I was a major Santana fan during their first run...a fan to the extent that I got really interested in what was happening rhythmically with his band. An older friend told me to look into as he called it Afro/Cuban jazz. It fascinated me and, while I never became learned those rhythms to this day grab my attention. Heck, maybe Ricky Ricardo set me up for it when I was a kid. smile

So thanks for stirring those memories with this production. It all works for me -- FWIW. Cool solo.

P.S. Duke Ellington has to be absolutely the classiest of the class acts. Janice and I are both mesmerized by him and the band. Really like something from another universe.

Ah, Janice and Bud -

So wonderful to hear those words from you about the Duke (and his alter ego Billy Strayhorn). Yes, from another universe in another time. I've been waiting around for Matt to answer the quiz question but so far nada. I suppose he must have departed for Christmas vacation.

I'm glad you liked my version of this great tune ... and Merry Christmas.

Well, I'm no Matt, but here's my guess: "Don't get around much anymore"?
Not saying I'm right (would be nice to get a confirmation either way) but hey, at least I'm playing the game! smile

Dean,

I agree, the Latin thing really does work for you! I've always liked the Latin beats, and have been a Santana fan as well. Really enjoyed this one!

I think you, although technically not a singer, have the soul for it. I love the old jazz standards. Nice job!! Enjoyable track as always! Take care. Greg

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
