i enjoyed it.

nice sounds and i liked the  funky arrangement and the latin outro. keep sharing your impressive work!
sid and paul, thanks for you kind encouragements!

i tried to record something jazzy again with my new korg triton  
extreme fitted with moss board (a board that can emulate real  
instruments) but i used a midi bc3 witch is a breath controler taht  
control my playing trough blowing. the demo was so recorded by me  
though i still do not find people with whom to play jazz here. well, i recorded all the track in separate mode.
1 track : bass+piano+drums loop (the drumming loop is automated in real  
time while comping)
2 track: alto-sax
3 track: tenor sax.
i am glad that you enjoyed teh demo even it's not a big deal! heheh  

greetings from morocco,
p.s: it took me just 10 munites to record that

the breath controller makes a huge difference in the expressiveness of the playing. you almost (almost) had me believing that those were real horns.

this represents a major improvement over the previous recordings.

also i dug the funky little groove with the guitar skanking in the background.
nice arrangement only thing that bothers me is the drums. i don't really like that rytm i don't think it grooves with the snare drum being displaces every 2. bar
jeff, i am so glad you enjoyedt his recording.

nihonjin, i do not have many choice for the druming track, i would love to have a real drumer with me, but imagine how hard to achieve such work here in morocco.
