A Pair Of Peaches


Just a simple little cocktail piano piece I threw together some time ago. A trio: piano, drums and acoustic bass. Nothing real special. I wrote it for a submission opportunity for a scene with some cocktail piano music to play in the background at an upscale restaurant. I saw the opportunity about 45 minutes before it was set to expire. I was twenty minutes late getting this finished, so it never got considered. It's a quick throw-together - about and hour and a half from start to finish. Hope you enjoy your listen.

The title came from an advertisement I saw in the local paper as I was putting this together - they were advertising fresh peaches for sale and showed a couple of pics of peaches (not this pic). Sounded as good as anything!


File:A Pair of Peaches.SGU
Key=Bb , Tempo 95, Length (m:s)=4:10

Style is _SJAZZC3.STY (Cool Jazz w/ Guitar Solo)

RealTracks in song: ~2311:Bass, Acoustic
RealTracks in song: ~943:Piano, Acoustic
RealDrums in Song: JazzBrushesSticks: a: Brushes b: Snare, Ride

(There is no guitar solo, although the style name indicates there is.)

Hi Alan,

Well this one certainly sets the tone! I always love a Jazz Piano Trio and you've done everything right to keep my enthusiasm for such ensembles intact! It's a really pleasant and happy journey in music that you've composed here. I was with you all the way.

I can't believe that you did this in such a small time frame. As I've said a number of times, I'm amazed at how productive you are, at how little time you often use to complete a work, and at how very good your compositions sound. It's true... I'm envious smile

Thank you for sharing!

Best wishes to you and Di,
Noel

It’s a shame this was 20 minutes late. It sounds like a winner to me. Masterfully done. Great work.

Sounds good to me, Alan, great groove and changes.

Too bad you missed the deadline, but you never know, a similar opportunity could present itself in the future.

What a gorgeous and pleasant little tune smile Really smooth sounding, and this would sound perfect in a lounge setting. I'd definitely keep this one tucked away in case the opportunity arises again.

Nice work and thanks for sharing!

Nicely done, Alan.

I would think there would be opportunities to use it for another pitch sometime...

Hi Noel.

Thank you very much! Glad it works for you. As far as the time frame, I guess I don't go through all the steps many of the other contributors here do. The chord progressions come to m e pretty quickly. As long as it keeps working, I guess I'll keep doing it that way! Wishing you the very best.

Alan

Deryk,

You are too kind! But I appreciate all those nice things you said. But it wouldn't be possible without the great software all of you at PG Music create. I'm very thankful for it. Wishing you the best.

We surely can imagine the restaurant and the piano player somewhere in the background.
Really nice cocktail music!
