more This piece shows somewhat tendency for music's form/construction as if they play a composition by an accurate score. It looks to me that the players think composition rather than technic – speed, long solos, loudness, etc. I love this approach but would like to hear more of it, more accuracy and form, more diversity in the sound and composition. I write this only about this piece, purposely not listen to more pieces, however, I can tell that this team can take this approach further.

The blending of Funk and Jazz is pretty creative. It sounded like you enjoyed playing it. This would be a nice sound or song to play at any Jazz Festival.

As many of you know from my own music I love the idea of ambient and emotionally engaging music, Dr. Fred Cole manages to deliver that with his instrumental "Mausoleum". Sparse yet beautifully arranged Mausoleum is so satisfying on so many levels. It starts out very minimal which really sets up the listener for an amazing musical odyssey. By the halfway point, the track picks up in "intensity" and continues to compel the listener in a most pleasing and interesting way. From a performance perspective, Dr. Fred Cole nails it. The track is subtly intricate while never losing sight of its humble beginnings. The cascading runs and sonically complex harmony never become extraneous or over-wrought, instead they continue to build in such a way that keeps the music metaphorically moving forward, in a word, I was riveted for nine and half minutes while never becoming bored, not an easy thing to do when your track is over nine minutes long. From a production perspective the recording is really well done, the piano maintains a very rich tonal quality without becoming tinny or brittle, I'd be interested in knowing whether this was a real piano with a mic or was part of a sample library, either way it matters not because the recording is mint and only adds to the overall ambience of the track. This is a stellar track with killer production and unparalleled compositional value. Perfect for any occasion when you just want a little introspective quiet time. Dr. Cole, I salute you sir, this track was amazing, thank you :) XXXChristopher CarrionXXX
