The ringer announcer yells "GET READY TO RUMBA"

I am so far out of my comfort zone on this one it’s impossible to measure. I have played around with this chord progression for sometime now but this is the first time I tried to put a lead line to it.

I’m playing my wind controller (sax), nylon string guitar (rhythm guitar), jazz box (lead guitar) and bass (guess which part). The rest is Band-in-a-box with a few modifications as follows:

Style – L_Rumba3
1-bass and guitar tracks deleted and replace by me-see above
2-piano-virbatim except for the piano leads. Those were from super midi track 20787-piano,Rhythm BoleroMelodic EV 090. I thought that this made a very nice lead piano part for this song.
3-drums – Realdrums=Rumba^3-Brushes,Ride. Yes Mario can and does use RealDrums when they fit the song perfectly as this did IMHO.
4-strings – verbatim. I copied the track and lowered one tracj by one octave. I then used two different string patches to get the sound I wanted.
5-leads – played by me – see above

This is a one day wonder but I hope you like it for what it is.

Mario -

Love the jazz box. I love music that takes me places.

I'm sitting in a sidewalk cafe on the Malecon, sipping a dark rum and enjoying a Montecristo No. 4, listening to the beautiful music of the mysterious gringo as the waves crash against the seawall.


Regards,

Bob

Mario:

Very appropriate use of PG styles and tracks, and nice guitar as well. Was "convincing," is my word... I almost could feel the ocean breeze... and taste the rum.

Nice tune Mario. I liked the piano lead and everything else. Only thing I would have added is the Bolero style conga drums.
Good work though.

Mario - it's beautiful. I'm always impressed by how many things you "add".

Not sure if I've ever thought this about a song, but as it played, I just kept thinking...

"Romantic".

Hey Mario!

I haven't had too much time recently and, as a consequence, I nearly missed this one. I'm glad I didn't

You said ...

Quote:

I would NEVER have picked that from listening. My left and right ear completely agreed with each other that this was wonderful music. Floyd used the word, "romantic". I agree! You sound so smooth on your wind controller these days that it's always a pleasure to listen to you perform with it.

All the best,
Noel

Was that "sax player" on the big horse??
Why all the airspace, and so I had a flashback as I was listening to him:

I recall sitting on a club bar stool, anticipating the next set when I'd hear Mr Stan Getz "do his thing"...then I glanced to my left, and there on the next one was "THE MAN", HIMSELF!! (taking a break from his last set, staring straight ahead..sort of tranced out on booze and who knows what else?)
Mistakely, I thought...what's this guy gonna do when he gets back on stage! ?! Well he got up soon after, and played the most sophisticated, sensual set I had ever heard him do...

Had my eyes squeezed shut whenever "your" saxplayer" made me doze off!!
..Guess I have still got
"Getz Syndrome".

Please get some cats ike Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan, and Chet Baker soloing on your beautiful Love Tune!!
Hey Brother...just been pulling your leg..kidding you, of course!!!

Hey Stan, ...over here!!!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
