Right, it's high time I got something of my own stuff on here properly grin

For my first, I'm choosing a fairly simple 'boogie-woogie' type of tune I made in honour of my uncle, some 1-2 decades ago, who loved to play this type of music on his piano (and gave me my very first keyboard, so I guess owe my whole music meddling to him).
The reason I dug it up now and decided to rework it with my BBox is because he passed away this christmas. So in a way, it's another tribute of a sort. People may find this kind of snappy boogie a bit of an odd thing, considering his recent passing, but I'm telling you he would've absolutely loved it cool

Anyway, proudly presenting: The swinging must go on!

Oh, and before you ask - it is supposed to have lyrics (preferably performed by a quartet) but I'm rubbish in that department... any takers interested in collaboration for fun? smile

Nice tune for those past times. My condolences for your uncle. Hope you find a collaborator for lyrics and singing. Dani48 has barbershop quartet experience and the vocal and writing chops to shine on a song like this. This genre is way out of my league. Nice song.

Interesting tip there, thank you. And thank you likewise for such swift feedback, it reminded me I forgot to include the "required specs", as it were:

I used the swinging New Orleans style as a base style, swapped its guitar with the Wes Jazz guitar and the drums with Jazz Shuffle - both of which served to give the tune an "older" feel, I hope. Then there's some acoustic guitar added (EZ) and the 40s piano kicks in during the choruses only. The brass decorations are mine, and the harmonisation of the melody as well.

OK, I'll take you up on that challenge:

The Swinging Must Go On
the clock says that our time is up
the swinging must go on
the band is slowly packing up
the swinging must go on
with me in my tuxedo
and you in your chiffon

up and down and round and round
the swinging must go on
your best friend says to hurry up
the swinging must go on
caught in syncopation
the horns are blowing strong

bennie goodman, artie shaw
they're gone, they're gone, long gone
father time don't wait around for you
string of pearls and stardust
and we just danced along
just a little slower
but the swinging must go on

though it only seems a moment
those years moved on and on
and grew into a lifetime i spent with you
lovely you
yes, i'd like stay and be right here
but i know it won't be long
my ride is here and honking at the gate
so late!

bright and clear and wonderful
horns sing out their happy song
blue skies with bright and sunny days
though I won't be there to dance with you
please say you'll carry on
just remember me with fondness
for the swinging must go on

bennie goodman, artie shaw
they're gone, they're gone, long gone
father time don't wait around for you
string of pearls and stardust
we just danced along
just a little slower
but the swinging must go on
please promise to remember
the swinging must go on
we'll miss each other dear
but the swinging must go on


What do you think?

Hello Icelander. Nice tune and a lovely tribute. David I am blown away! I find it very hard to write lyrics to a tune composed by someone else. Well done to you both!

Well, that didn't take long, eh! laugh
Very nice story there too, we may be on to something fruitful here wink

On a more technical note though, are you quite sure the words/syllables match the notes completely? Or maybe I'm just not 'hearing' he phrases right smirk
Would you mind if I 'meddled' with it a bit and see if I can't make it all match & come together? For as I said, I really think we may be on to something here cool

They match pretty closely. If you could get me a copy of the song with the melody, I could add the lyrics. Otherwise, I could try singing it and send you that.

I've got no problem with you adapting the lyrics, but let's see if I can show you what I intended first... Then you can start making changes! smile

Thanks!

Hi, Icelander !:))

I take it you are
from Reykjavik or
Akureyri ? (In that
case you are a Scandinavian
brother of mine )!!!

I´ve been to your lovely country
and must say it is really like
a saga !:)) Like Norway,
Iceland is more or less a
National Park allthrough ?

About your tune, I like this
kind of music, and I can well
understand that your uncle liked
it too ! My condolences !!

David, you must be a wizzard.....

Take care

Cheers
Dani

Thanks for the positive feedback!

Icelander, I've sent a PM so you can hear what I was thinking of when I wrote it.

Well, you've just described the essence of the "Boogie woogie" style right there, haven't you cool
It was really a sort of transition thing from Miller's jazz to the "Rock-a-billy", with some elements of both (check the Anders sisters "Bugle boy" sample ). The jazzy element in these 'full band' boogies comes primarily in the voicing of the vocals, while keeping the core chords of the band relatively simple.
Boogie woogie 'purists' would however say that a proper BW should be entirely performed on a piano (like here ).
In many ways songs in this style are basically just a fast 12-bar blues, only with major 6th chords rather than 7th. I confess I cheated a bit on that last part, by adding a dim chord, but oh well. For a first (and my only) swing song to date, I'd say it's close enuff! wink

That'd be Reykjavik, yes...and kudos for spelling it correctly wink
However, I think you're the first finnish person to refer to either of our countries as 'Scandinavian'. Most people only include the other three nordic countries in that definition (we get exluded for geography, you for the language).
Anyway, thanks for the compliments... although it now rather looks like David has stolen most of my thunder here already, grmbl! grin

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's

See the full list here!
