Here is a song I wrote commemorating my son. Hope you enjoy it.
Jeremy.mp3 from The Soundsmith site.
The piano is me, everything else is BiaB. I especially like the transition at the end of the solo chorus when the rhythm just backs off exactly as a real band would do. The RealDrums are the primary reason I own BiaB, this is a perfect example of why.

Arrangement: Intro, head in, 1 chorus solo, head out.
Style is _CBOSBOL.STY (Bossa & Bolero Mix Quartet )

RealTracks in style: 1904:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Bolero Ev 090
RealTracks in style: 1903:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm Bolero Ev 090

What a sensational arrangement. This is a really classy piece.

You captured a wonderful melody and delivered it as a masterpiece.

Very, very enjoyable.

Which Piano did you use? It resonates beautifully.

David, what a fantastic piece of music!! I could listen to this all day! It puts one in a very serene and contemplative state of mind. I know a Jazz tune is working for me when my head is nodding back and forth and it certainly was here. Great work all the way around. Thanks, Torrey

proof again that virtuoso playing is not about how many notes you hit but hitting the right ones at the right time.
I can only echo the comments above and found the piece captivating.

It's beautifully played and arranged.

Well done!

Hello, David

What a fantastic tune!
As if I were listening to Jazz Bossa CD album played by Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans or some one with Ron Carter and arranged Claus Ogerman.
Piano tone is so pleasant and beautiful.
I was very impressed the use of the short and nice motif and some tension notes.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Thanks again, guys. BiaB makes all the difference as a solo artist. I can play bass parts, but a believable drummer has never been my forte (or my piano...)

Waiting anxiously for the 2017 tracks. (Don't really care about progam update, it does way more that I will ever use - but more Real tracks please... whistle

Couldn't have put it better myself -- your piano playing is extremely tasteful, David! I can only imagine what you're going to get up to with new RealTracks.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
