Jazz Jam? is just a jam I did after returning home from my photo shot vacation/holiday. Band-in-a-Box supplied the backing tracks and I just jammed along.

I hope you like it for what it is.

BiaB style = Relaxed Jazz Quartet (85RS) which contains RTS
1-Acoustic Jazz Bass Sw 140
2-Piano rhythm Jazz Sw 140
3-Guitar Electric Rhythm Jazz Sw 140
4-JazzTerryClark RealDrums Jazz brushes #1

I deleted the Alto sax leads and replaced them with my Jay Turner J136 jazz box guitar played through Amplitude 3 preset clean amp-ambience SR.

I generated the BiaB tracks, copied them to Sonar 2Xa then recorded my guitar.

Hi Mario,

It's good to see you again in the forum.

At the moment, I'm sitting here proofreading school reports, it's 4:30 a.m., and I'm welcoming the pleasant distraction that your music has given me. That was some mighty fine playing (as always)! My only criticism is that when it finished, I thought "What? Is it over?". They say it's always good to leave the audience wanting more smile

Thanks for giving me some good music to listen to this morning!

All the best,
Noel

Fun time Mario, sounds good.

Where ya been?

PS: I had a little gig in Biloxi last week and as I drove by the IP I could not help but think of you guys and our little meeting there a few months ago. I hope all is well.

Later,

Thanx Noel, Danny and Guenter for listening and the very nice comments, they are greatly appreciated.

Noel and Danny, here is the reasons I haven’t been on the forums much lately:
1-2.5 week vacation in Florida
2-after that trip work yard work and sickness, both the wife and myself, keep us very busy.
3-1.5 week photo shoot vacation in Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland with a professional photographer.
4-more outside work but I hurt my back and groin so I’ve got sometime to spend on my computer.

Thanx for thinking of me!

Mario -

Nice to see you back in the Showcase... your offerings are always interesting - and I look forward to them.

This was quite enjoyable - very "real and organic" - musical.

Keep it up.

Greetings, Mario! It just hit me while listening to this cool jam that, as much I've read from you in the other forum sections, I do believe this was the first time I actually heard something of yours shocked

This sounds like a real group of players in a small venue, just playing. Very relaxing, and I also wanted it to go on a bit more! Nice guitar, Mario!

It has a brilliant free-live vibe! I just love the tone on your guitar. It's a wonderfully raw and expressive feel and the licks are alive.

I am there!
