Seriously, Imogen Heap is the singer.

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11903190

All the backing tracks are BB/RB except the guitar is live.... me on my telecaster.

Style is jazz.

The story...or how I got Miss Heap to sing this. Actually, Imogen was recording some stuff a few years back for a special project, and after recording the vocals to this, it was cut from the project. Imogen made the stems for the vocals available and I was fortunate enough to grab them. I recorded this a few years back and this version is a redo of the project.

One of the most beautiful songs
I have heard here.
Great vocals and harmonies together
with a perfect background.
This was not the last time I listened.

Herb,

You are NOT a hacker. First class professional works.

The redo using BIAB tools are fabulous.

Thanks to you and Also Imogen for sharing.

Very very classy, in every aspect. Sounds like full studio quality to me... this forum seems to have suddenly gone "pro."

And thanks for introducing me to Imogen... didn't know her. A little bit of the old Joni, which is enough for a Pandora station.

Sorry for my ignorance, but what exactly are "stems?" I imagine they are simply the raw vocal tracks, right? And did you write the song? Top notch.

Very grooving, if thats an OK word for a Brit to use.
Great singing voice and I enjoyed the sound of the Tele and the Sax fits so well that he could have been in the Studio with you. Maybe he was - our BIAB Studio!! lol
A totally Pro piece of work.

cheers
ian

Herb,

Agree with all that's been said... Great production and mix. Incredible vocal - gorgeous (would love to see the lyric posted to "get a better sense of it").

Also, with Brad on "what are stems"?

Hey thanks everybody for listening.

yeah, Stems are basically tracks. just another way of saying tracks.

Imogen Heap is a big star (I think) across the pond.... she sounds a bit British when she speaks. She wrote the words and the melody for the vocals and I put the music together and took her raw vocals and massaged them into this arrangement.

It was a fun project to work on.

Again... thanks for the listen.

Herbie, you dog you! As usual everything you do is top notch. I really love the guitar tones. Mix is superb. Imogen's vocal very very sweet.

Wow, fabulous job Heb. Love it!
I have most of Imogen's records - yes, she is a pretty big star indeed, and no wonder!
Here she is with Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scott's:-

Hi Guitarhacker,

How good does this sound!?!? I'm speechless. The song is incredibly impressive in every way.

Like Floyd, I'd have liked to see the lyrics so that I could get a better sense of the word journey. That being said, though, my ears heard this as "easy listening music" at its absolute best.

Regards,
Noel

Hey... thanks all for listening....

Actually, I would have to set down and write out the lyrics. That was Imogen's part of the song. I puzzled over a few places in the lyrics, but I think I have them all figured out now.

I love Love LOVE the way she sings.... although I do admit until I worked on this tune, I had barely heard of her but my girls and their friends all knew her name immediately.

I first saw her on the Jeff Beck "Live at Ronny Scotts" DVD and she simply knocked us out. Hard to go astray with that level of talent on hand. Thanks for sharing.

Herb, I agree with everything that has been said, i.e. OUTSTANDING!

I will add that this is “air play ready”!

Two thumbs up!

I knew Imogen Heap before a she was signed we used to work with Pam Robbins (RIP) at the original songwriters live venue at the Orange, later called West One Four in west Kensington London.

She is an accomplished live performer. I worked with quite a few of the artists who got their break through the club. Some of whom went on to become very successful and produce many hit records.

Good to hear she's still out there and doing it.

Great Tune and a great artist

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
