a lot of guys including myself find it hilarious too.
@cmaffia Like composing for any genre you need a good listening history of it. So the only way you’ll wrap your head around it is to listen to this stuff on a regular basis and learn how to play songs like this so you get used to the chord progressions and style of melody writing It’s easy to see how this would be composed from analysing it as a composer. But some of the jazz chords, progressions and colourings in there are beyond my knowledge, which makes it that extra bit more enjoyable to listen to. Listening to stuff like this really does inspire me to want to learn jazz myself though. So once again very well done to Kenny.
