One In A Million Woman

Bit of Jazz/Bossa here – song for a hot summer night sitting in the back yard.
A MIDI/RT Production all done with PG Software.
- a basic BIAB style from 1996 in the days before RTs. The original style name escapes me.
Nylon Guitar is a Yamaha XG sound, as is the DX Legend electric piano and the fretless bass.
RealDrums are Bossa Rock 2 Brushes, Hi-Hat
The Sax is RT475 Alto Bossa.

I am open to any production comments or suggestions you might have.

One In A Million Woman
Copr Words & Music - Ian Fraser

Sits in the warmth of a summer’s night
Oh so sultry
Like Cleopatra floating down the Nile
Oh so sightly
You know you can trust her when she’s on her own
She’s that kind of a lady
A one in a million woman
One in a million woman
You thought you’d never find.

The nape of her neck is damp and cool
Oh slightly salty
Her dress is light and it clings to her
Oh nicely naughty
And her eyes say she’ll love any time at all
She’s that kind of a lady
A one in a million woman
One in a million woman
You thought you’d never find.
You thought you’d never find.

Most of her body’s been tanned by the sun
Oh brown as a berry
I know there’s white where that swim suit was
And it’s driving me crazy
And later on she’ll go home with me
‘Cause you know she’s my lady
A one in a million woman
A one in a million woman
You thought you’d never find
You thought you’d never find.

Enjoy - Ian

Hey Ian,

This is a cool song. I really like it. I think every woman wants to feel she's one in a million, sexy and treasured by her man. Great hook.

I think you sound really good on it and the production was right on for me. Like that sort of Sergio Mendez feel.

Terrific song and one of my personal favs of yours so far.

Tommy - Right you are.
Without PG Music I would have needed a trust fund to hire the studio and the session men.
Originally it was just me and the guitar until 1995 when I got BIAB and a Roland piano controller.
Glad you liked the song.

Ian - old folkie

Hello Josie.
So nice to hear from you.
I must admit, I was wondering what reaction a woman might have to the song.
I'm honoured (Cdn) with your take on it.

Given the professional way you have with writing and production, your perspective on the tune
makes me feel good about the end mix. With my hearing loss, mixing can be an iffy
thing when it comes to instrument balance. On this song I credit MarioD's ears.
and his willingness to help with my "How's this?" e-mails.

The production levels on this forum keeps everyone trying harder - it's a great supportive group.

Cheers and thanks - Ian

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
