This started out as an attempt to write something Latin-ish but wound up sounding like the theme song for a cheap spy movie. So, if Latin spy-movie themes are your thing, this might appeal to you. I'm more or less happy with the parts and arrangement but completely unsure about everything else. Suggestions etc. are welcome.

Spy theme for sure. I thought the overall mix was Very good. In my opinion , I think the brass section could be tamed a little at the 2.06 mark. The melody here was fine but something thinned out the mix in this section.  That was some excellent guitar work thru the entire song. You sound like a very polished jazz guitarist.   That was a pleasure to listen to . mark

Loved the whammy bar dips. That's a neat guitar lead line. We need much more Latin jazz stuff on the forum.

Your jazz guitar improv skills are legit. Cool!

For a not, maybe that rhythm guitar you occasionally have panned far right could sit better in the mix, maybe drop the volume?

Maybe more reverb , plate, on the horns?

 

Thanks for that one!

Well I think that you did what you intended!  It certainly has that Latin feel to which you have matched that spy thriller vibe.  Excellent composition and arrangement of the various instrumental sections.  Oh ya, the guitar playing, excellent.   I absoflippinlutely enjoyed this post.  Thanks for putting it on the forum!

DeeringAmps: I thank you for the listen and your tres cool comments. Much appreciated!

mark skinner: Hi Mark, thanks for the listen and suggestions. At the 2:06 mark a piano doubles the trumpet line an octave higher. That could be the problem you refer to. I'll have to revisit that section. Thanks for the help. I was blown away by your cover of "Take Me Down South".

emeraldsoul: Hi Tom, thanks very much for the rhythm guitar and reverb suggestions. I appreciate the help! I also appreciate the positive comments about the guitar and tune as well, thank you.

Well, I tried to use my mojo but it wasn't working so "snake charm" was all I had!

Sign of a good jazz instrumental: it brings a big fat grin to my face. This absolutely delivered - knockout stuff and lovely guitar work. Andy

I enjoyed that very nice!
I thought the mix was good.

We all paint different pictures,,,  a little reverb could give more definition to some of the instruments.

You're not the only person who has said this. I need to get over my fear of reverb!
