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.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, there are 50+ new features, 202 RealTracks, and more!

We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from program users- there are several sources: our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

This is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2020, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020: click here to review.
