Let me know what you think.

Sweet Baby Doll

Oh Baby. Talking bout my sweet baby.
Im feeling kinda hazy bout my sweet baby doll.

Where walking stroll along and where talking.
I'll always want you near me as sweet baby doll.

Chorus
We'll walk the avenue, take in view.
I'm so plum crazy about. You you and only you

Bridge
Blooming all flowers are blooming now you got me
swooning for my sweet baby doll.

I'm holding your tiny hand my worlds revolving
I'm so beholding to my sweet baby doll

Chorus
We'll walk the avenue, take in view.
I'm so plum crazy about. You you and only you

Rob,

This is excellent - almost a late 40s early 50s sound. Love the overall production - bass line and horns are great!

Rob, I agree with Bob about the late 40’s to early 50’s sound. Mainly because of the dominance of the horns/ big band sound. A really well done clean sounding track with a great vocal like you always produce! Thanks, Torrey

Rob, this has that swing big band thing in spades. Great vocal. I sure did enjoy it. This type of music was played by my Mother on an old piano in our house growing up. Memories.... Tom

Rob,

MY KINDA MUSIC!!!!

This is excellent. I love the arrangement. I also found myself smiling heaps at how you used language from the period to help boost the authenticity of the composition! That's paying attention to detail smile

It's energetic thumbs up from me.

All the best,
Noel

Your vocal and lyric are perfect for the laid-back big band style.

I enjoyed listening to it.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Really nice job on this one smile It is very reminiscent of 40's/50's big band. I love the happy vibe of this one - it's easy to move along and tap your foot to. I'd imagine this sound incredible performed live.

Awesome work, and thanks for sharing smile

I really like the mood of the song, creating image of Elvis singing in a Hawaii T-shirt on a soundtrack of a Christmas movie from 50's. Great use of the horns and oohs smile

Rob,
You nailed the period sound on this- the bass and horns are great and I liked those RT oohs (first time I`ve heard them used here).
You always deliver on the vocals and this is no exception- very cool tune!

Hello, Rob

Super Vocal as always!
Nice old standard tune!
The big band track is also very effective with using only necessary parts.
As D. Cuny said, your vocal and lyric are perfect for the laid-back big band style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

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.

•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.
