Hey guys, I must say in advance again, sorry for the delay, I was little sick and on the road so I had to do the collab this late. Since there aren't too many participants I've decided to make some more detailed reviews for the people who did me the honor to participate in this beautiful sounding collaboration which is my all time favorite for now. Here's is the summary

Type of collaboration: Jazz Soloing style
Final Mix length: 2.32
Number of Participants: 4 (5 takes)

SIGGUM:

Piano Take:
Excellent piano sound, very smooth and natural sounding. Intro is great, that melodic passage, slightly syncopated really adds to the atmosphere of the tune. Then small intervals to finish of the phrase in a good manner. That little chromatic passage is great and very jazz sounding but little bit more on the execution side needs to be worked out to sound more clearly. You have a nice talent for harmony and I can see how you are trying to follow the progression theme. in the second part you actually stopped for a moment and wondered where to go, and this proves that you listen to the harmony before playing over it which is very important. That following the 7th chords going down is and excellent way to give support to the top notes of the inverted 7th chords that are actually iii ii I vii vi but with the top notes G F E D C which then sound like were back on I rather then vi. Excellent.

Guitar Take:
Excellent melodic intro going closely with the harmonic and rhythmic structure of the backing guitar. Then a small bluesy lick very nice going with that, and again some little melodic variations that i think would benefit from nice slow vibrato there. That 1/4 bend is a nice touch too adding to the blues feel. Again like it piano take you stooped a little when the key center changes. I suggest to analyze the backing before you start the solo. remember impro in jazz require a solid scale and chords background knowledge. Must know exactly what you can use and where or else when we go out of Cmajor key you can feel trapped in Cmajor scale and not knowing where to go "out". The ending is a very nicely played, smooth and in the groove, little pulling back and making a track more easy sounding. Very nice.


TJCHEP:

Some nice popping notes in this solo. I like how you used po technique to accent some of the notes in the solo, but be careful to do it in some kind of rhythmic manner that can relate to the backing better. In the second part of the solo you moved to the bluesy feel and smoother playing lowering down the dynamic. I feels very cool, especially with that nice vibrato use. THe ending was nice, I recongized where you wanted to go, but simply didn't have enough beats to go for it. Must think in advance when doing these kind of soloing stuff. So use of techniques is not a problem for you , your vibrato and popping are great style for this kind of track. But what I would suggest doing is to listen to backing more careful and really analyze the harmonic structure of the rhythm guitar part. Also while playing you must feel the groove and have the ability to know in advance what kind of a harmonic pattern to expect in advance. It is a hard technique and skill to develop but once you get used to changing different harmonic patterns other things will be a walk in the park.

ORGANIZED CONFUSION:


Great intro my friend, nice and smooth melodic passage x 2 , second run using some nice hammerons to make 2 ghost notes and sliding up. Then using legato to make small runs and coming back down again using the scale. In the second part you've got the feel, got into the groove and really build up the dynamic of the solo. Very nice, I could really fell that. Again the tricky part (for everyone) comes when the harmony becomes a bit unstable and you make a small pause to regroup. That is good also, better to make a small pause then bunch of notes without sense. In the end you finished nicely. So fro you I also recommend a little bit practice on those hammerons and pulloffs , so they sound rock solid with the tempo if you know what I mean. Also some harmonic structure analyzing would be of good use too.

NEMANJA:


Very nice melodic building and more important phrasing. Phrasing in this one is brilliant I must say and certainly it sounds good because you played quiet too. Now giving in respect that your sister was sleeping and you could not give your maximum which is much greater I know, I will not include any negative feedback this time - but watch out... smile.gif



AGAIN, thank you guys for participating in this excellent collaboration. Although the were not too many people in it I think it created a more private and quality sounding atmosphere and this is why this collab sounds favorite to me. Thanks again! smile.gif

Thanks for this collab ivan and a great backing track. Awesome job by everyone and i really enjoyed it. I am totally new to jazz recording but it is my favourite genre so i want to learn and improve. I will work on pull offs and hammer ons and harmonic intervals which is totally new to me.

Im looking forward to the next collab you do.

Cheers.
