I am new to this forum and I am posting this piece I composed six years ago with hopes of finding others here who share my interest in jazz and world instrumental music. I am currently working with my companion to merge my compositions with her video artistry, thus the video format. I apologize for not having an accompanying score. At the time I composed this piece, I did not bother with notation, however now I score all compositions. Please feel free to criticize this piece and also contact me if you share my interest or want to direct me to your compositions. Because of the video, the file appears to be too large as an attachment so I'll try posting a YouTube link here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYSZIyfUK88
I send you warm greetings from the tropical Panamanian Highlands.
I really enjoyed this piece. It was relaxing, smooth, nice jazzy vibe. My only real critique is that at times I wished some of the chord changes were faster. Other than that - Well done!
Heart warming harmonies and free spirited melodic abstraction.
I also like the video. Done with very good artistry and imagination compliments your music.
Well done, thanks for sharing.
Thank you very much, Bobby, for your kind words and helpful critique.

Thanks very much, Socrates. I agree with you regarding the video. My collaborator is very talented. I gave her this composition and title, nothing more. Everything in the video is completely her interpretation of the music. I didn't want to influence her work in any way. She now has state of the art software so I can't wait to see what she does for my next composition. Thanks again, Saludos de Panamá....
