What, so I can start loving it?
This is chill. The piano solo rocks like no other. Kinda sounds like lounge music, though. The structure just reminds me of doctor's visits... elevators... hotel waiting rooms...
yeah.

Hehehe great title :)! The start of this reminds me of an anime episode (a compliment - I *love* anime). It's also a bit Norfair-y which I like.

ah, from the very beginning you get the impression that this has been done by someone who really knows what he's doing.
very comfy arrangement - topnotch progression and use of instruments / samples. the pianos are pure ace! absolutely awesome, lllllluvin' it!

and the lil solos are just awesome

Hey Tenfour,

to be honest - i hate you (ahh just kidding naturally).
I think Keith303 already said it best - you sure know what you are doing.
From my personal point of view there is nothing more impressive, than composing a jazz tune on Renoise.

You really impressed me - respect.

It sounds like You would have played also a real piano. Very nice. I specially liked the way you ended this piece of music.

I agree with aGp.. this is so smooth, it's almost sick. :)

Very nicely balanced, and the progression seems to flow effortlessly. And it reminds me of Moonlighting, which makes it even better!

i opened the cheese flood gates for this track. those wacky smooth jazz cadences were fun to tack on. I wasn't sure if the cheese factor would be obvious that it was intentional so i added the ultra-cheese intro/coda. i recorded the intro/code live, but everything else was typed in.

thanks for the comments =)

a well deserved winner - gj tenfour!

This song had me at hello. LUSH intro... kicking 70's beats. I wish the bass vst had been better because your composition deserves it. But when it is stacked against the hard-epiano it fills out even nicer.

Your fucking smooth-jazz composition is, well to use a cliche i mean in the best way: Music to my ears.

I also love your Piano licks to death.

Square adults in America have a huge boner for smooth jazz, and this def competes in theme and style, and does so with more flair than the standard fare. I'm no square but i love the genre when it is at its best, and you sir, are truly there. :)

With some pro-mixing/mastering (including upgrading of some of the instruments to higher quality ones) this track would undoubtedly be professional-grade flawlessness, in my opinion.

I'm sorry this tune missed my vote for #1. Glad it won.

*EDIT are you Russian? :P

Wow, really awesome track. As soon as the beats kick in I was hooked. Great beats, funky bass and smoooth melodies. Being melodically-challenged I wouldn't know where to start composiing something like this.

Plus bonus points for reminding me of playing Pilotwings on the SNES back in the day.. ah nostalgia..
