Thanks, Jim - much appreciated. The black and brown puppy on the left is ours. She's now 4 1/2 years old. Name is Lucy. Maybe we need to get a Ricky?

Sophisticated cords are way above my paygrade...but we love jazz and this hits all the buttons for us.

An amazing display of the power of BiaB with a creative person behind the keyboard.

Well done!

Hi Guys!

Many thanks for those kind words. I'm not sure if it's sophisticated or not, but it sure was fun playing around with all those whistles and bells that PG Music makes for us - what a company! I'm guessing this is the 10th or 11th product of mixing various instruments and beats. I'm glad it seems to work for you. I'm putting together a full album of these - got 7 of them so far. And I'll definitely give BIAB it's due credit when I do get it ready to go.

Take care and all the best.

Alan

Works for me! smile

This is one of the styles that BiaB excels at. Great mix.

Plus, you've got super-cute puppies in the picture. Who could say anything bad about that?

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

Thanks a bunch, David! And yes, BIAB is a natural fit for the Smooth Jazz genre. I think part of it is a reflection on Dr. Gannon's brother, Oliver. He does many of the Jazz RTS and is very good at it. He recently was awarded the highest official recognition a Canadian musician can receive. The other contributing artists are also quite talented.

They make it very easy for me to plug in a few chords, grab a couple of instruments, find a style and then "GO"! I think BIAB deserves much more credit than I do. But I'm delighted you enjoyed the few things I did with their marvelous program. Many thanks! Best to you.

Alan

Thank you, Kenny! I have quite a few of these smooth jazz pieces but have only posted a few as I think vocals are always more in demand on the forums. But, I'll put one up here and there. Glad you enjoyed it - appreciate you letting me know. Again, a big welcome back!

Alan,

In everything you do, your signature is quality musicianship through and through. As I'm sitting here listening and typing, I'm finding it quite a challenge because the music takes hold and I can't type!

I love the easiness with which this creation flows. From chord to chord, the sound slides into place with precision and intent. This really is a wonderful creation and equally wonderful arrangement.

You say that you 'hope it's listenable'... it's a big and resounding "YES INDEED IT IS" from me!

Please say hi to Di from me.

All the best,
Noel

Noel,

You are too kind. But I sure did enjoy your comments! The arrangement came to me pretty quickly, but deciding on the tracks took a lot more time - tried multiple combinations. Thank you again. All the best to you & yours. Di says "Hi!"

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
