Was going for a 70s-ish acid-jazz/fusion al la Jean Luc Ponty, Wayne Shorter, et al.

It's not quite where I want it to be, but I've been crazy busy lately. Hopefully my time should be freeing up somewhat within the next couple of months and I'll have more time to work on my music so I'll probably revisit it at a later date.

That said, hope ya'll enjoy

Thanks so much, Noel!

It's actually been a crazy year for me, which entailed moving twice, and significant transitions/added responsibilities in my professional life (all of this ultimately for the better fortunately, but VERY time consuming!).

Things slow down towards the end of the summer though through the first quarter of the next year. I've no intention to move again the foreseeable future barring unforeseen circumstances (fingers crossed!) so I'm really hoping to get back into playing. I even got a entry-level keyboard because I always wanted to play the piano and also want to devote myself to that when some time frees up :-)

This is a terrific display of RT's, loops, an RD and a MST.

A great illustration of what talent can do with this technology.

And a fine mix tops it off.

Enjoyed it!

Nice work DeaconBlues09, what a marvelous song I might say! Fantastic selection of instruments here and rhythm is easy to follow. Thoroughly enjoyed the fiddle to harmonize everything. Well done!

Nice work!

Not only was the foreground music engaging, but the bits of burbling in the background helped create an interesting texture.

Glad you could find time from the trauma of moving to put this together. smile

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

Wow - this is the kind of jazz I really enjoy listening to smile I'm admittedly not too much of a traditionalist in that regard - this reminds me of something off On The Corner or B..'s Brew. Really great grooves, and the instrumentation is simultaneously dizzying and intoxicating. It makes for a unique and rewarding listen.

I wouldn't change a thing - thanks for sharing!

The fiddle/harmonica passage is very cool! This is has interesting layers throughout.
Thoroughly enjoyed.

DeaconBlues,

Very nice soundscape! Hint of Gypsy + harmonica was a nice touch. Jazzy, acidic & groovy!
Enjoyed it.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Well put-together piece. Sweet solo turns over that pad and rhythm. Really appreciated the long, slow fade. Really, really nice.

Thanks Joe, one of my favorite things to do with BiaB is throw a variety of instruments from one would often associate with different genres at together track with some flavorful chord voicings, press "generate and play" and watch (hear) the magic happen grin

Thanks Dcuny!

That "burbling" background took me at least an hour to nail exactly how I wanted it in Izotope Trash 2 (purchased in the recent sale that a forum member kindly posted about in "off-topic"), so I'm most pleased it was noted & appreciated :-)

Thanks Deryk,

This type of acid/fusion-y sound was actually my "gateway drug" to jazz back when I was a young teen, and, to be perfectly honest, I'm still not a huge fan of much "traditional" jazz. The philistine in me still needs likes nice funky rhythm or at least a synthy/textured pulse/sweeping pad to keep me grooving.

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.)
