This is an instrumental Contemporary Jazz song. It's just me dreaming about being on a warm sandy beach with a gentle ocean breeze blowing on my face. Hopefully it makes someone happy

Oh yes...that is a happy-making piece. Lovely tone and a great melodic line. Loved the happy, busy perc and the short horn solos.

This is great Torrey! Love the groove on this and the production is outstanding!

The crowd noise is also very cool. That Godin sounds tremendous!

Torrey,
Very relaxing tune. Wonderful arrangement and playing! You got a fun photo to accommodate this tune too smile
I enjoyed it much!

P.S. Just curious, are you familiar with the band Acoustic Alchemy?

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Torrey ...

This is terrific, engaging composition. Loved the hint of scat with the lead guitar on the chorus. The horns are nice, too!

I absolutely loved the tone on your guitar! So perfect for the mood of the song. The crowd noise behind the sax before the last guitar lead was a real nice touch! And there's no need to mention the great percussions as they speak quite well for themselves. Beyond excellent, my fgriend. What a real treat ....

Alan

Hi Torrey,

This is Excellent!

Lovely lines on the guitar, and great tone too. Also loved the percussion track you did and the background vocals.

Great track, just what I needed to listen to for my first song of the day smile

Torrey,

This is excellent. The mix is outstanding. Everything sits well.

What a nice melody (and repeating theme). Nice guitar work.

Seems like everyone is finding "new and different" drum tracks in BIAB these days. Nice!

Very enjoyable listen!

Very well done smile Love the groove on this, and thought the progressions were awesome. A very interesting choice for percussion, but it really helped distinguish it and give it a modern edge. It's a really fun tune that I can imagine would fill a dancefloor in minutes flat.

Thanks for sharing!

Very atmospheric, literally and figuratively...can smell the sea breeze!

Wonderful melodic playing and all your contributions + BiaB make for a fascinating band.

The nylon is so cool.

The fretless bass is a great choice!

And the mix sounds right in the pocket on our monitors.

Superb...all the way around.

Torrey,

This is about as good as it gets! Seriously strong arrangement here. Not only can I not think of anything I don't like about this one, I'm having a hard time deciding what I like the most about it. The tempo is perfect (so important), the groove is right there, the effects are stunning, the scat with the lead is perfect. I could go on and on.

VERY well done, my friend!

Steve

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
