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!

Shigeki

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

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
