Here is a new version of my mix of "Sailor Town".

Main improvements:

- Real trumpet player where it needed (pt4, 5, 6, 9)
- Cleaner sound for brass in staccato (pt5, 6)
- Harpsichord a little louder for the melody

I really thank Peiorele for his collaboration on this remix!

Enjoy :)

Harpsichord sounds easy more up front and the live trumpet makes a huge difference. Definitely some great changes here! I will nitpick that the trumpet is probably a little too up front at times, but as a former trumpet player it didn't bother me too much. 

Overall I'm good to go on this with these changes. Thanks got getting back to us!

For the opening, I felt like the source melody was buried in the background, so I was waiting to hear it be put in the foreground and that finally happened at :26; nothing wrong with that approach, I just was hoping the balance of the parts wouldn't be an issue like last time, and that concern was quickly put to rest. Nice work by Peíorele on the trumpet, and you can really feel the fun come through from Guillaume's arrangement. Really nice personalization of the theme and a great addition to the SoA album. Lovely!

A little conservative in instrumentation and overall style, but thoroughly embellished with additional ornamentation, fluid temp fluctuations, and of course a nice live trumpet solo that adds a lot. Certainly keeps the feel of the original intact, but also explores permutations & enhancements sufficiently. Nitpicking, I'd say there could be even more ebb & flow to the tempo & dynamics, because it's the type of composition that leans on that "swaying" aesthetic, but that's tough to sequence, and what's here is good.

Did not vote on the previous one, so let's see.  Right away this sounds like what I would expect from Bluelighter, a nice orchestral arrangement with more than a touch of whimsy.  Very nice tempo changes and dynamics.  2:27 sounds almost tango-ish, which is a plus in my book.  Nothing seems to jump out to me concerning the production, sounds clean and backing insturments do their job well, giving a nice full body to the arrangement.

This is a good listen that keeps the original lines not too far out of reach but also transforms it into a very fun arrangement.
