Cathys RevueI don't think Ive reviewed anything b y Cathy before, but hey I couldn't help be really impressed but the quality and complete tightness off the production. There is an aura around Cathys vocal that appears to synchronise the brass and percussionists to galvanise such a beautifully cohesive performance. I would love to experience this in a live concert performance, you can't help to visualise and move about with the rhythm and the whole experience is amazing and electrifying. Great performance Cathy
Ethnic danceThis particular song is a mix of various kind of music, from the dance to the ethnic sounds. The idea could be interesting, the voice seems different from the groove, but this confusion is modern.
Impressive Music StyleJust another great release from Cathy Varna grabbed me right from the start! Her unique vocals brings a distinctive mood into the song. The intro is catchy but the whole arrangement is more various. All instruments really stand out, especially the accompain flamenco guitar and great played trumpet. Addional percussions are an extra factor and make the music complete. Brilliant accentuated guitar solo brings increasing surprise into this song. This is definitely a very professional recording, very good mixed and mastered. Overall a quintessence of spanish folkmusic in style of pop in perfect orchestration. Listen to the song and I´m sure you will also enjoy.
In My OpinionGreetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, I really enjoyed the energy and music in this song. Vocals are smooth and natural, sort of - down to earth as they say, and extremely easy to listen to and peaceful. The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny
