I/we've been away for a few weeks. In addition to writing songs, I also writes novels. I had a deadline to meet for publishing my last novel (it's on Amazon now!!!) so I had to put everything else aside for a month or so. But, we're back to writing!

This is a Big Band Jazz Ballad in the flavor of Steve Tyrell, one of my very favorite male Jazz singers. It also reminds us of something Vic Damone might have done ... anyone remember him??? I think I might have the vocal a bit too loud ... let me know what you think about that part of the production ... and anything else that crosses your mind.

We wrote this for a college drama class to be used in a short movie they are producing.

I would post the RT info but when I click onto the song, I get the following message: "File not currently accessable". When I figure out what the problem is, I'll post the info.

Forever And All Time
(c) 2014 Alan D. David, BMI / Diana Bowers, BMI

(V1)
As the Earth spins 'round each day and autumn leaves will fall
And as the birds sing their song, and the pines are green and tall
While mountains reach for the sky, and water seeks the shore
I'll love you dear through all of that, through that and so much more

CHORUS
Eternity's forever, and that's what I have in mind
That's how long I'll love you dear, forever and all time

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

(V2)
As long as my two nickels, are equal to a dime
And verses to a pretty song, somehow will always rhyme
As rivers flow to the sea, and two plus two is four
I'll love you dear through all of that, through that and so much more

CHORUS
Eternity's forever, and that's what I have in mind
That's how long I'll love you dear, forever and all time

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK - ONE LINE

TAG
That's how long I'll love you dear, forever and all time

OUT

Great atmosphere. Love the trumpet. Super smooth vocals didn't seem loud to me. Cool. Cheers.

Beautifully mastered work, the horn work sounds so nice; and the voice, puts me in mind of the old movie classic soundtracks thanks for sharing!

Alan,

LOL... I played this before reading your comments and was thinking...
"This sounds like a perfect Vic Damone song!" - my mom was a big fan, so I heard him as a kid...

And, man! you sure captured it! - both the sound (instrumentation) and the writing - a VERY good write for this style song. If there is anyone doing these now, you should be able to get a cut with this!
(there were a couple of piano chords that got loud)

Very enjoyable! Surprised that you did not have Di singing harmony on this!

Really pretty and natural! Just feels good! It seems the first and third lines in verses are the same melody line. Maybe a bit of a twist on the third line would be cool. Just a thought. Nice stuff! Take care. Greg

I am so glad you discovered BIAB, the total sound of your demos has really improved. Your songs were always good and you got a ton out of what you had, but now you can concentrate more on the tune and composition since now you have great instruments at your disposal. Vox was a tad loud I thought and you had quite a few 'plosives in there. It will need a retake to fix up, I think.

Glad you're back Al! Hope your book does super well!

Beautiful arrangement and the lyric and melody fit the style perfectly like the song came right out of that era.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
