Hi All,

Last year @Rachel_D and I collaborated on Sunlit Bloom. This year @Bill from November Love noticed the song and offered to replace the 'fake' saxophone in the song with a real one. He's been very kind and sent me no less then 13 takes in High Quality, so I could choose which takes match the song best. I'm really excited to share the end result (I replaced the live version on soundcloud):

Sunlit Bloom

Let's walk into the sunlight
Hike across the hills
on a picnic full of thrills.

And take another stroll
into the blue
Hear the chirping birds
And whistle their tune.

Cos itís all I love,
And I canít wait,
So take me to the place
where I can escapeÖ

It makes me want to fly
It makes me want to dance so high
It makes me want to dream
It makes me want to float inside

Cling onto the path that leads me to you -
We can share a cake and a biscuit or two

Take a one way trip to the river of joy -
We can stop to see the earth flower and bloom.

Or spring will end too soon!

Letís swim into the magic,
Join the dolphinsí dance
Cos our dreams are meant to last

Unravel all the shades
As nature blooms
Let it paint our soul
With its brighter hues

Cos itís all I want,
And I canít wait,
So take me to the place
where I can escapeÖ

It makes me want to fly
It makes me want to dance so high
It makes me want to dream
It makes me want to float inside

Cling onto the path that leads me to you -
We can share a cake and a biscuit or two

Take a one way trip to the river of joy -
We can stop to see the earth flower and bloom.

Flower and bloom...
So take me to..

the saxophone really lifts the song up. I must say I didn't hear it without saxophone, but still,... a great addition! The instrumentation is part of the songwriting.

Really nice @Mar T. One thing is a find the kick drum a little busy, maybe remove a couple of it's hits, just a suggestion. The rest of the mix is spot, and of course the Sax is amazing, nothing beats the feel of real Sax by a great player. Nicely done man  ;D ;D ;D

This is great @Mar T. @Rachel_D and @Bill from November Love

I'm having to work this Sunday and have music in the background but I stopped to listen to this one a couple of times

Now I can't remember where I was with my work  ???



It was so nice of you to create a real saxphone line to the song - such a nice surprise 1 year later! :)
....and I've just listened to it ----> WOW! This is amazing @Bill from November Love - I love that instrumental break section and I also like how the sax is merged at the ending as well.

I really enjoyed listening! :) It took the song to a new level :D :D
Brilliant! :) :D

Oh, I remember that one. It's a cool song. I love the bass line and of course @Rachel_D 's vocals. And the new sax is just wonderful @Bill from November Love ! ::headphone::

Very well done, karma, karma, karma! ;D

Cheers,
Mark


@Mar T.  and @Bill from November Love I had not heard the previous version of the track without the sax solo. Now I couldn't imagine it without it! Awesome performance all around. Love @Rachel_D vocals and the mix is hi-def.

Wow! Great song, great vocals, and the sax solo completely tops it off beautifully!


@Bill from November Love - amazing.. great to see you back!!

This is a great tune....my first listen.

Listening as I write.....WOW!!...that sax is fabulous!

One thing, if I may......consider a de-esser judiciously applied to the lead vocals.

Wow I loved to read all these lovely responses folks !! Thank you all for listening and great to hear you all seem to love how @Bill from November Love spiced up this song with his fab solo!
I'll look into the kick @denizensdeep , thanks for your pointer.. And @Leonard Scaper : good point! I'll look into the de-essing...
@Bill from November Love suggested to look at the piano gain so I'll so that as well..
I'll be back to this track to finalize when I have a bit of spare time.
Cheers all!!

Very good song and very well produced!  I love how forward and intimate the vocals are.  My only nitpick is that the vocal phrasing is off in some places.  It doesn't take away from the song at all, but it could be tightened up a bit.

Great work! ::thumb::
