Something Fascinating

©2015 Robert Randall Burke



You know
I know
There's something fascinating
Going on tonight
I know
You know
I've been procrastinating
Though I long to hold you tight.


Music and the moonlight
Puts my head in a twirl
Dancing with you in my arms
Won't you be my girl?


You know
I know
We've spent a lifetime waiting
For this night to come.


Music and the moonlight
Puts my head in a twirl
Dancing with you in my arms
Won't you be my girl?

You know
I know
There's something fascinating
Going on tonight
Going on tonight.

Hi Bob.

Wonderfully authentic period piece.

I've always been a fan of Fred and Ginger and this could have come straight out of one of their films.

Made my day.

Cheers, ROG.

Great photo! The dixieland ensemble sounds great. My
experiments with those RT's haven't begun to work nearly
as well as yours.

Grab a megaphone and you will have absolutely nailed the
vibe. laugh

A most fun over the cup o' joe listen!

As Jackson Browne said "Make room for my 45s, along beside your 78s, nothing survives but the way we live our lives". This feels like it was played on a 78. Wonderful tribute to the era!! You really captured it all (horns, vocals, LP sound FX). Very, very nice!! You've been on a roll!! Merry Xmas! Greg

Bob,

I love that 78 rpm crackle in the background... very creative! This is an excellent piece. This incredibly authentic sounding. BIAB sure is versatile in the hands of a master such as yourself!

Best thoughts to you and Penny for a wonderful Christmas.
Noel

ROG,
Thanks for the listen and the kind words. Wishing you a Happy Christmas!


J&B,
Thanks. We actually have a megaphone that I wanted to use, but we couldn't find it!


Sonny,
Thanks for the listen and the period appropriate comments!


Greg,
Thanks very much. I guess I've been watching too much Downton Abbey!


Noel,
Thanks for listening and the kind remarks. Hope you have a Merry Christmas Down Under!


Tom,
Thanks. Having so many styles to play with makes it a lot of fun.


Fj,
Brevity is the soul of wit. grin


Scott,

Thanks. My father played in a Dixieland band as a youngster, so I grew up hearing a lot of it.


Peter,
Thanks for listening.


Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy BIAB New Year!


Regards,

Bob

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.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
