Dear Forum friends,

Here is my third submission for Xtra Styles PAK 5 Song Contest. And it is the last one.
The category is Jazz.
This song was written when I was young, I remade it with Xtra Styles PAK 5 for the submission this time.
I listened to various demo songs of Xtra 5 Styles to find a fitted one to this tune, and I encountered this style fortunately.

Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Summary of lyrics:

Close your eyes and put your cheek to my cheek
Several couples of happy lovers
Are dancing in the dim light

We too, let's dance tonight
Without distracted by them around us
Put your hands firmly on my shoulders
And do not leave your hands from me

Leave your body tight to me
And dance leaving it to my lead
Let's talk the words of love while dancing

Let's continue till morning
We will get intoxicated with the happinesss
Let’s embrace and leave everything as time passes
I will give you a flame of passion

Shigeki Adachi,

This is a delight.

A beautiful song. Terrific melody.

The strings arrangement is your typical excellent job. Reminds one of the hits of the Sinatra days... Excellent mix.

I enjoyed your vocals, too.

Wow! That is lovely. The two of us love the Frank Sinatra/Ella Fitzgerald era and this took us right to that place.

What an outstanding composition, performance and production!

Shigeki,

Lush and lovely - the whole backing is nice, but those strings are just so well arranged and orchestrated.
Your vocals have never sounded better.
Well done!

Very nice and big feel production, I know the lyrics are there in English.

I would really love to hear it sung in English, It would definitely fall in to the big band sound here.

Thanks

Hello, floyd

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune, the arrangement and my vocal.
As you say, I arranged this song with consciousness of Sinatra and his arranger, Nelson Riddle.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.

It's good to hear such a cool Japanese production here.
And very nice to hear you sing it.
Top notch, pro all the way orchestration!

Shigeki..
Immediately liked the escalating melody sequence, and overall excellent production.
I didn't purchase the Xtra Styles PAK 5..but, hearing this style, I think I will decide to buy it!
Very professional string arrangement, and your vocal is great too!
Thank you for updating a very good composition with these newer BIAB tools!

Hello, Janne

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune, the orchestration and my vocal.
You are right. I also think the lyrics are young.
I can be a little shy when singing it now.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.
