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 am so far out of my comfort zone on this one it’s impossible to measure.




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!!!

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.

Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
