General Comments

I very much Liked the song.It had a very catchy melodythat one can remember when the songs is over.I am wondering if this was done with live musicians or programmed drums and bass..That however doesn't matter if one is trying to place the song in a film or commercial..The quality of the song is what's important and that I rated 4 stars..The artist has a very nice feel to his guitar playing and definitely puts across the song with his style and precision..I thought the drums and bass were decent..Nothing special..but they worked in presenting this track..Overall A good presentation that gives you the idea of the song and the quality of the composition.The one thing that could have been added is perhaps some organ to give the track and song little more colors besides just the guitar

Pro's Answer/Comments:

It is a jazz song--I would look for independent films looking for songs..Hard to get it in a major film but I can hear it in various settings in films..There is no magic formula except;t to keep looking and seeding the song to music supervisors

They want 1500 characters for the review-I said everything you need to know..
so excuse me for just filling this up with words--I have always believed in quantity.Miles Davis gave me advice all the time as did other great artists and it was short and sweet but words of great wisdom..You don't need to be told a lot-You just need the Right thing and advice which in my life has gone along way


Quote From Pro:

Genares is a very melodic very easy going swing jazz song.A very Fluid and catchy melody brings you into the song and the high quality of the guitar playing gives you an excellent listening experience from beginning to end..I like melodies I can remember when the song is finished
