Here's a project that couldn't have been done without BIAB although you kind of have to listen for it. I started with a MIDI download. I did the project in Logic Pro. I added vocals (my lyrics) and an original electric mandolin solo. But used BIAB for the sax solo, a comping piano, a comping jazz guitar and some important piano held chords during the vocals. Like I said: couldn't have done it w/o BIAB.

Really nice, Scott! I can hear this in a smokey jazz bar in the 50's. Some good music from that era.

This is just great. Tasty instrumentals, and some very cool melody/harmony jazz vocals. I couldn't make out much of the lyric, unfortunately, but still enjoyed the listen very much.

Wow - what a tune! I really love the harmonies on this, and they pair perfect with those smoky backing tracks. It has tons of character and flows beautifully. Phenomenal solos as well.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

Scott, I love the smoke filled lounge feeling you have going on here. I could hear the cocktail glasses clicking together in the background. This is like the Ames Brothers jamming with some of Count Basie's band members.

Great production!

Cool tune. Interesting and slightly haunting feel to the vocals. I picture walking down rain slicked city streets in the evening wearing a fedora.

Scott,

Pretty sound, impressive harmonies. I’m not a “jazz guy,” but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate what it takes to put something like this together. Everything comes together so well on this one. Excellent piece of music . . . Nice job!

My kind regards,

Deej
