Following is my link to my latest song, I Never Found That Rainbow. I always appreciate the feedback from this Forum.
Ballad: JBALPFER.STY
732: Bass of Neil Swainson (what a player)
742: Piano Miles Black (Can add no words that would add to his stature as a player)
937: Guitar Oliver Gannon- straight ahead and steady
1248: Piano solo Mike LeDonne (This was a new feature for me, sweet.)
Terry Clarke Drums (brushes)
All together makes a fine recording. Please take a listen.

Also, while at Soundcloud please take a listen to Fool of Fools, same RealBand personnel. PG Music wouldn't let me post as not an original. I did purchase the appropriate streaming rights. Once again, thanks again for allowing us to create all we can be.

Hi Carolyne
Remember -you gotta have rain to get a rainbow.
Very smooth track. Liked it a lot.
We're on holiday and Wi-Fi a bit sketchy so it's great to be actually able to play.
Cheers
Ian
PS I like Fool of Fools too!

Hi Carolyne, wow what a great vox! We've got some great jazzers aboard so you'll fit right in. I am not one of them but I can recognize talent when I hear it. You have a Billie Holiday vibe going on here and I really enjoyed it. Keep em coming and a sincere welcome to perhaps the greatest bunch of musicians on this planet.

Hi Caroline,

awsome voice!
And I like the arrangement and mix.
Only thing that disturbs me a little is that the high notes of the piano solo are on the left. As a piano player I expect them to be on the right.

Thank you for that, Guenter. Not sure I can switch solo side now, but I'll never forget the lesson for future use.

Very impressive Carolyne, as is just about everything you've done before. Great style and choice of instrumentation. Very well portrayed.
Thanks for sharing

Thanks Janice & Bud, I listened to your tunes and well. "Don't Give It Away, reminds me of an old blues song performed by Ruth Brown about a chair. Lyric was pretty risqué for the time, today is nothing. Enjoyed.

Carolyne,

Beautiful vocal. And nice backing. A very good mix. Like Guenter, I expect the piano to sound as though you are sitting at it yourself - although I've never heard a discussion on the topic... The opening piano "solo" seems a little "out of place" for the song that follows - it is fast and a bit "showy" while the song is relaxed and "lazy" (feel-wise, not the players or vocals, of course) - so that opening solo should have that same type of easy, relaxed feel to take you into that beautiful vocal...

I heard your song in the PG music radio. Nice tune, thanks for sharing. Yes, the piano solo sounds good. I usually find the auto-generated solos in BIAB rather unusable but this one works.

Loved it all, Carolyne..at first I thought I was listening to Dianne Schur! You did a great job conducting your combo, and the composition is first-class. Great work!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
