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!

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

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!

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.

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.)
