Nice little piece.
I'd suggest to keep the piano playing during the guitar solos or put something in (like a rhythm guitar) to keep up the harmonies. Only bass is a little thin for me.

spacedog,

Thanks for compliments. The older jazz styles tend to contribute to
the feeling of walk, or strut.

boehm,

I also did think it was missing something there, but wanted to
feature the nice guitar.

Thin would be a good description.

Will wait a bit for other comments, and try to re-do...

Thank you.

Very good old style jazz.

Personally I liked the guitar, bass and drum breaks. I think the problem is volume. You might try drastically lowering the piano volume during the sax parts. That may eliminate the extreme volume differences between the parts. Just my thoughts.

Made several modifications.

First Guenther,

I added RealTracks in song: ~938:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm JazzFreddie Sw 110
to play with the Lead guitar.

Mario,

I cut the piano level as you suggested.

Also cut couple of gotchas in instrument changes.

Same link in original post has changes.

Thanks folks!

Hi Frank,

What a great listen! This sounded like classic tin-pan alley to me. Nice

Best regards,

Enjoyable Jazz piece. Love the guitar solo and the horns don't sound too shabby either. Nice arrangement, which puts you in a good mood.

Nice job!

Cheers,
Mike

Tano,

I've been working with DS al Coda to create more elaborate
endings. This song was created some time ago. Also I actually liked the ending, bit
different. Thinking of live band type ending. Sorry didn't sit well with you.

Thanks for compliments.

jptjptjpt,

Glad you like the drums, and guitar. Thru listening to
you folks music, it has helped me a great deal in realizing
the part drums take. RT's on the guitar bounced against the
unique chords. Took a little while to settle on that version.

Thank you.

Noel,

The style is very old, chord progression very old, instrument selected
were old versions, I'm very OLD....
The style with the chords helped make the sound.

Thanks for compliments.

MikeK,

Glad you enjoyed the song. So far to avoid being banned from forums, have
not created songs with vocals. RT's are simply a joy to work with. Helps
us all create good sounds.

Mentioned vocals above due to fact been creating only instrumentals.
I've concentrated on creating easy and happy listening music(Mostly). Appreciate
your "Good mood" comment.

Again thanks.

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.
