Wow! what an amazing song. The vocals sound amazing. I feel like I'm transported to an old time cabaret listening to this. Great job.

Hello, Janice & Bud

It is a very legitimate blues.
Very orthodox!
The vocal of Janice is perfect for such music.
Her vocal accompanied with the piano echoed to the bottom of my heart.
Even if I use blues chord progression I can never write blues.
I really admire your works.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

What a great collaboration.

This is just so cool form the very first note. Video slots in just so well. Glad you remembered!

Top effort, J & B Team.

Backtrack sounds great, love the piano especially.

And killer job on the mix, Bud! Just about perfect to these ears.


Thanks Dave for nice remarks. We are big fans of your productions and that makes your remarks all the more meaningful.

Excellent work all round and a great complement to a great song.

This is a well written blues tune. The vocal is to die for. I enjoyed the dancing and the gymnastics that only could be delivered by an extraordinarily talented singer. The mix is spot on and the real standout is the killer bass line and tone. Who woulda thunk that a mando solo would work so well? Enjoyed the video and am glad to hear this one again, Tom

Dang Alan, being mentioned in the same sentence (same world!) as those guys lit Janice up like a Christmas tree. You are waaaaay too kind. We appreciate it very much!!

"Comping" re-generations to get the solos sorted - clever stuff. I'd not though of that strategy.
Good vocal over a nice backing.

Now to address the pack of elephants in the room. Yes, one elephant would not have been sufficient. If you continue to post Janice singing this way, I can't guarantee no one is going to steal her away to sing anything and everything under the sun. Have you considered maybe having her hit a wrong note here or there? Maybe use bad intonation on occasion? Just suggestions of course. I have a feeling she may not even be capable of such things.

In all seriousness, tell me/teach me your methods for melody embellishment. Is it both of you playing off of each other? I'm ALWAYS impressed with anyone that can take a 1 syllable word and craft it into multi-syllables effortlessly; YET have it sound like your aren't just doing it to do it. It's just great and smart melody creation. My God, it's awesome!


Wow! Thank you so much for those comments. It means a LOT!

This is Bud here...Janice is and has always been extremely modest regarding her vocal talents - yeah I biased! She had never sung at all other than in church as a kid until a friend (the late great Randy Howard -- check out our website) heard her singing under her breath at a bluegrass jam. We had been married seven years before I heard her sing! He encouraged her and within a few months she was singing lead and harmony in our bluegrass band (and playing rhythm guitar/mandolin). The best bluegrass singers are what we've always called "bent note" singers and Janice developed her style from that and later carried it into new genres with BiaB as we slowly moved away from bluegrass. She had always listened to blues and some jazz even while we were deep into bluegrass. Thank you so much for noting that. She doesn't really think that much about how to do it or even what's gonna come out smile I think she's a human saxophone! She'll blush for an hour if she sees this response.

Again thank you very much!

Bud

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
