You're right there's only one thing wrong with it....it needs more listeners!

Regarding the guitar I thought that the note choices on the solos were very good (even more so for one time through) though I agree that it sounded too messy. Less distortion would be a good idea to complement the timbre of the other instruments. However, when shredders like Paul Gilbert and Yngwie Malmsteen use this amount or more of distortion the notes still sound very clean and crisp when playing solos because they use the fleshy skin on their fretting hand fingers to contribute to muting the strings resulting in very clean notes even with high amounts of distortion. It's a common shredding technique, though I don't often see guitarists outside of a shredding style using (or knowing) it.
I enjoyed listening anyway, thanks for posting. Good luck, have fun with the latin rock album.

So relaxing listening to this, I get absorbed by each instrument in the mix and my ears can't be in enough places, so much enjoyment. And for me great to hear the distortion guitar playing jazz like this, haven't heard it before. Sounds like all the players are so good on their instruments and come together as one unit, giving each one his/her opportunity in the spotlight. I'm not a big jazz fan but when I listen to music like this it pulls me in. You make me an instant fan ! Should be such an experience to see this performed live !!
Congratulations on a great production.
