We'll be recording eight of my Latin jazz compositions, all of which started life in BIAB. Today was the rehearsal, and this week we have two sessions.

The rest of the personnel is Tomas Martin Lopez, Latin percussion & leader, with Bill O'Connell (from Dave Valentin) on piano; Ruben Rodriguez (from Tito Puente & Mongo Santamaria), bass; Ivan Renta (from Ray Barretto & Arturo O'Farrill), sax; and Joel Rosenblatt (from Spyro Gyra) on drums. Bunch of heavy cats from the New York area.

See you on Thursday.

Cheers

Hey Matt, let us know when the CD is available for purchase. Sounds to me like it's going to be a "must listen".

If Brazilian Wish is any indication, which it is, I'll be anxiously awaiting when the disk goes to production. CD Baby, here I come.

Yeah! Matt's gonna have a new album..YAY!

Thanks, everybody, for your support! We got six of my tunes recorded today. It's Latin jazz rhythms grafted onto my normal Brazilian charts. It cooks.

Tomorrow, two more of mine, three of Bill O'Connell's, and a standard.

There's nothing quite like having your compositions come alive. Without BIAB, I could not have done it.

I can't wait. I hope that someone brought a camcorder, and we're going to get a taste of this on YouTube!

I have one of these, what a bargain!

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10902821

The only problem with it is if you click the button for zoom or wide, you can hear the click. Other than that, it's a pretty nifty little camera, and will do High Def!

Hope all went well. I see Diana Krall just released a Brazilian flavoured CD, Quiet Nights. She makes my hair stand on end.....and her husband's. LOL Elvis Costello.

And she's from BC just north of PG music.....

One of my favorite singers, John! Just gotta lover her voice, her piano playing, and well.... I guess Elvis is lucky, and two beautiful baby boys, too.

Diana Krall is one of my favorites, too.

Go the other six tunes in the can today. Good stuff. Now on to the wonderful world of post production. It's not my CD to produce, but given that I wrote eight of the tunes, I will help out.

So, Matt, this is not going to be under your name? Well, let me know who it will be, and I'll still buy it, and I'll still be waiting for your next album.

Right, it's for Tomas Martin Lopez, a longtime friend and percussionist in my band. He asked me to write the charts. He really needed a CD of his own, since the rest of us have one we can sell at concerts.

Well, I hope it's going to be available on CD Baby. Any of the other musicians who have disks there too, I'd appreciate knowing about them.

Of course, I'm sure Luiz Dias will also appreciate the music.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
