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.

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!
