Goose bumps from the first note. Thank you for playing
Really nice, the horns remind me of These New Puritans as well
Due to the speed of the Waltz – before you even progress to the Viennese Waltz – you will move your feet approximately 90 times per minute. The continuous shift of weight and the resistance of movement will increase your cardiovascular health in no time.

why must everything be a waltz on a Friday nite?

I ask you, why?



because a foxtrot or a tango just wouldn't work on a Friday?   Seriously hadn't thought about this being waltz time, but yes!.  (Its Thursday today though 01/04/2024)

Right? Who knew?  And I've been listening to them... I mean, him, Bonobo, for years!. With the RP epiphany though  I got to say, I now  hate this dude. He can play like 25 friggin instruments.
Brilliantly! Taint fair. I had to tap out at the plastic recorder level.  Grrrrr.     Grrr x 25.                    But muchas amigo .  He puts me in a galaxy far, far away.



3/4 time can cover a lot of musical sins.
Very nice. Little “French movie” vibe with some Balkan tone. Lovely. 
Just bloody brilliant.
Whenever he tours live he usually has a great bunch of musicians with him, usually inclusding one or two excellent vocalists. At these he himself usually plays bass. Well worth seeing if he comes to your area.

The more I listen to this guy, the more I like his music. Gotta get that album. Thanks B&R
Just bloody brilliant.
Mesmerizing and not a Mesmer is sight!
after Sting's Russians, and then this track, left me pondering humanity.... on the one hand, despotic madness and mindless obiedience and then artistic brilliance.... and I guess it always has been and it will always be the same...

Yeah, it is quite something to see him play all those instruments at once!
this makes me very nervous but not in a good way
All of the emotions. Beautiful.
Very restful track. Like this 
I get goose bumps

Love Bonobo's work.  Like others, I had no idea it's just one person.  WOW.   Reminds me again what little talent I have...
I Like!
great combinations

Only 2 comments for this brilliant song?
I barely can describe the feelings while this plays. Out of speech.
