Hey guys,

I picked up a Yamaha WX5E midi wind controller about a month ago and decided to compose a tune using it.
It's sort of a smooth jazz tune.
I recorded both melodyA and melodyB into BIAb using the WX5E.
Tried recording the solos as well, but not good enough on the instrument yet so generated RT solos instead.
The tune is called Clouds In My Coffee.
It's in the key of E Minor.
The form is.
Intro, AABA, Solos, B, then B transposed up a half step then an 8 bar ending.
I hope you like it.

Tim, I really like this. I adore Sade so the style gave me tingles straight away!
Love the vocal oohs, the cool key change, and, well everything else really! Beautifuly arranged and recorded. Top notch. Just playing it for the fourth time...

Tim,


Thanks for that one! You had me sitting on the beach at Laguna, sipping a cold martini and watching the waves roll in. Cool jazz.

I sit and program all day long…( the Paying Job..lol) and while I do that I listen to this type of music on smoothjazz.com Very, Very Nice. You need to submit some of your work (this one ).. to smoothjazz.com and get streaming air play. It’s just a matter of submitting a marketing kit…

http://smoothjazz.com/marketing/

So when is the CD Version coming out that I can buy….with your greatest hits?

Nice Song...

Paul,

Thank you much for your comments. I'm a computer programmer myself. I'm pretty much retired, but still do part time programming for the company my wife works for.

Thanks, I'll check out SmoothJazz.com.
