Hi, friends !:))

I was working on one of my
old tunes(from 1992)but I just
could not get it right so I decided
to start from scratch on a new Bossa instead !
As you can hear I´ve been dreamin´again:

http://app.box.com/s/i31j86dsknndowk4mk5e

Mixed with mixcraft 6

Style: BOSANEW STY
Instruments used:

Bass: 33 Ac string bass
Piano: 1 Ac Piano
Drums: Realdrums RD Bossa Brushes
Guitar: 25 Nyl string guit
Soloist in the backing: 542 Guitar El rhytm Dreamin´EV 085
Soloist as solo: 67 Tenor Sax

And here are the lyrics:

DREAMIN´AGAIN (by Dani)

Walkin´alone, down a street
of this snowclad town, no one to meet
as I push my way thru the drifted snow
can´t feel the cold, though it´s warmer inside, I know
I´m homeward bound, coming home to you, that is when
I realize I´ve been dreamin ´this way again

Talkin´ alone, me and myself
taking your pic down from the shelf
got the picture of you in my hand and my mind
thinkin´ ´bout what we had and what was left behind
I´m homeward bound, coming home to you, that is when
I realize I´ve been dreamin ´this way again

Solo

Sleepin´alone, no one beside me
´cause you are gone, longing for thee
makes me dream all over and over in vain
but my mind just keeps puttin´it on sustain
I´m homeward bound, coming home to you that is when
I realize I´ve been dreamin ´this way again

Walkin´alone, down a street
of this snowclad town, no one to meet
as I push my way thru the drifted snow
can´t feel the cold, though it´s warmer inside, I know
I´m homeward bound, coming home to you, that is when
I realize I´ve been dreamin ´this way again

Dani,

Smooth. A good write. And a good mix. Terrific vocal! Cool chord changes. I like that... "This isn't working... I'll just write a new one!"

you have such a wonderful asynchronous melodic sense, this song especially, as it is jazz, has a Bert Bacharach vibe.

super write!

much enjoyed!

favourite all of my life not to forget

A really nice feel happening there. And I liked the vocal harmonies. Perfect tempo. Nice job. Sax intro and solo fitted in real well.
Regards
Trevor

Love the smooth jazz and the harmonies are wonderful Dani. I must admit that "thee" in there kind of threw me otherwise I really liked the conversational lyrics too.

Always enjoy your beautiful arrangements and lovely voice.
