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.
