Hello, everybody

This is a jazz vocal song.
This was recorded about 15 years ago by Natsuki Yoshikawa, our local jazz singer when she was young.
I made this song with only MIDI Style because RealTracks were not available yet at the time.
Comments encouraged.
Have at it.

Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Title: 愛の旅人(Translation: Traveler following love)
Accompanied with the jazz band with horn section of big band style

Style is BBND_FST.STY
Style MIDI Instruments are:
Solo Trumpet: Soloist database Whnt.ST2
Bass(33) assigned to Wood Bass,
Piano(1) assigned to Grand Piano,
Sax(66) assigned to Sax section,
Brass(62) assigned to 4 trumpets & 4 trombones,
MIDI Drums: No Drum Patch Change (0)
Solo Trumpet, Sax section & Brass section played with Quantum Leap Brass
Other instruments played by Kontakt (maybe, sorry no data left)

Summary of lyrics

While many seasons pass me by
I have been looking for your trace
And now I am counting stars scattered in the night sky

Why had I encountered with you
Though there were millions of people in the world
And, why my heart is still tied with you

In spring we kissed cherry blossoms fluttering lightly
In summer we gave cold drops to moisturize our burned skins

How bright our lives were shining
What a coincidence our encounter was
What should I call it if it was not love

In autumn I will dance waltz alone with my tears
In winter I will need some one’s hot breaths to my frozen cheeks

Who am I wandering over seasons to go by
I am an eternal traveler in pursuit of impossible love

Very pleasant song Shigeki!! Even though it is a bit more uptempo than your new stuff, I still hear your melodic and structural style in it. Vocal is great. Enjoyed it much!! Take care. Greg

Shigeki,

Although indeed different from your usual work, a very pleasant listen and a very nice vocal.

Shigeki,


I enjoyed this- the backing sounds great for midi, especially the trumpet and the vocals are expressive.
Given the musical knowledge you`ve already shared here its no surprise that you are comfortable with a more uptempo jazz song...still, its good to hear something from your past work.

Robert

Wow, Shigeki! I agree with Robert, the backing sounds really phenomenal for MIDI. The trumpet is especially wonderful, I love its little excursions and phrases smile Awesome vocal performance, too. Great job, as always!

SO different from your other works but this is still beautiful.

You have some good singers in your music circle.

Shigeki, this is really just so well presented.

A great swing feel throughout, and punctuated with the excellent vocals provide an absolute highlight to the song.

Great work.

Greg stated it very well. It has your signature sound but is more uptempo. And another of your great melodies is present. Add to that the fine vocal and you have a great production.

We enjoyed it!

Wow, for a midi-only track, it's awesome! Really shows the power of BIAB, even way back then! And the vocals are jazzily perfect! Enjoyed this immensely.

Hello, Janice & Bud, Michael, David and Torrey

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
And many thanks for all the positive feedback!
I am so glad to hear you like my MIDI work and her vocal.

Janice & Bud,
Maybe it has been almost the same the way I write songs for a long time since I was young.

David,
Yes, it is a picture of the lady singing it. It is Natsuki Yoshikawa when she was young.
The picture was taken at the municipal recording studio of our city about 15 years ago.

Thank you again to all.

Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Shigeki,

An excellent uptempo song. As others have said the MIDI backing does sound great.
Love the song structure and very smooth vocals from Natsuki Yoshikawa.

Good job,
Jez

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
