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.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
