Twixt Midnight And Morn

A slow, expressive acoustic piano piece you might hear played live at a supper club, lounge, etc.

This is one I put together a year or so ago. It was for a Songtradr submission ... didn't get picked up. It's a simple piece played by a trio consisting of acoustic bass, drums with brushes and acoustic piano. Open to any suggestions/comments. Thanks in advance.


The band, and all that stuff:


File:_Twixt Midnight And Morn.SGU
Key=Bb , Tempo 60, Length (m:s)=3:36

Style is _SLOWBAL.STY (Slow Jazz Ballad w/ Piano & Bass)

RealTracks in style: ~732:Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Ballad Sw 060
RealTracks in style: ~742:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Jazz Ballad Sw 060
RealDrums in Song: JazzTerryClarke^02-a,b:Brushes

Hi Jim ...

Thank you so much! I truly appreciate those very kind and warming words.

Don't know what part of Texas you live in, but I lived in San Antonio for 6 years back in the 70s. Other than Houston, probably the most humid place in the country I've been to!

Again, many thanks ...

Alan

This had a rather smooth sound to it and was very soothing to listen to.

I think I said twitx one time up here in the north and

everyone froze thinking I was having some kind of attack.

This sounds like a nice place, are we having surf and turf later

after the cocktails of course.

Seriously, I like this a lot, it's mixed really well

and you do introduce us to areas and sounds that I never explore on BiaB

Thanks Alan

Hi Al-David, I really enjoyed the overall tone of this. This is beautiful and I really dug the chord progression. Really enjoyed the piano movement. Well done!

Al,
I enjoyed the laid back feel- the piano never gets busy.
Your progression is so smooth and the mix sounds good.
Less use of the great depth of jazz Biab styles seems to be made of in forum songs-nice to be reminded like this.

Yep...sounds like the live music at one of our favorite "splurge" restaurants. Lovely progression that's taken to a very satisfying end.

Very nice work - expressive, peaceful and tranquil. It has such a nice texture to it. Smooth as silk, and really smoky. The kind of tune you can snap your fingers to no problem. I imagine it'd sound great live.

Thanks for sharing!

Ha! Actually, the only time I'd ever heard "twixt" used was in the title of a book Pat Boone (yeah, that Pat Boone) wrote back in the late 1950s titled "Twixt Twelve And Twenty" As I put this together, for some reason that old memory visited me and I stole that word from the book title. Glad you enjoyed it! Join me at the bar ... drinks on me!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
