Make the moment last

The lights on the hill
The music from not so far away
But far enough still
Not to get in the way

The tropical breeze
That comes at the perfect moments
And tickles the trees
Oh, it seems heaven sent

I'm here with you in this magic moment
No future and no past
Is there a way to make the moment last?

That first taste of rum
That hint of a smile reminds me
Of pleasures to come
In the night that will be

But this warm afternoon
I hope this sublime perfection
Won't end to soon
For time, it goes just one direction

I'm here with you...

Vocal is good
Laid back song with easy an feeling groove
Perhaps pitch for a tv ad?

This is a great tune. Kinda Latin/Jazz, laid back, quiet and really well done. The vocal is up front and intimate, a bit like Michael Franks. Instrumentation is tastefully done and each instrument can be heard throughout the mix.

This review is Not fair!!! I know who this artist is!!! On this particular song, he has it perfect!!! Great Job on all the important aspects of musical composition, production and performance! Greg has this Genre NAILED!! His soft Jazzy voice and killer instrumentation, this is a perfect tune!! Another incredible job sir!! I'm putting money down in the third on this race!!!!

O Wow, what a lovely song! I'm wasn't a jazz fan until now. If all jazz sounded this sweet, I would be a jazz fan. This is tropical ambience love song at its very best. With Latin hand percussion, convincing tenor vocals, stellar background vocals and great instrumentation, this song is five stars all around. The chorus/hook is so memorable. I love the way you croon and end up with that fantastic chorus. I can imagine you singing this on a cruise ship...

Nice song, nice vibe. Great job!

The vibe of the song is beautiful. Great lyrics which are sung beautifully. Lovely arrangement. I especially like the guitar and percussion. Great the way the instrumentation pulls away for the 'Make the moment last' line. I love the way it goes high at 1.43. Very nicely recorded. The song reminds me of George Michael and Michael Franks, with shades of CSN in the bridge.

Nice ,Laid back tune, great mix
