Well I'm on a roll this month. Just To Get Back To You Chicago/Dixieland swing tune, using RT of course. Somewhat different format for me but I'm experimenting. If there are any Dixieland music purist out there, your thoughts please. Dixieland Medley: Teddy Trio with Miles, Neil and Clark rhythm, Trumpet, clarinet and trombone:

JUST TO GET BACK TO YOU
I'm rocking through the east side
Rolling through the west side
I'm walking on the wild side
Just To Get Back To You.
I'm chillin' through the north side,
Sunning on the south side
I'm traveling on the light side
Just to prove I'm true.
No matter what direction
Who cares what route I take
As long as your sweet lovin'
directs every step I make
I'm struttin' on the high side,
with no detour in view.
I'm looking on the bright side
Just To Get Back To You.

Hi Carolyne

A really good boppy feel, good lyrics, and great choice of instruments for the solos. Very traditional!

You've certainly got a winning sound and a terrific voice.

Nice blend and use of the RT's. Enjoyed it.

Wonderful Jazz voice Carolyne. Nicely arranged and produced. For me the instrumental break goes on a little long but this is not a genre I have much experience with so that may be the norm of how it's done...

Great to have another gal on the forums. Keep 'em coming.

Carolyne,
I loved it. I've done a few dixieland and swing things. This really hits the mark. I like the medley RT.

As a big lover/listener of 'old jazz', I'd definitely say you nail the genre. Even the lyrics, vocabulary and all, is top notch.

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!

Thanks Tangmo!
