Hey all. Been quite awhile since I've posted - been going through a bit of a dry spell I guess. Nonetheless, I caught some inspiration recently via a Hugh Laurie (yeah, that guy) rendition of an old Jazz standard - St. James Infirmary. The particular performance was captured in New Orleans and had a beautiful slack feel to it.

So, here's my RB take on the same general progression:

Ain't Jane's Conservatory: a Contrafact

8 Tracks 77BPM - 4:37
RB Style: _J085GTB - Hoagy Jazz Ballad Quartet(85 RS)
RD: JazzModernTerryClarke^6-Cycling
RT481: Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Ballad Sw 085
RT749: Piano, Acoustic, Solo-Accomp Jazz Ballad Sw 085
RT487: Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Jazz Ballad Sw 085
RT490: Sax, Alto, Jazz Ballad Sw 085
RT492: Trombone, Jazz Ballad Sw 085
RT494: Trumpet, Jazz Ballad Sw 085
RT2290: Horn Section, Rhythm SlowPop Ev16 065

Don,

That is very nicely done. And an enjoyable listen. A good mix and a nice variety on the instrumentation.

Being that I don't listen to a lot of jazz, it is a bit long (for me) - so it may be the same for others (just guessing).

Also, keep in mind... this is a fairly small community. When you get several posters who just post their song and do not otherwise participate (as has happened recently), you are left with just a couple of "regulars" commenting on submissions. Some things get overlooked...

I liked it.

Thanks Floyd. I, too, am often a guilty one... Lurking but only comment when something particularly exceptional is posted.

My comment was mostly self assessment. The pieces that I have previously posted have usually garnered at least a comment or two... They usually been dead on if I've been willing to be accept the input... Ya those few of us that still even can spell jazz are often second sisters here and elsewhere.

Regardless, i'm continually blown away by the biab/rb styles... It said hoagy and by golly that is what my ears heard so just had to see what I could make of it.

Again, thx for the feedback.

Good job.

Yeah, on the back story, I don't think too many folk know that Hugh is an outstanding piano player and guitarist who loves the Blues and Jazz. Everyone knows him as the actor playing Dr House or the bungling puppy thief in 101 Dalmatians. . I happened to catch the show you were speaking of..... a road trip around the county ending up on N.O. and playing music all along the way..... loved it.

I too tend to comment mostly on the exceptional tunes I hear in this place as well as the others I hang out in. And yes, this is a fairly slow forum site. It takes a while most times for a handful of listens who will comment.

Cool piece. We came close to working that up last year when on a quest for PD blues numbers. Nice mix and use of RT's.

Don, This has a really nice loose feel to it. I enjoyed it. The only reason to go back to the drawing board is to come up with another. Very well put together. Thanks for posting. Tom

Hi Don !:))


As Floyd points out, we are
a bit slow to react and even slower
to respond, but all good comes over time (chuckle) !:))
I like jazz, especially jazz with enjoyable melodies
as is your tune also ! :)) I used to listen
a lot to my elder brother´s Glenn Miller records.
I believe he had one of the biggest collections
in Finland at the time !:))

Cheers
Dani

Thx all. Overall It could probably stand to have the tempo increased a few ticks... Still drags a bit.

Sidebar: has anyone noticed any performance limitations when using the new node tool for volume adjustment? There are a few spots that could use some more amplitude but the track samples are getting a bit large in this piece I'm fearful that messing with transient nodes could lintroduce playback lag. Thoughts? I suppose I should just experiment a bit.

I think this is a really well done piece. A great showcase for Real Tracks.

BTW, I was a lurker here for a long time, but I've decided to come out.

Don,

As has been stated before, a fine use of Realtracks, and a good mix. Enjoyed it!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
