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!

Band-in-a-Box® Country Music Add-ons!

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

You might not think of Band-in-a-Box® as a country music making machine, but you'd be surprised... there are OVER 850 Country RealTracks available!

See (hear?) the Country songs created by Band-in-a-Box® users when you check out the Band-in-a-Box® Radio playlists Country/EZ Listening/Folk 1 and Country/EZ Listening/Folk 2.

Feeling inspired to create your own Country song in Band-in-a-Box®? Pop into the RealTracks Picker and create your own custom country band by filtering for "Country" or choose an existing Country style within the StylePicker Window by choosing a "Country" Filter String (from the drop down menu).

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 French for Mac is Here!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 apporte plus de 50 nouvelles fonctionnalités ! Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks. Le nouveau navigateur de fonctions permet à l'utilisateur nouveau ou "tête en l'air" de trouver et d'utiliser facilement la plupart des fonctionnalités/raccourcis/documents à partir d'une seule fenêtre. L'égalisation du tempo permet de changer un morceau rubato enregistré en un tempo fixe. L'étirement audio temps/pitch a été amélioré (Elastique inclus).

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
