Hello, everybody

This is my new song with jazz fusion feeling in which a forbidden love is sung.
I recorded this song with a live band a few years ago.
This time I created a remake version of it with RealTracks.
Now I introduce it to you.
Any comments encouraged.
Have at it.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Summary of lyrics

There is nothing but love
The bed is in a disorder
We are drifting in time

Sweet sighs
Heavy embraces
We are burning our lives and drifting

A taste of honey, a smell of sin
When the devil whispers to us
We are corrupted down to the bottom of an abyss
Together with deep kisses

You seduced me
I responded to it
With no hesitation of a moment

This love is forbidden
Therefore we are burning with desire much more
Every time we meet
We get drowned on the edge of pleasure

You are a thief
I am a sinner
There is nothing but love
There will be no future but now

Sultry - atmospheric - superb. Loved the strings and the vocal.
A classic composition.

Feeling some Billie Holiday here.

As always everything works together in a very supportive way.

Like Peter said, "sultry - atmospheric - superb"

The composition, production and performances are wonderful.

Very nice!

Shigeki Adachi,

This is exquisite. A "treat for the ears" in all regards.

Natsuki Yoshikawa's vocal is gorgeous.

The arrangement and production are "pro all the way". Top-notch mix.

The trombone solo is so nicely expressive.

The strings are excellent.

A great listen. (the live band version is just as nicely done)

WOW! This is totally professional sounding! The vocalist is just perfect for your arrangement!

I think all of your songs are very well done and pro quality, but this one really catches my attention!

I like the way you used the strings. Many people let them play background chords, but you have used them to weave an interesting background motif. VERY classy!!

The live version is also very well rendered by the musicians, and quite true to your composition. I bow to you and to the other participants in the live version of your project! This is just wonderful, and I am very glad that you share your music us on the showcase forum.

This is incredible, animarorecords! Not a single complaint here - the vocal delivery, the arrangement, the mixing - all of it is superb! It almost reminds me of Portishead, or certain Massive Attack songs. You should be very proud of this tune! Can't wait to hear more from you smile

Hi Shigeki,

We have to agree with what everyone else has said. This is splendid! We listened to the live band version. Natsuki's voice is simply wonderful. She's the perfect singer for this song.

The song is a great production. Everything is mixed perfectly and the performances all stand out. This sounds as though it came straight from a major recording company's studio. What a wonderful listen! Thank you for that pleasure!

Alan & Di

Yes, I think this in incredible too. A very sophisticated, moody, and mysterious composition.

I love the vocals, and the delicate, well balanced production.

A masterful arrangement. Wonderful song.


By the way, I love this singer's voice!!!

Vocal: Natsuki Yoshikawa, our local female jazz vocalist

Hello, Peter, Janice & Bud, floyd, Scott, Pat, Deryk, Alan & Di, Torrey, Rob & Anne-Marie, Joe, David,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your very very kind words and your continuous supports.
I am very glad you all like this tune and Natsuki's vocal.

Our music circle is holding a recording session by asking the teachers of the Yamaha music school to play our scores twice a year.
The main purpose is learning how to write music score for the good performance.
The guidance of scoring is carried out by the professional arranger.
We are learning the arrangement technique at actual recording practices in the way above mentioned.
Although we do not get good results at the beginning, we will gradually be able to obtain good results as long as we continue.
Someday I would really like to introduce the situation of the session to you.

Thanks again to all.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

More high class music coming our way from your creative skills, Shigeki Adachi

This is really beautifully presented, extremely well balanced, and Natsuki Yoshikawa is just an absolute pleasure to listen to.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Many thanks.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

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
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela. Equalizar Tempoaprimoramentos na Seleção de Músicas, baixo/bateria ou apenas bateria nas introduções automáticas, 3.400 títulos adicionados, aprimoramentos no MusicXML, visualização de guitarra para "Canhotos" e "Estudantes", aprimoramentos de arrastar e soltar, exibição de várias janelas do Interpretador de Acordes de Áudio e muito mais!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

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!
