Fellow User's Forum members...

If you don't have anyplace to go to celebrate this New Year's Eve, why don't you make yourself look good, smell good, take your partner's arm and stroll on down to "Loren's Lounge" to get your jazz lights turned on real bright by some confidently cool cats playing some swingin' jazz organ sounds! There's no cover charge, plenty of parking in the back, ladies are admitted for free, drinks are "on the house" after 12:01 a.m., and the dance floor is open to all the old-schoolers who dig doin' some plain n' fancy steppin' lively to the groove...

Onstage tonight at "Loren's Lounge" we have "Mellow" Mike LeDonne (Real Track #1045) on the Hammond B3 organ, Oliver "On The One" Gannon (Real Track #1087 soloing, and #1101 rhythm) on electric jazz guitar, Terry "The Timekeeper" Clarke (Real Drums #018) on drums, and Neil "Strings" Swainson (Real Track #768) on acoustic bass. I perform the MIDI melody using a SampleTank percussive organ patch. The MIDI organ solo is #338, Blues - Jimmy (Smith) & Wes (Montgomery), organ & guitar alternating, Med-Sw. A-Loads J_JSMITH.STY.

Here's the link to my SoundClick page: https://www.soundclick.com/html5/v4/player.cfm?songID=13824865
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Technical stuff: Real Style _JZOG110.STY (Jazz organ trio, but, of course!!!) Key of Gb, tempo @ 125, meter = 4/4.

At the bridge, the Real Drums change to Jazz Shuffle^, #004, by Craig Scot, to ramp-up the swing thing during the 24-bar solo organ and solo guitar performances, respectively, and then go back to Terry Clarke's sticks and brushes.

Because the Hammond B3 organ has bass pedals, I muted the Real Track rhythm organ instrument (#1045) at the bridge where the solo organ begins playing and substituted Neil Swainson's acoustic bass to get the walkin' bass feel and sound. When the organ solo ends after 24 bars, and the electric jazz guitar solo begins, I un-muted the rhythm organ to take advantage of its deep and resonant, yet mellow tones.

See you at "Loren's Lounge"!

Musically yours,

LOREN (a.k.a. "bluage")

Hi Loren,
I like the theme played by the organ very much.
All sounds so good. It seems so clear !
Perhaps, there's a little problem for the melody played by the organ between 2'40" and 2'55". I think that it doesn't sound as it should.
I wish you all the best for 2019. Christian

This reminds me so much of a small club I visited in Tampa years ago, well after midnight, where a combo just like this was quietly cooking into the night..you totally captured the B3-Jazz guitar feel.

Masterful handling of all the BIAB components, and your production notes help me listen and understand your decision-making.

Loren, thanks for letting me stop in for a nightcap at your lounge and listen in to your swinging band!

You were the only and best band I heard to toast in the New Year. The upbeat jazzy sound was just perfect. Thank you for remembering to post this on New Year's. Donna

Swinging Baby!

I thought I was in an Austin Powers movie and I wanted to put on my red velvet suit and use the word shag a lot--as in shag carpet of course.

Oh BE-HAAAAVE!!!

Yeah baby! It's not a Wo-man! It's a Man-Man! Yeah!!!

Crazy Cats, I'm digging this cool sound.

[cut to]

Ladies and Gentleman, Mr. Burt Bacharach.

Great party song man.

Hello, "Chris 37"...

I'm pleased to hear that the theme pleased you!

Concerning the your comment about "the melody played by the organ between 2'40" and 2'55", I believe you may be referring to the very swiftly performed eighth and quarter notes leading-off the melody in a few bars. It's a performance trick that was and is still used by Hammond B3 organ instrumentalists. It's just a rapid "staccatto" effect similar to what you would hear on notes that are articulated with a dot beneath the notehead. What did it sound like to you?

Thanks for joining me at "Loren's Lounge", and thanks also for listening to so closely to the song.

Sincerely,

LOREN

Hello, Sergio...

It's nice to know that the melody appealed to you. There's nothing like the Hammond B3 organ sound. It's warm, mellow, and when played in a jazz setting, it swings like a dream!

Thank you for listening, Sergio. By the way, I really enjoyed listening to your song, "La Melodia Navidena".

Sincerely,

LOREN

Hey, there, "Scott C"...

Happy New Year back at'cha smile! Yessir, the B3 is wonderous musical instrument, especially for jazz.

Always great to have a solid musician like yourself to visit "Loren's Lounge", and thanks for the thumbs-up!

Sincerely,

LOREN

Hello, there, "Tano Music"...

I was sorry to read about your misfortune concerning the exterior hard-drive. I once lost a bunch of songs before using BIAB by re-formatting a drive, forgetting that I hadn't backed it up. But, do you know that after grieving over it and calling myself "stupid" over and over again, not only did I re-construct many of them, eventually, but I believe they came out better the second time around due to having to re-imagine them.

Anywho, I dig your use of the word "cooking", as that is a term used by jazz musicians to describe a performance that really gets all the instrumentalists showing-off their "chops", right? Also, you happened to use the word "nightcap" in your nice comments on the song. That's quite a serendipitous thing to say, as before titling my composition, "Loren's Lounge", I was going to call it "Nightcap"!

Glad you thought the band was swinging. As "they" say, "all the pots were on!"

Hope you can recover your files.

Sincerely,

LOREN

Dear Donna...

Awww, shucks, you didn't have to say that, but...I'm sure glad you did, anyway smile !!!

Having a musically gifted lady like you in the audience at "Loren's Lounge" was a special treat. Me and the boys -- "Mellow" Mike LeDonne", Oliver "On the One" Gannon, Terry "The Timekeeper" Clarke, and Neil "Strings" Swainson tip our hats to you! I'm pleased as a new penny that that you felt the sound was "upbeat", 'cause I was trying to create a party-like atmosphere in the arrangement.

Sincerely,

LOREN

Great party song man.


Mr. Snyder, you are right! "Party music" it was meant to be; cigarette in one hand, drink in the other, leaning on the bar, trying to chat-up some "pretty young thing" above the hub-bub of the bubbly New Year's Eve patrons before asking her to dance...Austin Powers would surely "wig out" at that scene.

What an incredibly funny character he was. It's time for Mike Myers to "do it again", eh? Thanks for having a seat, diggin' the beat and tappin' your feet at "Loren's Lounge"!

Cool, man, cool.

LOREN

That was very nicely put together, melodic and interesting. The organ sounded excellent and the whole song was very atmospheric.
An excellent listen.

Thank you for sharing, Loren - and happy new year to you! I really enjoyed listening to the track - it's a style of music that I really like! I wish there were more places in my country where I could go and listen to "lounge" jazz.


Take care,
Will
