Sitting astride of a white carousel
I'm going around and around

My love is waving his hand
I’m riding alone on a carousel
Both “I love you” and “Goodbye”
Are passing with merry music
Carousels are turning around and around

Great mellow jazzy tune with nice Vocaloid singing. Enjoyable chord progression. Really good work with the realtracks, the crooner band is in good hands here and the trumpet fits like a glove smile

Very cool backtrack. I must say that the vocaloid has a very interesting cool sound. Well done

Shigeki,
A very nice swing groove; the horns sound great and the vocaloid gives an ethereal touch.
Smooth and sweet chord progression.
It would be interesting to hear this song with your band and vocalist friends.

Shigeki Adachi,

Excellent - as is all your work. A delightful melody. Your work with vocaloid is outstanding (I have no idea how that is done).

Wonderful instrumentation, arrangement, production. Great mix. It all sounds "natural" - everything fit perfectly.

A terrific listen.

You have certainly capitalized of the marvelous ability of the Crooner Style to deliver.

This song is another exceptional delivery.

You must be very pleased with the result. I am.

Superbly arranged and produced.

It sounds tremendous on our monitors with a wonderful sound stage.

The trumpet is amazing...like somebody you've worked with for years.

Excellent!

Wow, what a tune! The production on this is seriously next level. I love the groove of this tune, and the arrangement is near flawless. The trumpet on this makes it for me. Congrats on this, you deserve to be proud.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi Shigeki,

This is my favorite kind of music. This sounds like it was just finished in a recording studio by a terrific live big band. Reminded me of 1940. Made me want to grab my wife and dance! Your music is always so professionally conceived and delivered. Great sound on a great song.

Alan

Same here.

I loved that big band that you have going on here but I didn't like the vocaloid. I would get a real vocalist for this outstanding backing track.

Hello, Janne, Scott, Robert, Torrey, floyd, Trevor, Janice & Bud, Deryk, Kenny, Graham, Mike, Alan, LPman, Greg, Mario,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your really nice words.
I am very glad to hear you all like this tune.

Janne, Scott, Robert, Torrey, floyd, Graham, LPman,
Many thanks for your nice comments to Miku, vocaloid.

Robert, Graham, Greg, Mario,
If I can find a vocalist suitable for this song, I'd definitely want to make a version of a human female vocalist.

LPman,
I created this song in the following order.
Get the lyrics.
Consider melody in accordance with lyrics.
Find the suitable chords for the melody.
Consider chord progression of intro, interlude, ending.
When all chord progression is decided, input them to BIAB.
Search for the suitable style.
Search for the perfect soloist.
Generate RealTracks.(2 or 3 times)
Write out the WAV file for each instrument and load them into Cubase.
Create a vocaloid track.
Cut away or replace RealTracks that disturb melodies and solos
Mixdown.

Thanks again to all.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi
