mr special -    Mixing elements of everything from classical and jazz to hip-hop and dub, mr. special is a pioneer fresh in the making. The computer sets the background and introduces an idea. The trumpet births creative spirit to bring the foreground into play and dance through the holes, bringing just the right element to construct the playground. The music is a concept of inspiration that draws on and speaks to many emotions. Open up your soul to the ear candy of mr. special when you need to grieve, when you need to relax, when you need to meditate, or when you simply need to tap your own creative vein within.

Mmmm, this fits perfectly with my sleepy mood and half-melancholic, half-contented state of mind... like everyone else I love the horn. This is not music for every occasion - as it gets a bit backgroundy after a while - but then again, what is? Me likes.

Yeah sure a nice atmosphere. Maybe rhythmically a little too easy. It doesn't settle inside. But the trumpet is real great.

Honor is nothing in todays society. It'll get you a deflated mansion on ebay for a dollar but you would not want to spend the night there. I'm more impressed with candy that looks like pasta.

Thanks to all the redfizz critics who posted kind words during evaluation; much appreciated. Balcerbon: In all of our works, the trumpet, keys, and the occasional guitar, are the only real instruments used; everything else is created organically on a computer. Oscarpino: Thank you for your statement of the message we are trying to send. This particular track of "red memphis morning" started as a vision to promote this brilliant speech of Dr. King and evolved into a song of its own accord. It was the incarnation of mr. special and remains our proudest work. It has seemed to find a home in people from all walks of life and we are humbled by the appreciation we have been shown from this creative collaboration. The excerpt you hear from the words of Dr. King was recorded in Memphis, Tennessee, on the night before he was shot down. Since the first time I heard this speech, I have been unable to get his words out of my head. So many elements of it seemed to prove he knew what was to come and that he knew he had done all that he could. "Longevity has its place..." Such a prolific vision. Such a tragedy. Such an honorable man.

really sweet tones, esp with those keys, reminds me of 70s tv show themes, but more laid back, like taxi, etc.. enjoyable.

Apart from the fact that it has been played very nicely, this is one of those instrumental songs that "say something", starting with the title and ending with Martin Luther King’ speech. It gives to the tune lots of emotivity. I loved it.

A very classic sounding trumpet tone... maybe a slight bit too much reverb as it sounded slightly distant though it fit with the song. Quality playing and there was some interesting stuff melodically going on with the horn lines.
