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.

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!
