I didn't want to be the first, but now I am. I wonder why nobody has replied yet, because I think, this is an excellent BIAB work. It's really a sexy sound.
Only one thing disturbs me a little: the tempo changes of the drums. Whenever I feel in the mood of one tempo it changes and I must arrange with a new one. I'd prefer the slow (halftime) tempo, but that's just a matter of taste.

Great tune but the tempo changes also distract me. The drums suit the piano solo, 2'10"ish, tho'!

Thanks for the comments and the time to listen, BTW, nothing wrong on being the first one to comment, somebody has to. Regarding the style it is: _BAL2AB1.STY (JazzBal Doub-Time-B(in2) (60 RS)), which has double time on the B section and the middle chorus, although like you said Guenter, it is a matter of taste, it is not uncommon this type of transition specially on slow ballads where conga drums is also introduced in those parts. Thanks again.

LOVED IT

Lounge music at its best

Back in the days when we were not playing we used to seek out places that played this style.

It will always be a favorite genre of music for me.

Two thumbs up!

CubanPete,
Very cool sound. I like the tempo and mood swings. What about the piano solo: BIAB or human? I wish I could play like that!

Me too! No, the piano solo is also a real track.
Thanks for listening.

I'll chime in....

I do like the vibe/feel of this tune and it's well put together.
It captures an older era of music pretty well.

Although, I agree that the tempo changes are 'distracting' and change the mood too drastically..

That does not diminish the enjoyable, easy listening quality of the tune as a whole.

Keep up the good work Cubanpete.

Carry on....

Hey Pete, this is smooth indeed. Very well put together arrangement. I, for one, LOVE the tempo changes. That's just how the greats would mix it up while still staying smooth.

Awesome tune, Sir!

Cheers,
Mike

Loved it tempo changes and all. In fact the tempo/mood changes reminded me of a girl I use to know long long ago.

I like the change-ups. Distracting -- or attention getting? They might be the two sides of the same coin. It just depends how you look at it. Cool tune and nice playing all around.

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
