El Pajaro Cantor (The Songbird)

Recommended Posts

Back in July I purchased the UVI Orchestral Suite.  I wrote this little instrumental* using the Flute for a duet.  The acoustic guitar thing soloing at 2:07 is the Chapman Stick in the Trilian Bass Module and I used the Bar Chimes in the EZ Drummer Latin Percussion kit for the "shimmering".  The "birdies" are from a real video on YT.  I looked up the spanish translation for the word "songbird" to make the title more romantic.

*mostly.  Just a bit of BGV.

Hope you enjoy!

Really beautiful song.  I feel like it's crying out for some congas and timbales.  You come up with some very cool chord changes.

I liked the jazzy vibe to this song - and it has a bit of a Latin feel to my ears. The mix sounded good to me (especially the flute), with all the instruments coming through clearly.

I always enjoy your piano playing - nice job on this one.

Happy Holidays.

Only 3 replies?  Really?  Maybe posting a song 3 days before Christmas was just bad timing.  Thanks to all who listened, whether they replied or not.

@Bajan BlueNo worries, Nigel.  Thanks for checking it out. 😀  I just wanted to pass it through one more time to see if I could get a few more listens.  December 22 might be a bad time for some because of finalizing the Holiday rush.

Pleasant tune John.  You need to find a flautist (or two) to play it live with you.  This feels like a 60's detective type movie.
