This is the second time I tried to send this. I didn't recieve an auto-confirmation email and I couldn't get a response from any of the judges stating the reason why. I assume that it didn't make it to you guys. My appologies if you did already recieved this submission and I just didn't get a confirmation.

The mixing could be a little better, as I thought the lead didn't stand out enough when everything else was in play, and the piece was pretty quiet as a whole.

Nonetheless, excellent energy and a wonderfully creative (and otherwise impeccable) arrangement. Not much else to say other than "swingin'"! That, and Canadian bacon is delicious. DELICIOUS!

Oh. My. God.


Really, there's practically nothing wrong here. Could be mixed better but it's live so I won't even go there. I love you guys.

This is definitely really quiet... not sure why no one mentioned that, but I'd like to see it more compressed/limited by at least a few decibels before we post. I have to turn up my volume by about 6db to get a really full picture of the sound.

Low volume aside, his is amazing! Absolutely GREAT arrangement, probably the most creative I've heard of this theme, plus excellent performances. For a one-shot live take this is really, really good even on the mixing end. Killer job guys!!

YES (COND - compress a bit)
