Beautiful piece which seems to cross genres and eras. I hear a bit of Stephen Foster mixed with delta blues greats and some chamber music influence as well. Great tempo change in there. All instruments are balanced beautifully. Great stuff!

Beautiful collab,happy flow of guitars, master piano by our wonderful Corrado... and fantastic flutes - reminds a bit of Mike Oldfields wonderful early instrumentals. Thank you, friends :-)

A village fete. Somewhere down South.Three guys from all over the world pick up their instruments and begin to play.The Southern Belle who's been to town to watch Steel Magnolias hitches up her strapless sun dress and walks up to the ugliest boy in town, smiles and takes his hand and leads him to the dance...And the band played on...A happy tune !

Vesa...a most entertaining piece from you for sure. It is a perfect length carrying the content superbly. And the interaction of slide, piano and flute melodies is wonderful. All are well played and very thoughtful. This may well be my fave from you. Excellent!!! Thoroughly enjoyed this....Blake

Our song 'Sweet Magnolia' is now 'R', so if we are starting the most plays contest, then "All Right!!" as 'Slap' would say...thanks again for the many plays, & reviews...all's cool. Very fine summer vibes.

It's Like a fusion of samba, country, blues, latin, instrumental, new age even, polynesian, Hawaiin, a waltz makes sense, 3/4 time,am I hearing that, can't count mmm? anyway = a might happy song.
06/11/09 10:23:00PM @vesa:
It's hit me as a kind of waltz, as watched dmy wife stroll across the living room floor, to the a happy mood, the 2nd part change is really taken to that higher level by all of us, however the flute gives it that extra latin touch...
Thanks so much again Erik & my sweet Carol...says it so

06/07/09 02:09:13PM @maxidogma:

Great tune! Nice unusual mix of instruments and textures with a memorable melody. Hard to pigeonhole the style (which is how I like it best!), almost seemed to be a sunny calypso feel to the latter half of the track. Some lovely acoustic chimes in that dobro sound. Really enjoyable(and original)collab!

06/03/09 06:22:51AM @scotty-c:
Vesa et al., Lovely tune. I really enjoy the Dobro sound and the arrangement was very nice. Good mix of instruments as well.


06/02/09 10:50:54PM @vesa:
I'm floored folks...thanks so much, & I just felt like it was mixed last nite...I've lost track of time, & that's a good sign. On behalf, of those late nite Amazing fellows, across the ocean amigos, sleeping after this lullaby of a latin wordly tune...I'll let them catch a breath & come on in. Much uplifted with all kinds of inspiring great words. Thank you for the uplifting words. -Vesa.

Each instrument sounds so innocent on this song. I love the interplay of instruments from 2 minutes on. It's like you guys have been playing together for decades. Fine piece.

Robert Joseph said in the profile pg: appreciated this alot:( Thanks so much Robert)
"Hi Vesa! Sweet Magnolia! Yes it was. Reminds me a little of Moonlight Mile by the Stones . But more melodic and much more colorful. You keep that blues based guitar, and added a a wonderful mix of keys and woodwind.very surprising change of pace. Your not only a excellent Bluesman, but very versatile also. This is one of my Favs so far. Nice and beautiful listens! Peace RJ"

07/01/09 11:20:05AM @vesa:
Thank you Holley & Hooker for the great reviews/comments. I'm sure the other guys take those very well of course. Might have another up our sleeve, however summer makes for time to reflect.
