Very nice Kenny!
It could also do with a real horn...
Agree! I just put a melodica on it and I am waiting to see how the guitar works in track. I love to cut live w/real people but this has been fun too

Very pleasing to the ears for sure though!

Do you do a lot of editing to achieve this, or are you a natural perfect player? I always find when I do piano parts I need to do a of of MIDI editing to get the timing correct especially in a slower song. Your piano playing sounds natural, effortless and flowing. I admire that. Michael.
Wow that statement is great for the heart! I do very little editing ever on my piano, Piano and Organ are my instruments and I grew up in a time when you didn't have the opportunity to fix anything - straight to tape. If you wanted an edit in song you sliced the 2" and only the very best engineer did this well. So I still think like that. I do sometimes edit Synth parts and always edit bass parts if I use Trillian or Vienna Instruments Upright.
Michael your statement about editing in slower song is very true as playing slower is so much more difficult than playing fast. I learned from a drummer that lives in Atlanta and would play whole note then 1/2 etc at 40 50bpm for hours when we were on road. What a groove he has just by playing everything as slowly as possible, never forgot how difficult that is to do.
BTW the piano sound I have worked on for a long time and I am finally (temporarily) happy w/it
