As promised, here's the other jazz tune (from 3 years ago I believe) that I did in BIAB prior to computer crash, etc. All I have is this take. I'm digging through files to see if I can find the individual tracks or old BIAB file on a backup hard-drive somewhere.

Kiss Me, Chicago

Thanks for listening!

Hi Michael,

Ah, loved it!!!! Makes me want to light one up ... and I don't even smoke!!!

That trombone lead was terrific. And then when the bass goes into a 4/4 walk, that was sweet. We also loved the two-bar modulation near the end.

This would definitely get the Lounge Lizards trolling the crowd. The soft strength of your voice wasa very pleasant treat. I could hear Steve Tyrell doing a splendid sing on this, but your voice is a real nice fit. Thanks for posting this gem!

Alan & Di

(PS: we lost over a dozen tracks when a folder we had them in corrupted during a computer crash. We can empathize with your frustration ion that matter! All we have is the final, stereo mix.)

Another nice tune!! I can tell you've listened to a lot of standards by your style of writing-romantic and poetic. Very nice stuff! Take care. Greg

Thanks Greg!! Definitely enjoy the old standards, and much of the music they 'sprouted' from.

Thanks again, and you take care as well!!

Alan and Di-

Glad you liked it. Thanks so much for taking such a careful listen and for the kind words. Appreciate them! Funny, as far as vocals go, I'm not overly happy with this tune, but just goes to show how we are our own worst critics. ;-)

Here's to the hope that we come across our original tracks!!

All the best,

Michael

Michael,

"That trombone lead was terrific. And then when the bass goes into a 4/4 walk, that was sweet. "

+1 to that

"really nice. Lyrics, vocals and arrangement.
Enjoyable listen."

...and that...

Looking forward to what's next...

This would have been a great tune for Sinatra, outstanding writing and the trombone is superb in this thanks for sharing! You definitely need to pitch this to some music folks. It would be great for a movie as well; thanks for sharing!

Nicely written. I especially liked how you bounced new ways to describe Chicago off of current/past descriptions of Chicago. And the "again" on the end.

This was fantastic! Love the jazz styling you have here.

Super trombone solo, vocals, lyrics, chord progression, and mix!

I can see Harry Connick Jr. singing this.

Thanks MarioD! Appreciate the kind words. It's always nice when someone can 'hear' someone else singing the tune as well. That means the vibe is good and Connickesque ;-)

Enjoyable listen and everything mixed well. I like your vocals on this and the trombone solo. Pitching - Harry Connick Jr. - I'd have a CD off to AI today....
