Hello, forum friends

This song was written in a quick step rhythm for the ballroom dancing CD about 5 years ago.
In order to post it to the forum this time I made a new remix version.
It is a big band style instrumental tune.
Now please enjoy it with straight Scotch, or your favorite cocktail if you like.

Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi Shigeki Adachi

Wow, you have so much melody control, I almost hear... "Heres Johnny!" How you can make BIAB sound like your Dr. Carl Hilding Severinsen from "The Tonight Show," Is utterly amazing! Well done

Suprisingly catchy jazzy groove. Superb arrangement and great melody. I think this a fantastic example of the BIAB use, because this sounds like a real live band and nothing like computer generated.

Shigeki..loved it! So expertly arranged, and your midi sound 'tools' are well-chosen. I especially liked how you varied the theme each time it repeated, using different band sections and harmonies. You are such as skilled arranger, I am taking lessons from your work! Thanks for remixing this track!

Hello, LPman

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune.
4 voice jazz harmonization is hardly used since learned when I was young, so I am afraid that there may be some doubtful places in this tune.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

I heard lots of big band music growing up, my dad was a big fan and it was always playing in the house.

You really captured the mood of that era, sounds like a live band. Very well done!

And yeah, if your going to drink Scotch, straight is the only way to go! smile

What a jam! Love the bouncy groove, and thought the MIDI work here was top notch. It all flows so nicely. Got my toe tapping within a few seconds. That aside, the mixing job sounds concise and professional.

You should be proud of this one - great work, and thanks for sharing smile

Great! The horns are amazing.

Both the composition, arrangement and mix are outstanding.

Love the melody.

Shigeki,
Everything about this is top class, in fact its so live sounding I`m having flashbacks to some ( less than stellar) dance lessons!
Wonderful big band music.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
