Back for another listen...


Dear "VideoTrack"...

Thank you for your enthusiastic comments on "The Rain Song"! That's what happens when you've got a "Band-in-the-Box".

Do you have any productions that I could listen to?

Sincerely,

LOREN

This is a really sexy song. The female vocal parts are great, and the lyrics themselves are sexy.

The arrangement is also sexy. Everything is sexy. I love music like this.

As Austin Powers: says "Ladies and Gentleman, Mr. Burt Bacharach."

(You have to know the movie to know why this is the highest compliment. It's just cool.)

Write some more like this please!!!

Seriously good stuff - I'll add the backing reminded me a bit of Michael Franks.
Wonderful performance by both of you and a genre not heard often here.

Firstly, everything about this production reminds us of the void of jazz tunes posted here. Given the vast number of jazz styles and RT’s that is even more unfortunate. But this song certainly made the wait worthwhile.

We’ve several times watched the great late 50’s film featuring an afternoon at the Newport Jazz Festival. This song while packed with nuances and complexities reminds us of the open airy feel of many of performances at that festival.

We could parse out everything we like and discuss it but this is one that we prefer just kicking back and enjoying the totality of the wonderful arrangement and vocals.

The word that comes to mind and best describes our feelings is “classy.”

Well done y’all! Sounds like you two are having fun.

Hello, Bud; hello, Ms. Janice...

I believe the documentary you described is "Jazz on a Summer's Day", directed by Bert Stern in 1958. Yes, it is a dream of a film about jazz music with gorgeous color cinematography and amazingly well-recorded performances.

If "The Rain Song" brought forth that "open and airy" association in your mind, then I'm humbled. It's a nice to thing to say.

"Classy" is certainly how I feel about Ms. Grace's performance. She seized upon the (hopefully) sunny feel of the song on the first take, which was done remotely as we live in different cities.

Thank you for communicating your pleasure with the song in such a colorful way!

Most sincerely,

LOREN

Dear Ms. Cooper...

Yeah, it was kind of short, wasn't it? So short, that Ms. Grace only charged me half of her usual price for recording my songs. So, now, I've learned a neat trick on how to save money...

Just kidding (about saving money, that is!).

Thank you for listening and also for liking what you heard, Ms. Cooper!

Sincerely,

LOREN

Hello, "PeterF"...

Michael Franks really created his own genre, didn't he? He was a stylist who produced truly relaxing music with memorable lyrics. Certainly something for songwriters in any genre to emulate, for sure.

Thank you for listening and commenting, "PeterF"!

Sincerely,

LOREN

Howdy, David Snyder...

Here's some definitions of the word, "sexy" that I looked up on the Web:

sex·y [ˈseksē] ADJECTIVE

1) sexually attractive or exciting

2) sexually aroused

3) exciting; appealing

I'll take the third definition so people won't think we produced the song without wearing any clothes -- presuming that on-lookers would consider such a sight "arousing" laugh !

Thank you for listening and for your titillating comments, sir!

Sincerely,

LOREN

P.S. I know the movie!

Dear Loren,

A very nice and cool bossa nova tune!
Your vocal and the female vocal are very pleasant.
The melody is also very bossa nova.
The way to use flute and strings is splendid.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Sincerely,

Shigeki Adachi
