' "Georgia on My Mind" is a song written in 1930 by Hoagy Carmichael (music) and Stuart Gorrell (lyrics). It is the official state song of the U.S. state of Georgia. Gorrell wrote the lyrics for Hoagy's sister, Georgia Carmichael [1]. However, the lyrics of the song are ambiguous enough to refer either to the state or to a woman named "Georgia". ' wikipedia

The most famous, of course, Tono, was Ray Charles' version. For all intents and purposes, it was 'his song.' Carmichael also wrote Stardust, as well as a slew of other famous songs. Of course, his most 'famous' and most played song, played by millions of young girls any time they walk by a piano would be 'Heart and Soul!' LOL

This is the first version of Georgia on my mind I ever heard. My grandfather used to play a lot of Django Reinhardt songs for my brother and I. He'd grab his violin and play the Stephan Grapelly-parts. Sometimes a friend of my grandparents would sit in and play the guitar. Fantastic.

Georgia on my mind - Quintette du Hot Club de France

While this video doesn't have too much of Georgia On My Mind, it shows some of it. This album is Ray Charles and The Count Basie Orchestra, two fantastic entities that never played together. The album, Ray Sings, Basie Swings is a must have album if you're a jazz lover.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sf0Qqr85CgE

And, this particular album has ties, in a family sort of way, to one of our own here in the forums.

Cute Rob, thanks.
The "Who's On First" skit is one of my favorites.
In the late 70s a couple of comics (I forget who) did a take-off with The Who, Guess Who and Yes.
It was pretty funny.

I think I've mentioned this before, but the FirstBassman moniker is indeed a play on words ... being left-handed when I played baseball as a child I was always told to play first base and the first instrument I started playing was bass.
It is the same name I use on every forum and so it is plastered all over the Internet.
Note - there is an eBay account with that same name but it is not me.

Can't stop myself telling this true story here about Stefan Grapelli, as he's been mentioned above a couple of times.
In the late 80's I briefly shared a flat with a guy who was the night chef at a major international hotel here in Melbourne, Australia. He came home one morning as I was going out to work, with this gem. The previous night his night waiter had taken a late order for a meal from a room and on delivering it, saw a violin on the bed.
"Oh, you play the violin, how lovely, I play the violin", the waiter had burbled as he placed the meal on the table. The hotel guest, according to the waiter, had simply smiled and said, "Oh, I play a little", or words to that effect. Absoloutely no grandstanding, no chest beating, no nothing. When the waiter got back to the kitchen he mentioned to my mate Peter the chef that the guests face was vaugely familair. They looked up the current guest/room list. Sure enough: Grapelli, in town for a concert. Peter said the waiter didn't know whether to go back and ask for an autograph or just find a hole in the ground to crawl in to and die of embarrassment there!

Cheers,
John

Gary




Hope it was OK for little boys, too. Cause I sure played it, and I'm no girl. I liked it cause it had a rock 'n' roll feel to it. My parents were OK with it, because my sister was taking piano lessons too, and I'm sure they thought the duet was cute.

Without question, "Heart and Soul" is Hoagy Carmichael's most played (but not best) song, though almost everyone who has heard it played, or even played it, has no idea about the name of the song.

A very odd song, in that sense!


Among Hoagy's other songs are these two gems: "Skylark" and "(Up a) Lazy River".

The lyricist on the latter was the uncle Sidney of Wesley Dick, who has the incredible BiaB site:

Tono (and EVERYBODY else who's reading!),

I have a movie recommendation with a tie in, my 3rd favorite all-time movie!


"The Best Years of Our Lives" from 1946 won 7 Oscars, including "Best Picture". It is universally considered one of the 100 greatest American films ever made.

Though it's an old movie, the story is incredible, and still packs a punch. Ironically, it's very timely, now, at this moment in American history. (The story is set at the close of World War II.)

Without giving anything away, one of the actors received 2 Oscars for the same performance (the only time in Academy Award history).

Be forewarned, there are no fantastic special effects or big explosions. It won't matter. You'll get sucked into the story. The people seem real, not like actors acting.

It's unlikely that you will ever think of the so-called "Greatest Generation" of Americans in the same way again, after seeing this film.

"The Best Years of Our Lives" is more than a movie; it's a work of art!


The tie in?

The local bar (joint) owner, "Butch" is played by Hoagy Carmichael.

This is your chance to see the guy that wrote "Georgia on My Mind", "Stardust", "Skylark", "The Nearness of You", "(Up a) Lazy River", and "Heart and Soul" in action!

"Butch" plays "(Up a) Lazy River" and "Among My Souvenirs", among others, on the piano!!!

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
