I was a major Santana fan during their first run...a fan to the extent that I got really interested in what was happening rhythmically with his band. An older friend told me to look into as he called it Afro/Cuban jazz. It fascinated me and, while I never became learned those rhythms to this day grab my attention. Heck, maybe Ricky Ricardo set me up for it when I was a kid. smile

So thanks for stirring those memories with this production. It all works for me -- FWIW. Cool solo.

P.S. Duke Ellington has to be absolutely the classiest of the class acts. Janice and I are both mesmerized by him and the band. Really like something from another universe.

Ah, Janice and Bud -

So wonderful to hear those words from you about the Duke (and his alter ego Billy Strayhorn). Yes, from another universe in another time. I've been waiting around for Matt to answer the quiz question but so far nada. I suppose he must have departed for Christmas vacation.

I'm glad you liked my version of this great tune ... and Merry Christmas.

Dean

Well, I'm no Matt, but here's my guess: "Don't get around much anymore"?
Not saying I'm right (would be nice to get a confirmation either way) but hey, at least I'm playing the game! smile

Dean,

I agree, the Latin thing really does work for you! I've always liked the Latin beats, and have been a Santana fan as well. Really enjoyed this one!

I think you, although technically not a singer, have the soul for it. I love the old jazz standards. Nice job!! Enjoyable track as always! Take care. Greg

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
