My opinion.... Several things I've discovered for myself:
WHENEVER you can mic your entire kit, DO SO! It makes
a world of difference! You swung the heck out of this, Kenny!
The problem as I heard it is you couldn't hear many of the
details, like the the stick dancing on the ride cymbal or the
ghost notes on the snare that I'm sure you were playing!
The bass drum sounded great I thought but it's presence
overshadowed the rest of the kit. It was if you had the
kick miked and nothing else.
When you can't hear the details, it will give the impression
of just sort of muddling through a piece. The note I was
able to hear from your bass drum was just perfect as far
as I was concerned. I too dug your solo but again, many
of the details were lost...
Drummers, MIC your kit whenever you can even in the least
of available playing options and circumstances!... It makes
a ton of difference.
I also enjoyed the sax and guitar solos.
Opinion: Brushes on the melody, sticks on the solo sections
Nice job, Kenny!
