This is BIAB?

I never take the time explore this side of biab

but this sounds great!

I love the horn section and the whole swing feel

this is in good hands, very enjoyable

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


Hi Noel,

You are so kind! Thank you very much!

As far as chord/progression repertoires, I have a few stand-bys but try to find a new twists at times. I like the unexpected as long as it ingratiates what's already there.

I devote at least two hours to practising almost every day. Of that time, I spend at least a full hours trying various progressions and inversions of chords to find new sounds. I spend the rest of the time practicing lead riffs and fills. I don't so scales. Chords and progressions come to me relatively easily. I have a theory about that but won't go into it here. Perhaps I'll post that on a different forum sometime soon. It has to do with chords, math and foreign languages.

Thanks again! Best to you.

Alan

Thank you very much! I appreciate the great feedback. I've given a little thought to a lyric recently but nothing solid has appeared yet. We'll see! Best to you.

I can't believe this is really BIAB smile At least I couldn't tell whether this was played by real band or not. You have done great job to make this so authentic in every way from chords to the arrangement.

Al-David,

Every time I hear a song like this it makes me wonder why I don’t listen to more of it. Really engaging listen certainly worthy of the big band era. Well done!

All the best,

Deej

Thanks a bunch, DJ. We're delighted you enjoyed it. We (my wife and I) love the Big Band era, although we're in tune with a lot of the modern offerings, too. To give you an idea how old I am, I can still remember when Harry Truman was President! Yikes!!!

I'm glad you enjoyed it. And thanks for letting us know. Wishing you the best.

Alan

I'm agree with all the previous comments.
It's a very cool song even without lyrics.

Hello, Alan

Nice swing jazz!
Tommy Dorsey feel rather than Benny Goodman.
Is this probably one of the styles of Xtra Styles 5?
With your vocals and lyrics, it seems to be able to offer to the Xtra Styles 5 contest soon.
I feel that it will be a really good song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hi Shigeki,

No, it's not from the Xtra Styles 5. I from one of the BIAB 2018 styles. Will be ordering the Xtra Styles set next week and, hopefully, get something entered in the contest.

I'm very pleased you enjoyed it. Thank you for telling me! Best to you.

Alan

I'm just hearing this for the first time now - and wow, what a jam! That groove is fantastic, and the swing on it is superb. I can only imagine how unreal this would sound performed live by a band. Some interesting and lively progressions here too, and the mix is on point as well.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile
