Hi Carolyne,

I - unfortunately - don't know you, but what a wonderful experience it was to find this song... it's like a blast from the past... long before I became a member of this forum.

It's a stunning song and your vocal is incredible good sounding!

I love this kind of jazz/blues-music and your song is one of the best I have heard in this genre in many years.

Thank you!
Will

Ms. Swayze...

May I borrow a line from your song, "Speechless Blues", please? Assuming you've granted my request, I'll follow-up by saying that "I'm left speechless" by this...this...this elegantly swinging, sassy-as-a-stolen kiss, tastily sung piece of happy blues!!!

Sometimes, my first impulse when commenting on a song or composition that thrills my heart, soul, and ears, is to try to think of a known musician who's work compares favorably to the User's Forum member's production. But, you know what, Ms. Swayze? In this case I ain't gonna do that, because from where I'm standing, it would be an insult to you. Why compare you to someone else when you're as "good", if not better, than they are??? And your scatting was as effortless and stylish as a blue-hearted bird tweeting on a jazz kick.

If I must use a superlative, then it would be that "Speechless Blues" is probably the finest jazz vocal performance by a lady that I've heard on the forum. You should have sold tickets to us before you posted it!

Ms. Swayze, please promise me that you're going to post more songs on this forum, starting, like, right now. Not only do we (the forum members) need more women "in the mix" (in my opinion, of course), but we need you even more to show us how the fine art of jazz singing is done.

Okay, you don't have to promise, but, I hope like you-know-what that we hear from you much, much more often, okay?

I'm your's,

LOREN

Your vocal performance is flawless. I enjoyed all aspects of this song. I particularly like these lines: "This lack of elocution is a low down, dirty shame/I’m dumbfounded, so confounded, amazed, and abused." These are cleverly written lyrics.

Wow - really well done! Love the groove, and your vocals match the backing tracks perfectly. The whole tune has a fantastic velvety texture to it. It flows like water. The scatting was a nice addition - you really nailed your performance here.

Great work, and thanks for sharing smile


Cheers,

This song is a good example of why we all should listen more to the PGMusic Radio, where random songs will be played, which also mean random pleasant surprises. I would never have found this song otherwise.

And I think you all agree that this song really deserves renewed attention.

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.
