Hi Floyd,

Thanks for those words of encouragement. And, also, for your kind thoughts regarding Di. She's holding steady, doing slightly better.

Brest to you & yours.

Hi Robert.

Many thanks for all that! Glad the song works for you.

Di's days as a singer are drawing to a close ... she simply doesn't have the strength to sing anymore. She tried one last week and it wore her completely out.

But I'll continue to make music as long as i can ... or until someone tells me it's not worth listening to anymore!

Wishing you the very best,

Alan

Great work, and as always - thanks for sharing!



You are much too kind, Deryk! I'm glad this one pleased you ... it's one of my very favorites that I created using all BIAB tracks. Again, thanks you!

Hello, Alan

Yes, this is George Benson!
It is not the fusion or vocal sound that he recorded with Warner Bros, but this is his original jazz sound.
Very cool and pleasant!
I love this very much.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best wishes for Di's recovery.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi Al.
I’ve been so wrapped up with my stuff that I haven’t had chance to hear many other members tracks recently,so I thought I’d have a listen,especially as you’ve been so enthusiastic about my work.
Well this is a cool groovy song,love the solo work and the nice easy rhythm,I shall explore the jazz tracks a bit more myself I think.
Sorry to hear about Di,hope she’s on the mend.

Thanks again for your support mate.
R.

Hui Deryk,

Always a pleasure when you drop in with your kind words. And yes, it's written with the "lounge lizards" in mind! Glad you liked it ... thanks!

Hi Shigeki,

Thank you very much for taking some time to listen. I'm delighted you liked it! And yes, this is original george Benson style - when he still had a lot of Wes Montgomery influence in his writing and playing. Again, thank you so much! Wishing you the very best.

Alan

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
