final jazz composition

for the final jazz composition, I have made several changes compare to my draft. The first thing is to get rid of a lot of jumpy 16th note and replaced it with either 8th or quarter notes, which made it sound much more relaxing. Second, I have changed the last 5 bars so it sounds similar to the rest of the composition. I have added some dynamics change as well in the music sheet although it doesn’t sound like there’s any in the recording for some reason.
