Great work on this Chris! I really enjoyed the overall tone of this. I found this very soothing to listen and the guitar noodling is fantastic! Really enjoyed the movement of the fiddle with the rest of the instruments. Well done!


Cheers,
Joe

Hi Chris,

I might be the biggest fan of Gypsy Jazz on the site. I totally love it. Grappelli and Reinhardt are some of my most listened to YouTube visits and this immediately brought them to mind.

This is really nice!

I stand with Alan on this… Huge gypsy swing fan! Perfectly executed track and I love that you added the tuba, an element that I never would have thought to include in this type of band! Also really like how you ended it on that nice sweet up-note. Great listen on a Sunday morning!

Thanks Joe, Peter, Alan and Tom.
I've used tuba because I think that Dixieland Jazz and Gypsy Jazz have same musical roots. Christian

Chris,

Your Gypsy jazz music is always great!
I think they represent well the spirit of Django Reinhardt.
The chord progression is completely smooth.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

We enjoyed that...a lot!

We've listened to gypsy jazz off and on for many years. We had a friend who could play the style extremely well on fiddle.

Well done!

Intentionally or not, there's something very "30's France" about the whole piece, with the melancholic melody and that chord progression in particular, that I just find completely irresistible.

I have to admit I was sceptical after just looking at that instruments list, which didn't really strike me as a good blend for the intended style... but that was before I listened to the song. Now i think this is nothing short of an absolute masterpiece!

EDIT: I'm only now spotting your geographical location...I was more on it that I even realised! grin

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.
