So Sweet My Little Girl is my favorite song on this album. So beautiful. I like how you can hear the inhaling/breathing between notes on the soft trumpet passages.

There seems to be some mic distortion on some of very soft passages but it doesn’t do anything to take away from the beauty of this song. I thought at first it may be my speakers or non-fill, but I hear it on other sources.
