Another Sleepless Night

 This is a re-mix of my first ever jazz composition. The mix still isn't very good because I don't really know what else to do to it. Still is my first time mixing jazz. I changed some things around with this one. I added a piano solo in the beginning and I changed the rhythm of the guitar to straight quarter notes. I am a huge fan of Renee Olstead and would like to dedicate this piece to her. The entire solo is improvised as always with myself. Please let me know what you think if this re-make. I still have the older version uploaded if you would like to compare. 

For those who don't know her Renee she is a 20 year old (9 days younger than myself) jazz singer born in Houston Texas. She has been singing and acting almost all of her life and recorded some of her best tunes at the age of 14 while she was on my favorite tv show of all time "Still Standing." Renee does all the jazz standards with a few of her own originals like "A Love That Will Last." Unlike Miss Olstead I do not have a good voice. With that said I used the the instrument I play the best to play the melody/solo.

Thank You For Listening

There is not much more to say (after Dan-t)...I liked the first Version and so I do with this...
Perhaps you should try to be more on the "point" (max 1/32 note behind) for to make it more swinging....
From me 5*

I agree with Dan-t and Frantzi. Excellent guitar play.

 Much better than the last one. I would have to agree with the people bellow me it could use a little more work. Maybe if the drums were real. still 5 from me.

 Yes much better than you original. I really like the piano solo in the beginning.

 It took me a while to find your original version because of what you named it. When comparing the 2 this new one has a much better feel and an awesome piano solo. Its really cool you are dedicating this to Renee Olstead she must be something special. I don't think you should change a note in this new one.

My be in my ears, thats the rythm. is a little bit strong in your theme. Perhaps it would be a little more have to swing. But thats my mind of this.
Great job by handmade.

Wonderful Jazz !!!! Genial !!!! Talent !!! ciao da sandro

Sandro Glavina is an italian composer, named L'Uomo e L'Ombra. The choice of the name derives from the title of the album "L'uomo e l'ombra" of the band "Abstract Music Nuova Esistenza", an experimental group founded by Sandro Glavina together with his friends in the mid-70s.

In the period 2009-2022, L'Uomo e L'Ombra has done 84 albums. The compositions of Sandro Glavina are partly influenced by progressive rock. Sandro has developed a personal style with many experimentations and actualizations. He offers music beyond borders by intertwining different styles in crossover with each other. Prog, psychedelia, classical, post-rock, jazz, pop are some of the influences that dissolve in ambient atmospheres, citations of contemporary music and minimalist nuances. Sandro Glavina aka L'Uomo e L'Ombra plays the music using VSTI synthesizers, keyboards and adds some loops. Sandro isn't a professional musician, composes and plays music just for fun, but his works reach a good outcome, pleasant to listen. L'UOMO E L'OMBRA

Nice song, but there are serious problems with the timing. Drums, bass and Rhythm-guitar do not work as a unit.

Very impressive! Your playing is very expressive.Covering a jazz standard is complicated,especially when using a drum machine. I think Frantzi had a good suggestion. For my ears,your guitar could use more mid and bass tone. Please have another go at this and post the results for us.

hi, its just true, you should remix, because it would be a shame to have this nice melodie with this little mistake, nevertheless, some stars for the good job are always
