"Jamaican Jazzman" Jason Miles P

Quote From Pro:
Geoff Martins Jamaican Jazzman takes you on a trip through time. It sounds modern but the retro feel to it brings you to a London Nightclub with all the added vibe. I'm looking at the Go Go Girls Dancing in cages above the stage and I'm waiting for James Bond or Austin Powers to walk in. I am also enjoying the song and groove-This is a unique production and song that grabs you from note 1-Highly recommended

Broadjam Member Reviews
Geoff Martin is one of the finest exponents of the new, retro big band/jazz standards sound that I have heard!
- Ted Myers - Broadjam Pro Reviewer
Nice hook. Beautiful music and big band feel.
- Claudia Mikail (songwriter)
Geoff martin has crafted a wonderful song and production with London Town. Whenever I hear a quality song with a big band and great vocal I always have that feeling that I'm floating somewhere else for a few minutes. I got that feeling when I heard London Town. very enjoyable and very well done!
- Jason Miles - Broadjam Pro Reviewer
Wonderful! Very romantic and relaxing! I could sure see it in a movie! The singer was super as well as the arrangement. I loved it! GREAT JOB!

Hey Geoff, very interesting composition, "Don't Look Back", your music at 2:34 was quite q shock, wasn't ready for that Musical transition! In fact.....I was drinking a Pint and spilled it!! It actually was a Chocolate Malt, but a Pint sounded so much Cooler & Manly!
Gave you 5 Stars & Likes....Great Music!

Stay Safe Friend, Sport That Mask!!

Hi Geoff--Thank you for listening to "Cherish (orchestral version)" and the stars. I appreciate it! I listened to your "No Way Out". Very interessting, sounds like a movie soundtrack. Great work--the vocals sound a bit like Men at Work.

My pleasure Jeana "Cherish" is something special, and thank you for the humbling comparison to one of my favourite Aussie bands.
