Hello, forum friends.

In January of this year we had a project to make songs to Joanne's lyrics “The Paradox Of You” in this forum, and I also participated in it with a vocaloid Avanna’s vocal.
To my great honor, Joanne herself has decided to sing my version.
As FAWM was over she can take time to record her vocal.
The recording was completed the other day, so I would like to introduce it to you.
Joanne was a little worried that she had not a jazz type voice, but I think she presented a wonderful vocal.
Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

The Paradox of You
(J. Cooper – S. Adachi)

Listening to the pouring rain
I know the sun will come
Light from dark and dry from wet
When wintertime is done

I see myself as the earth
And you the vast blue sky
Sometimes I keep you grounded
And you just let me fly

You are my true harmony
the balance that I find
through the windows of my days
In corners of my mind

Sometimes you’re the thick and long roots
growing in the night
Sometimes I’m the brilliant green leaves
bathing in your light

I love it when we talk
I love the silence too
I love the yin and yang of life
The paradox of you

You are just my harmony
the balance that I find
through the windows of my days
In corners of my mind

Sometimes you’re the thick and long roots
growing in the night
Sometimes I’m the brilliant green leaves
bathing in your light

In and out, hot and cold
Fear and courage, young and old
Good and bad, salty sweet
Up and down, messy neat

I love it when we talk
I love the silence too
I love the yin and yang of life
The paradox of you

Listening to the pouring rain
I know the sun will come
Light from dark and dry from wet
When wintertime is done

I see myself as the earth
And you the vast blue sky
Sometimes I keep you grounded
And you just let me fly

Wow - you did an unreal job on this one, animarorecords! The groove, and the way everything flows together is superb. It is super catchy, in the best possible way. You got my toe tapping in about 10 seconds with this one. After a few listens I could imagine myself singing along too.

Great work, and thanks for sharing smile

I think you have accidentally linked this to the Vocaloid version - doesn't sound like Joanne.

Hello, Peter

Thank you very much for informing me about the wrong version.
I'm so sorry I uploaded the wrong file to Soundcloud by mistake.
I replaced it with a correct sound source immediately.
The link is the same as it is, but now the correct sound source will be played.
If you do not mind, please listen to the correct version of Joanne once again.

Best regards.

Shigeki & Joanne,
This was such lovely jazzy interpretation of the lyrics- it was good in the vocaloid version, now its much better!
Joanne`s vocal shows how classy the tune is... like something from a romantic 50`s movie.
I hope you get together again!

Robert

Great collaboration and arrangement. This is my favorite version to date. Enjoyed my listen and was pleased how well Joanne embraced doing a version a bit different than normal. Well done.

Hello, Robert

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am always very encouraged by your nice words.
After all the human voice is amazing.
Since it is not always possible to get in touch with vocalists, I often make a vocaloid version first.
But if I later replace it with an actual voice of a vocalist, I myself am always be deeply impressed by the warmth.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Shigeki Adachi and Joanne,

I'm really enjoying the listen.

As I'm sitting here tapping my feet and typing in time to the music, I'm smiling at the arrangement, Joanne's vocals and the way that the whole package is put together. It's definitely a creation that both of you can comfortably feel proud of.

All the best,
Noel

Really nice!! I did not know Joanne could sing Jazz. The melody is another classic...so sweet and memorable! Jazz guitar is nice but maybe a bit loud before the solo. Great collab guys!! Take care. Greg

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.
