I posted this over on Soundcloud several weeks ago but never posted it here. Maybe you'll enjoy it a bit. I was playing around with the big band horns and ended up with this. I think it's begging for a lyric - will work on that some time in the future.

If you're wondering about the name of the song - when I was selling real estate back in Missouri, the address of the first house I sold was 636 Swing Court. I slightly modified it for the song title.

Thank you, Cliff! I agree that the acoustic bass steals the show. But all I did was select it and punch in a few chords. Glad you enjoyed it! Best to you.

Hi Scott,

Glad you liked it - thanks for letting me know. As far as genres, I like almost all them. Although i played primarily country and southern rock for a living, I always messed around with music from various genres when at home. Good music shines, regardless thew genre, so I appreciated all the various styles.

Again, many thanks. Best to you.

ALan

Very nice, Alan! Great arrangement and mix.
I don't think it needs a vocal actually, it works well as an instrumental. But, having said that it will be interesting to see what you come up with!

Ok, I KNOW this is gooood because I can pretty much picture the band that's playing this. I feel it actually happened! THAT is a great quality in a song for sure.

Well done all the way around. What is the bass player's name? He's holding it down. wink

The only suggestion I could give is to put our a tip jar. smile

Really cool song!

Alan,

I have to hand it to you, you have a terrific flair for selecting exactly the right chords that (a) guarantee a wonderful music journey and (b) showcase a specific genre beautifully. As I'm sitting here thinking about it, it seems to me that you must have a huge repertoire of chord sequences and genres stored in your mind.

It's always a pleasure to hear what you create.

I'm glad to read in your other thread that Di is back home again. That's wonderful news! "Hi Di!!!"

All the best to you both,
Noel

Allan you did an outstanding job on this. This could be played on Big Band Friday radio show here in Rochester
http://jazz901.org/
and I'll bet that no one would think this is all computer generated.

This song is something special for sure.

Keep up the great work.

Big band is one of those sounds that BiaB does really well. As you said, the upright bass is very cool.

I was on the fence last month about getting a sampled upright bass library. The instrument was quite nice, and the demos were pretty compelling, but I knew I couldn't justify the purchase because I'd never be able to write anything as nice as what BiaB could do with the push of a button. smile

Anyway, pleasant listen and thanks for including a little background!

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

Alan,

This is a style that I would probably only listen to watching a movie... it is so well done that even an old folkie like me can`t resist.Works just fine as an instrumental, but if you add a lyric I hope you keep the title!

Being a bass fiddle picker I (Bud) laser beamed right in on the bass. Excellent as is the entire production. The earliest music I remember were my parent's 1940's and early 1950's swing records. And I, as well as Janice, have loved the genre ever since.

Kudos on this. It sounds very convincing!

Thanks, Dave. I've been thinking about a lyric but nothing significant yet. The title boxes in a lyric to some extent, but I can work around that, I think. We'll see what happens. Thanks again.

Howdy, HTL

That's always such a great compliment when a listener, particularly a fellow musician, tells you they have a vivid picture of the band playing the song. And yeah, I'm gonna have to give that bassist a huge raise, I guess! The tip jar is in the cabinet at this time, so we'll just take comments for now. And thank you so much for yours. Wishing you well.

Alan
