Easily your hardest template yet for me, Marc. A proper beast, especially with the three very distinct sections, one of which involved half-time. Jazz is by far my weakest area. I opted for a traditional jazz ride pattern throughout but reinforced it with a phrased backbeat for your main riff. The initial part is a bit wooden as it seemed to take me a while to settle into the groove. The other two sections were very challenging, opting to just keep the ride going and punctuating your (pushed you meanie!) keys. The last section was just a half-time jazz pattern.

I recorded the different sections separately so the joins aren't perfect but I've done my best with them. This was hard to do well. Thank you for the challenge, Marc and I hope it's how you imagined.

WadeWade Yea, each of us has their own technical stuff to work out. If the end result is OK that's all that matters. This works so well.
