This instrumental has very warm sunny summer feeling, especially in the strings and piano - everything mixed nicely together. Enjoyable chord progression. Good listen when heat wave is knocking on the door smile

Alan,

No one writes this style of music better than you... You have such a subtle touch - everything fits together so well and has a voice.

Loved it!

Bob

Loved this piece Alan. Loved the the guitar sound Fooled me at the first few notes. Almost sounded like a sax. Very cool.

You are the chord master on these instrumentals, Al- so smoothly done and enjoyable in all respects.

I enjoyed this, it brought me back to the 70s and my collection of CTI jazz albums. Great stuff!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

What a nice tune! I really enjoyed listening to this.
Good choice of instruments and very well produced!

It was like listening to an early record from Larry Carlton or Lee Ritenour - very 70/80-ish. smile

Looking forward to hear more music from you!
Will

Alan - I had to quote Bob here. He stated it perfectly. So well done!

Sounds like a George Benson track...

Alan,
perfect tune to start my day! Very nice arrangement and mix!
All you need is to find a light jazz vocalist to sing out melody smile


Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Really well done! Love the upbeat vibe to this - definitely matches the weather where we are lately. Smooth as butter, and nice and easy on the ears. Reminds me of Bob James a bit.

Thanks for sharing smile

Lovely combo. This has a "live" in studio sound that works wonderfully. Excellent movement of the harmonies/progression and the lead is killer. Just great.

That is an amazingly cohesive sound from those RT's. Like the artists have played together for a while (maybe they have smile )

You have a wonderful ear for these compositions -- like Bob said "a subtle touch) and we always enjoying you sharing them with us.

Thanks for sharing this Al-David! This definitely has a breezy vibe to it. The strings really help harmonize everything too. Nice work!

Hello Robert ...

You are much too kind ... but I'll find a way to deal with it. This is my favorite genre for instrumentals. Thank you very, very much. Best to you ...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
