2. ready for review "Miss Fairy, You Sure Are Great" - A Jazz Trio Waltz

Recommended Posts

Here's the Great Fairy Fountain as a jazz waltz. Just got a new bass VST so finally I have all 3 (piano, bass, and drums - the triforce of jazz).

This style is really fun, and I like to think I've gotten a little intimate with this sound lately.

I'm trying to take a pretty traditional trio approach here, mostly influenced by the trio album Red Garland's Piano. A somewhat obvious influence for the waltz is Bill Evans. Taking some notes from past submissions about structure problems. I think this one has that all fixed up and has a pretty clear structure. 

I modified the original changes just a hair as well which you can see in this lead sheet:

My first impression is that this is smooth. It just ripples without end or interruption. It's gentle enough to get lost in, but at the same time you don't want to miss a thing. I don't have much experience with jazz, but your mix is decidedly pleasant and relaxing. Nice work!
