Jazz-Just fall in love with the music

Hi all,

Been workin with Magix & BIAB

Biab - ZZBOSSA.STY Bossa Nova style _ snippets of piano
Magix- Jazz- Late in the bar

Creative Commons Licence

I was trying to get some counter-point harmony going...
Ended up making a simple list of chords that resolve the piano chords en-harmonically to this song. Hope you like it

Hey, there, "LPman"!

Where there's jazz, you will always find me, toes tappin' n' fingers snappin'! cool

"Just Fall In Love With The Music" is quick, hot, and cool, and all at the same time. It's like a montage, but of sounds instead of images. It's got tension and it feels as though a lot of musical energy is about to be unleashed. The instruments sound incredibly realistic.

Okay, "LPman", you got my attention. So, uhhh, like, what's next?

LOREN

Very impressive.

You've managed to capture multiple riffs and combined them very well to produce a very streamlined arrangement.

A good listen, for sure.

Hi Loren

thanks you for your re-post to me. I see you did a collaboration

Coffee Talk
Lyrics by LOREN(a.k.a. "bluage")
Music by Shigeki Adachi

I like your how you sing your own lyrics, the words are so easy to follow. I racked my brains trying to figure if vocals would fit to this song.

It is like a montage... I think that's why I gave up! The idea of adding vocals seemed plausible at first...

Thanks for posting and describing my song so eloquently. To answer your question; what's next??? I don't know... the Last song I made on soundcloud was a heavy metal song "Just Run" It was the first song my brother stated; "that it was believable". The lyrics are hard to understand cause the vocalist sounds like a demon monster!

I go where the music takes me... while chord mapping song projects.

Thank you VideoTrack.
I worked on this track for 2 weeks and I am over saturated listening to it.... I can't tell (myself) if it's good yet... I am only comfortable hearing this song in a loop. If I hear it as a single.... I feel lost in it.

thanks so much for your post!

HI,

Lots of variety in this. Many different sounds but all coordinated expertly. The various elements keep it fresh throughout. I particularly enjoyed the guitar riffs and the overall bass line. Very nice ... sounds live and natural.

Great work on this! It is obvious you put a lot of thought and time into this - and it pays off smile I loved the articulate weaving of all the instruments. I loved the arrangement on it, and the groove as well and how everything just falls into place.

Fantastic work, you should be proud of this! Thanks for sharing smile

"LPman"...

You're welcome, and thanks for listening to my collaboration with Shigeki Adachi in his song, "Coffee Time" smile

Concerning the possibility of lyrics for "Just Fall In Love With The Music", I recommend that you give a listen to a few jazz vocalists of yesteryear who specialized in composing lyrics for instrumental jazz compositions, and usually with fast tempos: the Lambert, Hendricks & Ross trio, vocalist King Pleasure, and Eddie Jefferson.

Those artists popularized the use of what is called "vocalese", which according to Wikipedia "...is a style or musical genre of jazz singing wherein words are sung to melodies that were originally part of an all-instrumental composition or improvisation."

You may enjoy listening to Lambert, Hendricks & Ross applying vocalese techniques to the Duke Ellington instrumental jazz composition, "Cottontail". Also, check out King Pleasure's rendition of "Moody's Mood For Love". Eddie Jefferson's performance of "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", composed by Joe Zawinul and played by tenor saxophonist Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, is a fine and soulful example of vocalese performed at a slower tempo.

This is different from what is known as "scat" singing, which is vocal improvisation of sounds based on the words, or lyrics, of actual songs.

A fine example of "scat" singing can heard in Sarah Vaughn's version of "Lullaby of Birdland", composed by the late British pianist, George Shearing, with lyrics by George David Weiss.

Thank you so much for your post Al-David. I appreciate that you can hear all various elements changes; too keep the ears focus, fresh throughout the song.

I was worried that there are too many changes and the song would be only recognized as a "hack gimmick." This song (to me) was an experiment to find if BIAB can help me with a counter-point harmony chord progressions. I will definitely take shot this again...

Thanks so much LOREN for your post and references which I found below:


Lambert Hendricks & Ross - Cotton Tail

King Pleasure :Moody's Mood For Love

"Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", composed by Joe Zawinul

Sarah Vaughn's version of "Lullaby of Birdland"

I enjoyed listening to them, and will try to learn from these arrangements.
Thanks so much for your thoughtful post!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
