Bolinas by David Akkerman

Man, this was a hard one to mix. Just Bass, Guitar, Piano, Vibes and Drums that's it. Give it a twirl and let me know.

Everything sounds real clear until 3.05 when the kick and snare come in. I think the combination of the compression and reverb on the snare make it sound like the drummer is in another room from the rest of the musicians. While the high hat, and tom fills sound more present. Tasty guitar playing. There's a nice Jeff Beck like sustain trail on one of the licks.

Everything sounds rather muted or even muffled from the get to. With the guitar it is nice but the other instruments could use more shine like on a Chris Rea mix (unless that is not what you want). I agree it becomes more noticeable with the drums in the mix.

The piano I have a concern with too as it seems rather one-dimensional. Am I right in guessing it a is a sample?

Maybe you need a Tonto to help with the production side of things LOL

Musically tho I do like it and when that mix is cheered up it is something I'd b happy to have as Driving Music.

Yeah, I need a Tonto, lol.

You are right, I am going to make adjustments and re-submit in the morning. More feed back from others is welcome.
