Jazz-Just fall in love with the music

Hi all,

Been workin with Magix & BIAB

Biab - ZZBOSSA.STY Bossa Nova style _ snippets of piano
Magix- Jazz- Late in the bar

Creative Commons Licence

I was trying to get some counter-point harmony going...
Ended up making a simple list of chords that resolve the piano chords en-harmonically to this song. Hope you like it

Hey, there, "LPman"!

Where there's jazz, you will always find me, toes tappin' n' fingers snappin'! cool

"Just Fall In Love With The Music" is quick, hot, and cool, and all at the same time. It's like a montage, but of sounds instead of images. It's got tension and it feels as though a lot of musical energy is about to be unleashed. The instruments sound incredibly realistic.

Okay, "LPman", you got my attention. So, uhhh, like, what's next?

LOREN

Very impressive.

You've managed to capture multiple riffs and combined them very well to produce a very streamlined arrangement.

A good listen, for sure.

Hi Loren

thanks you for your re-post to me. I see you did a collaboration

Coffee Talk
Lyrics by LOREN(a.k.a. "bluage")
Music by Shigeki Adachi

I like your how you sing your own lyrics, the words are so easy to follow. I racked my brains trying to figure if vocals would fit to this song.

It is like a montage... I think that's why I gave up! The idea of adding vocals seemed plausible at first...

Thanks for posting and describing my song so eloquently. To answer your question; what's next??? I don't know... the Last song I made on soundcloud was a heavy metal song "Just Run" It was the first song my brother stated; "that it was believable". The lyrics are hard to understand cause the vocalist sounds like a demon monster!

I go where the music takes me... while chord mapping song projects.

Thank you VideoTrack.
I worked on this track for 2 weeks and I am over saturated listening to it.... I can't tell (myself) if it's good yet... I am only comfortable hearing this song in a loop. If I hear it as a single.... I feel lost in it.

thanks so much for your post!

HI,

Lots of variety in this. Many different sounds but all coordinated expertly. The various elements keep it fresh throughout. I particularly enjoyed the guitar riffs and the overall bass line. Very nice ... sounds live and natural.

Great work on this! It is obvious you put a lot of thought and time into this - and it pays off smile I loved the articulate weaving of all the instruments. I loved the arrangement on it, and the groove as well and how everything just falls into place.

Fantastic work, you should be proud of this! Thanks for sharing smile

"LPman"...

You're welcome, and thanks for listening to my collaboration with Shigeki Adachi in his song, "Coffee Time" smile

Concerning the possibility of lyrics for "Just Fall In Love With The Music", I recommend that you give a listen to a few jazz vocalists of yesteryear who specialized in composing lyrics for instrumental jazz compositions, and usually with fast tempos: the Lambert, Hendricks & Ross trio, vocalist King Pleasure, and Eddie Jefferson.

Those artists popularized the use of what is called "vocalese", which according to Wikipedia "...is a style or musical genre of jazz singing wherein words are sung to melodies that were originally part of an all-instrumental composition or improvisation."

You may enjoy listening to Lambert, Hendricks & Ross applying vocalese techniques to the Duke Ellington instrumental jazz composition, "Cottontail". Also, check out King Pleasure's rendition of "Moody's Mood For Love". Eddie Jefferson's performance of "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", composed by Joe Zawinul and played by tenor saxophonist Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, is a fine and soulful example of vocalese performed at a slower tempo.

This is different from what is known as "scat" singing, which is vocal improvisation of sounds based on the words, or lyrics, of actual songs.

A fine example of "scat" singing can heard in Sarah Vaughn's version of "Lullaby of Birdland", composed by the late British pianist, George Shearing, with lyrics by George David Weiss.

Thank you so much for your post Al-David. I appreciate that you can hear all various elements changes; too keep the ears focus, fresh throughout the song.

I was worried that there are too many changes and the song would be only recognized as a "hack gimmick." This song (to me) was an experiment to find if BIAB can help me with a counter-point harmony chord progressions. I will definitely take shot this again...

Thanks so much LOREN for your post and references which I found below:


Lambert Hendricks & Ross - Cotton Tail

King Pleasure :Moody's Mood For Love

"Mercy, Mercy, Mercy", composed by Joe Zawinul

Sarah Vaughn's version of "Lullaby of Birdland"

I enjoyed listening to them, and will try to learn from these arrangements.
Thanks so much for your thoughtful post!

Everything that I wanted to say already has been said. All I can add is that this should be a showcase for PGMusic's RealTracks.

Great jazz tune.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)
