Hi, friends !

I wrote this tune a long time ago
but only now when I´ve got the
Daniettes backing up my vocals
have I been able to get it done !:))

It is a jazzy tune with a small solo
played on my fender !:))

Written in BIAB, mixed with Mixcraft 8,
compression and reverb used sparsely

The Style used is _SJCOOLG.STY (Smooth Jazz Cool Swsw 16)
and the instros are:

Bass:902, Piano:1995,Drums: Realdrums Smoot Jazz Cool,
Guitar 1: 1228, Daniettes: 3063 Vocal AAhs

Here are the links:

http://app.box.com/s/bzme9zm2tejhw4vs01s2hhhgbxhhkhbz

...and here are the lyrics:

It´s Only Just A Dream (Words & Music by Norman Wibe)

When day turns into night, babe
and you´re not here beside me, dear
I´ll dream that I can feel you there
beneath my quilt, so light
I can hear your breathin´,almost quitely
it lessens my anxiety

´cause I know you, I feel your scent so sweet
and I love you, just more by every beat,
beat of my heart, that is the part
that is struck by Love´s own dart. Oh, babe !!!

I´ll turn around t´wards you, babe
I wanna hug you so sweetly dear
I wanna feel you close and near
and that is what I´ll do
caressin´ you so quitely, gently,
lovin´ you so dearly, dear

cause I know you, I feel your scent so sweet
and I love you, just more by every beat,
beat of my heart, that is the part
that is struck by Love´s own dart. Oh, babe !!!

Solo

You kiss me cutely in my sleep, bahe
I can feel the moist right on my lip
I can touch your tongue with my own tip
and I know I´m in it deep
you turn me on, my darlin, spiritually
though it´s only just virtually

cause I know you, I feel your scent so sweet
and I love you, just more by every beat,
beat of my heart, that is the part
that is struck by Love´s own dart. Oh, babe !!!

It´s only just a dream
You know I´m in it deep
You know I´m deep in sleep
It´s only just a dream
You know I´m in it deep
You know I´m deep in sleep,
sleep

Cheers
Dani

Yes! That jazz sound is very nice with the smooth vocal.

And a swing feel is ALWAYS good for us.

"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!"

Great vocal and a fine mix too.

Enjoyed it!

Hello, Dani

Really nice chord progression!
The melody on the top is also wonderful.
The modulations are very pleasant.
As Torrey said, your vocal sounds better than ever!
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

As I have said many times before, I really enjoy your chord progressions. Now this time you surprised me with a well placed solo. The notes you chose were perfect. Your vocal sounds great and this is another outstanding Dani love song, Tom

Really nice job on this smile The groove is fantastic, and your vocals compliment the jazzy vibes perfectly. Plus - as someone else mentioned, the chords selection here is very unique. The whole experience is just really nice on the ears.

Great work and thanks for sharing!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

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.
