We'll be recording eight of my Latin jazz compositions, all of which started life in BIAB. Today was the rehearsal, and this week we have two sessions.

The rest of the personnel is Tomas Martin Lopez, Latin percussion & leader, with Bill O'Connell (from Dave Valentin) on piano; Ruben Rodriguez (from Tito Puente & Mongo Santamaria), bass; Ivan Renta (from Ray Barretto & Arturo O'Farrill), sax; and Joel Rosenblatt (from Spyro Gyra) on drums. Bunch of heavy cats from the New York area.

See you on Thursday.

Hey Matt, let us know when the CD is available for purchase. Sounds to me like it's going to be a "must listen".

If Brazilian Wish is any indication, which it is, I'll be anxiously awaiting when the disk goes to production. CD Baby, here I come.

Yeah! Matt's gonna have a new album..YAY!

Thanks, everybody, for your support! We got six of my tunes recorded today. It's Latin jazz rhythms grafted onto my normal Brazilian charts. It cooks.

Tomorrow, two more of mine, three of Bill O'Connell's, and a standard.

There's nothing quite like having your compositions come alive. Without BIAB, I could not have done it.

I can't wait. I hope that someone brought a camcorder, and we're going to get a taste of this on YouTube!

I have one of these, what a bargain!

The only problem with it is if you click the button for zoom or wide, you can hear the click. Other than that, it's a pretty nifty little camera, and will do High Def!

Hope all went well. I see Diana Krall just released a Brazilian flavoured CD, Quiet Nights. She makes my hair stand on end.....and her husband's. LOL Elvis Costello.

And she's from BC just north of PG music.....

One of my favorite singers, John! Just gotta lover her voice, her piano playing, and well.... I guess Elvis is lucky, and two beautiful baby boys, too.

Diana Krall is one of my favorites, too.

Go the other six tunes in the can today. Good stuff. Now on to the wonderful world of post production. It's not my CD to produce, but given that I wrote eight of the tunes, I will help out.

So, Matt, this is not going to be under your name? Well, let me know who it will be, and I'll still buy it, and I'll still be waiting for your next album.

Right, it's for Tomas Martin Lopez, a longtime friend and percussionist in my band. He asked me to write the charts. He really needed a CD of his own, since the rest of us have one we can sell at concerts.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.new.htm
