Hello ladies and germs - uh hmmm - gentlemen! Dani and I now take you back to the bygone days of big band jazzy swing with our rendition of this little ditty from the public domain - originally written in 1921 (m.)Richard A. Whiting,(l.) Raymond B. Egan and Gus Kahn.

Dani, did the BIAB file using the style Bigband1. I added a jazz acoustic bass RT, put trumpet, fr horn and trombone as separate ensembles through Miroslav, the piano through HiQ midi in Sampletank using RB and added the female vox. I don't use midi much so it was fun using Miroslav and Sampetank. Dani added his cool voice and harmonies for the male part recorded in Mixcraft. I usually use Reaper but since there was no extensive editing the tracks were mixed in MIxbus. We had fun. Hope you get a kick out of it too.

Josie and Dani,

You do, indeed! (have fun, that is)...

Very nicely put together - sounds like a lot of work went into this one! Good instrumentation and a solid mix. Solid vocals and harmonies throughout.

Well done. Great collab.

Very cool, smooth and pleasant arrangement. My first exposure to music was the big band 78's my family played....so I'm much digging this. And Janice wants me to mention how often she listens to all the 30's/40's big bands. And she does!

The time y'all spent on this is obvious and, most importantly, it worked....and worked very well!!

The idea, the vocals, the arrangement and the mix are all spot on for the style. Kudos!!

Very enjoyable recreation of the sound and style from that era. I'm sure it was in some matinee movie that we kids tried to imitate. Fun. Thanks.

Josie and Dani, Ain't these collabs fun? Great job on the mix and vocals are spot on. Josie your voice translates perfectly to the sentiment of the song. Nice job. I've always liked the melody. I wonder if the younger generations even know what 78's are? Tom

Josie and Dani,

While this is a great effort from both of you I am blown away by you Josie and your grasp on the swing/jazz vocal.

I guess I never heard you sing anything but pop, country and some folk and don't get me wrong you do these well. But you nailed this swing tune lady, I hope this means you might be doing more songs from this genre?

Congrats to both of you guys on a job well done.

Later,

That's a nice big band arrangement, definitely has that feeling.
We also like Dani´s vocal harmonies. Were these all separate singing lines, or did he use a vocal harmonizer ? (like the one in BIAB).

Keep up the good work!

Danny C.,

I appreciate that very much. I enjoy singing in different styles. As for more of the genre who knows. Got new original songs in the works I'm working on now but never say never.

It amazes me that because of this forum I can have fun doing a duet with someone across the globe as talented as Dani. Gotta love it.

Thank you,

Josie

R & Am,

I know Dani already thanked you but I just wanted to add -

For me, as a harmony junkie, it was a real treat having Dani's wonderful voice singing those complex harmony chords and making it sound so effortlessly.

(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
