ASD Music Review:

Good dance beat. Tune is clearly played by lead instruments with lots of soft fi lls around the leads. Music from saxophone, piano, and guitar. Excellent balance on a well played instrumental offering minor chords. This is a song that you will croon to the dancers. Callers will have to watch out for the high spots. Scott lays out a beautiful vocal using good word meter.
