An attempt to write in the style of "The Rat Pack," Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.

With the exception of the vocals, everything was generated by BIAB.

Mastering was done in Ozone 5.

Vocals by Dave Rhodes, of Albany, NY.

Hello Bluzgtr. You have set the bar very high and reached above it.
This fits the genre and era very well.
Congrats to you and the vocalist. Rob

bluzgtr,

Welcome to the Showcase.

Nicely done. Good mix. Really like the punch in that walking bass.

Dave has a great voice for the style.

Enjoyed.

Hello, Bluzgtr

An attempt to write in the style of "The Rat Pack," Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Joey Bishop.
Yes, it was done very well and successfully.
This tune reminds me of "Engel Eyes" of Sinatra.
As floyd said, Dave has a great voice for the style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

We listen to a zillion genres and this is one that is rarely heard on the forum. You gotta have a great vocalist and production chops to take on a project like this and you pulled it off...very well!

We enjoyed it.

What a nice compliment. I've never heard that phrase before, and I like it.

About a half-century ago, I was living in Los Angeles. I met two men from the Australian television industry. They used to sail up to L.A every 6 months to buy programming. They had a keg of Australian beer mounted in the galley. That was when I learned that American beer was a wimpy, pallid product.

Somewhere in my archives is one I wrote called "Funky Chicken." Yours is better.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
