An old school jazzy tune all with real tracks: The combo is Jazz Swing with electric guitar, and the soloist is track 442. Let me know what you think. MERRY XMAS!!

Nice mix, I liked it. Take Me To The Ocean sounds good too but I'm not a believer in evolution so we differ there. That said the three songs I listened to were all well made.

Greg, another great number. Nice and smooth, the rhythm guitar works really nicely, and both the lyrics and your delivery are superb. Not too busy, just right. The solos just fitted in perfectly, like inserting the last pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. Nice.
Thanks for sharing
Trevor

This is a wonderful song. Lyrics, arrangement, mix, performance - all top-shelf, top class jazz.

Fantastic music!

Nice Greg....and as a bass fiddle player I even more enjoyed it. Very nice mellow (in the positive sense of the word) groove. Fine vocal delivery and mix.

Happy National Jukebox Day!

To celebrate, you could purchase a Jukebox... OR just access the Jukebox feature in Band-in-a-Box®!

Plus, the Jukebox will continue to play while you use other programs, providing your favorite music for continued background listening pleasure!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
