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.

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

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.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
