Yesterday's Tomorrow

This gig started on Friday night but now it is early Saturday morning, thus the title of this song. It is last call so grab your lady and dance for the last time tonight.

After a long and happy but somewhat chaotic vacation/holiday and a number of days of trying to catch up with all of my yard work I was able to get some music finished thanks to a couple days of rain!

Anyway I hope you enjoy this little quick and dirty song. Band in a Box is playing the drums and piano from the Slow CountryPop w. piano [85MST] style while I am playing the alto sax via my wind controller and the bass guitar.

All comments are welcomed.

Hi MarioD. I believe this is your first post I've had to pleasure to enjoy and I truly did enjoy it. It's a good mix and superb arrangement.

Regards,

Charlie

Really pretty music! WOuld have never guessed that the sax wasn't live. I would probably make the piano a bit dryer. Very cool stuff! Take care. Greg

Nice tune. Very relaxing. The sax via windcontroller is very cool.

This sounds good. Nice mellow tune. Kinda sad sounding in some ways.


I have an old Yamaha DS27S that came with a breath controller for similar usage. Harmonica and the wind instruments etc.... I tried to use it and found it to be very much a PITA so it's in a drawer with all sorts of stuff that I rarely use.

Hi Mario,

really pretty song. Very relaxing. I would never have guessed that the sax wasn't real.
I like your avatar.

I think a wind-controller sax to midi is pretty much "real" -- ha, ha. Great job playing -- and I think you have to know how to play to get that realism. Smooth composition and an overall good sound.

Mario,

As you know I am a sucker for a pretty melody and this is a pretty melody. Plus great job on the wind controller and bass.

Now you can have the rest of the night off.

Later my friend,

Hi Mario ...

I believe this is the first track of yours we've listened to. Very nice, indeed! pretty and, in a curious way, a bit haunting. To us, it sounds like the music of someone walking away from a love gone bad but wishing it hadn't.

We're pretty basic with out music and have no idea what a wind controller is. Regardless, it soiunded terrific! Thanks for a real nice listen! Best to you ...

Al & Di

Hey, Mario, very nice and smooth tune. Only observation is IMHO, that I would bring the piano a tad back.

Regards

First I would like to thanx all who listened and commented. I really appreciated those comments.

For those who indicated that the piano was a tad too loud well you know how those rock keyboardists are! I’m always yelling turn it down! I will go back and listen more carefully to the piano track.

Herb you might want to reinvestigate that breath controller. With practice it should add realism to wind instruments.

Kevin, I used to be a trumpet and French horn player prior to asthma making me stop. I have my EWI-USB set up with trumpet like fingering. I am still trying to learn how a real sax player plays.

Danny, it did take the night off and I listened to a fantastic performance on
StreetJelly. Great job on that! Josie was super also! What a day for listening!

Al & Di, This, http://www.akaipro.com/product/ewiusb
is the wind controller that I use. Although it looks like a clarinet I have it set up with trumpet like fingering. It has no sound at all but it uses any sound that I have in my computer. It is lots of fun and does at a touch of realism to wind instruments. I am still a beginner on it.

Tom, the sound comes from SampleModeling’s saxes, http://www.samplemodeling.com/en/products_saxophones.php
They produce the best wind instrument sounds available IMHO.

Mario,

We came back for a second listen. Somethings are so pretty you just can't get enough. We think that applies to this splendid production. Again, kudos!
