Hello, everybody

I have never posted Bossa Nova Tune once in this forum, so I would like to post such a tune this time.

Title: Precious
Vocal: Natsuki Yoshikawa, our local female jazz vocalist

Link:
https://soundcloud.com/animarorecords/precious

Style is !BYRDQRT.STY (MIDI)
Acoustic Bass (33) assigned to Acoustic Bass,
Nylon Guitar (25) assigned to Nylon Guitar,
Style is BOSANUVO.STY (MIDI)
Slow String (50) assigned to Strings,
MIDI Drums assigned to Jazz Brushes Kit & GM Percussion,
All instruments played with EastWest Goliath.

Additional Piano played by Miya Nakajima, our local female jazz pianist.

Summary of lyrics

Half-drunk tea
Half-read magazine
Knocking on the glass window
The sound of rain becomes strong

Just a little more
Please stay here
I cannot say obediently even such words

My heart has blamed you for a long time
But I will forget the sorrow if I could see you

People go around the streets with umbrellas
Under the rain clouds spread all over the sky
Which are sometimes broken

If only one real thing can be found
I will not mind losing everything

Time flows to the night as it is
Also tomorrow it must be a common day
But if I could endure it
This love surely will be forever

Shigeki Adachi,

A beautiful song.

Nice job with the MIDI tracks. Well mixed.

The vocal by Natsuki Yoshikawa is delightful. The additional piano from Miya Nakajima is very nice.


You do Bossa Nova as well as everything else you do.

Hello, floyd, Tom, Robert and Kenny

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your very kind words and your continuous supports.
I am very happy you all like Natsuki's vocal and Miya's piano.
Tom Jobim is one of favorite composer, so I tried to make this tune by modeling his works.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

I think Jobim would be very pleased with this - oozes class. A superb piece of work.
Great playing and singing over a brilliant arrangement.

Shigeki

What a gorgeous Bossa Nova - one of our very favorite genres of music. Di and I wrote a couple dozen of them a few years back. We are going to pick the better ones and redo them in BIAB.

This is just so smooth and easy on the ears. The vocal and additional piano were wonderful and the arrangement was superb. Really nice!

Alan & Di

Shigeki, I was captivated from the very first note.

There is just so much to enjoy with this song.

Superb vocal delivery, excellent mix, perfect balance of instruments. Who said MIDI couldn't deliver!

And what about that delivery on piano Miya Nakajima? More than sensational. She holds a conversation with the vocals throughout the song. Masterful presentation.

Going to be listening to this a lot more.

More please!

Wow!!

We enjoy all your compositions and this one is absolutely one of our favorites. The Bossa feel works exceptionally well and Natsuki's performance is stunning.

Smooth tight production...everything about it is world class.

Miya is one of the top jazz pianists in our local area.
Of course there are many other good pianists, but personally I like her piano the most.

Shigeki Adachi,

I listened to this quite a while back and was blown away. It seems that I forgot to leave a comment. My apologies. There's no two ways about it, this is inspired music making at its very best. You handled the bossanova style with pizzazz... comfortable and competent all the way. Natsuki Yoshikawa's singing is superb! You certainly have a fine collection of musicians in your circle of musical friends!

I really, REALLY enjoyed this.

All the best,
Noel
