Amazing Jonas.....every time I hear your music I hear somebody different. I just kept thinking
Donal Fagen as I listened to this.......
Too fast an driven... I hear the cool Fagen riff but needs more breaks with funk to get a relaxed groove.....

I never occurred to me that it sounded like a Donald Fagen thing.  It's always fun to get the "man on the street" opinion.  If you can think of a better title let me know.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

One of the great songs of the 60's, 1966 to be exact. The Easy Beats, a short lived group, great songs, love the videos on Youtube with all the Go Go dancers :-D Stevie Wright, lead singer, had a horrible string of drug and alcohol issues the destroyed him over several decades. VERY striking, VERY sad, VERY amazing he is still alive. Pictured in the 60's, 80's and now. Really one of the top groups of their time! Video is easily in the top 100 songs of all time......in my opinion anyway, if not, should be :P I remember this played at my share of keggers back in the day!!

How about "Nightclub In The Park" or "Moonlight Jazz". My wife Rosie said, "A Little Nightcap".......a few you can maybe work with?

The Warden asked me to add "Time For A Nightcap Of Jazz", we both liked your piece a lot, wanted it to be longer! She also said she picked up a little Sergio Mendez in there too. We both like classic rock, old country (not the new stuff) big band/swing, blues and jazz, but the jazz has to be like what you played, everyone playing the SAME song!! Not the disjointed jazz when all the instruments are going in completely different directions ??? Gotta make sense in my head :-D

The  medical community is finally starting to realize the inherited, genetic links to depression/mental illnesses, alcoholism, drug addiction, etc and categorizing it as a disease instead of reckless behavior of choice. Yes, starts with poor choices but if you got the gene or inherited behavior your likelihood of profound problems are magnified a hundred fold. Many can recreate with drugs and alcohol their entire lives with no issues, most of us can! A 12 pack on a day off, a couple drinks a nite and walk away come the work week, but others, a couple drinks, a couple lines and it is the start of a lifetime of grief for them and family, it's more sad than a disgrace. Watched many working in the hospital over 24 years, colleagues and also very close friends get destroyed by depression and alcohol/drugs over my 59 years of life in general, most recently a best friend whom I met at work in the ICU we worked in. Watched it take him apart over 20 years. The last time he was in treatment was for a year of inpatient care for depression and booze/drugs. He was found dead by me and his son a month after getting out. He tried hard, couldn't shake it. I spoke at his funeral about the Beast we all have in us. The Beast might be asthma, arthritis, crohn's, cancer, depression, drugs/booze, anger, cigarettes..........we all battle something, or will! Some of us do a better job than others, some get beat, some can't get back up. Got my own demons like most, but so far...........I tell people if you don't have issues in your life be ready for when you do, can be quite a ride, gotta hold tight, hard getting out of the ditch on your own after the wreck. With help or not, still gotta be on your own

Zip A Dee Doo Dah by James Baskett (aka Uncle Remus).  Every time I hear this song it makes me smile and think of being on Splash Mountain with my family at WDW.  Wish I was there right now  :'(

I heard this for the first time on my sons white-noise machine last year and had to look it up, great piece. I'm on a Chopin kick now. I figured I was amongst very few people here who enjoys piano music, thanks for posting.
