Jazz. Really not my forte. This loop has been holding me up for the best part of a week now, such was my determination to get it 'right'. I knew in my head what I wanted to play and achieve but, in the end and after several dud takes, I had to sit down and work out the basics to hit [some of] the stabs.

Anyway, this is a superb template from Tof and Marc and this spurred me on further to make it as good as possible. Sadly, JMRukkers excellent add I didn't notice until after I'd finished recording.

I just can't seem to autopilot my right hand/left foot as one needs to in jazz. My dogged attempts to get this right has caused a massive backlog of loops for me to do now! So here it is, [edited!] warts and all!

So here it is. All criticism most welcome! Please!


No reverb on the HD drums.

PJEPJE I love it Martin you got the breaks and highlights really well - always admire good jazz drumming and I think this is a fine example the break/fill at 1:46 ....on is outstanding and perfect but still subtle - love how you wrapped it up too - very very neat work :)

MarceysMarceys Yeah! Cool to hear you again Martin! You play this style very well! Maybe my piano is a bit to loud in the mix here.... You can play them all man! :)

You're right, Marc. I tried to mix the drums in the background as that seems to be the Jazz way but I think the keys are maybe a bit far forward.

kennyadrykennyadry Indeed...jazz is one of some of the most difficult genre, but u didn't show any signs of difficulty here. As a matter of fact what u did was very enjoyable to my ears. Another great job here martin!
