I'm sorry, but I guess "Getting Free" nearly is beyond recovery.
Sometimes this kind of shit happens. I'm still not fine with the
mastering. Perhaps the brasses needs to be louder and maybe you have to
completely record the vocals again. Just my 2 cents.
If I would try to remaster "Getting Free", I would mix the instrumental
backing with the vocals kept in mind and after this I would try to add
the existing vocals, but I fear you need to sing it again. I might be
completely wrong, because I don't know the raw material.
At the moment I'm in a completely different musical phase of life. I'm
ogling most of all with avant-garde jazz, something that nearly can't be
mixed wrong, because there are less expectations for the final mixing.
For your song "Getting Free" I do have expectations for the mixing. I'm
comparing it with common mixing styles for this kind of music. Perhaps
you like to break the mould. If I were you, I wouldn't do this for this
kind of music.
And now a note to "Too Old Too Soon". Sounds like West Coast, similar to
Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young and Crazy Horse. A hard contrast to the
music of a jazz musician I visited at the weekend and to the music I
prefer for my musical phase of life, but I like "Too Old Too Soon" very
much. IIRC this song wasn't there when you first posted the link. I like
it very much. Please, can I get a FLAC or WAV for private listening? If
so send it to me off-list. I like the composition, arrangement and mixing.
Btw. the musician I visited, Achim Jaroschek , has got a Kurzweil PC2
with similar good B3 sounds, like you are playing in "Too Old Too Soon".
What keyboard does your keyboarder use? Is it a Kurzweil PC2 too? I'm
asking because I noted that for the very good sound there's the click
missing. Achim's Kurzweil's B3 sounds do have a click when playing
singlelines or two notes simultaneously, but when playing 3 or more
notes the click gets lost. This is very annoying. I'm not missing the
click in "Too Old Too Soon", I just noticed that there seems to be no
click too, but it's ok for this song.
 Anybody in Leipzig today?
Concert announcement: Achim Jaroschek/ Piano -- Holger Ehling/ Reading
Mediencampus Villa Ida
The concert and reading starts 19:30 03/17/2010. I guess the reading
will be on German.
I won't be at the Leipzig Book Fair, I stay in our home town Oberhausen,
Ruhrpott, Western Germany, but I recommend to visit this concert. Achim
is a very gifted exceptional talent, among others he played with Peter
Brötzmann, Günter "Baby" Sommer, Mani Neumeier and Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky.
Achim (piano, keyboards and drums) is open minded, I dunno, but I'm
nearly sure he would like to talk with musicians and anybody else
listening to this concert. He not only plays Brötzmann stylish, but also
... hm? ... I would say sometimes it reminds me to the more melodic
music of Art Lande, who also is a pianist and drummer, but this might be
just my impression.
