The Ark

Homage to Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche, who founded L'Arche--group homes for developmentally disabled adults who previously were kept at home "in the dark".

-------------------
No matter how young or old,
This world can be cruel and cold;
Though you're not the same, your heart's alive;
Alive with a dream of a home
Where you're not alone;
Well, that ship of hope will soon arrive.

This vessel survives the night,
A refuge of faith and light;
We might not see things the world's way;
So if you've been kept in the dark,
Come on and embark!
This ark was built by Jean Vanier.

Chorus:
We're happy to give with one heart, together in life.
Happy to live ...so alive!

So if you've been kept in the dark--
Come out and embark !
This ark was built in love;
This ark is from above;
This ark was built by Jean Vanier.

I enjoyed listening - interesting chord changes, and your songs have got a unique sound.

Plus, it's not often we get an extended bass solo! smile

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

Nice work on this Tano smile I loved the peaceful, swaying groove here - and like all your tunes, it really has a unique sound to it. Really smooth and easy on the ears. Plus, it's a gorgeous tribute to a good cause.

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

The two of us spent virtually our entire careers working with the developmentally disabled.

That makes this great composition even more meaningful.

Well done in all aspects!

Hello, Tom

Very good song with a lot of French Chanson feel.
At the same time it has also Tom Jobim's feel as usual.
Really nice Bass solo!
And Accordion gives an especially nice taste to this song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

I was immediately impressed with the phrasing.

The musical balance is ideal, and the overdubbing of voicing is perfect, and gives stereo depth to the delivery.

The style reminds me of songs such as Tiger In The Rain.

Quality throughout.

Hi Tom,
Your bossa is very well build.
Lyrics don't leave indifferent.
The melody is clear and limpid carried by your voice.
And this accordion in a bossa is very creative. Congratulations.
Christian

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
