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.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
