Hi all, Here's a french song.
This bossa doesn't want to become a samba !
Patrick Fournerat has written the lyrics and he sings.

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/bossa-legere

Here's an approximate translation :

This is a light bossa
carried by the sea breeze.
She seemed to come from afar
like a scent of sea air.

I will dance with strings
if I can tune up.
I will be a tightrope walker
on my guitar neck.
Bossa will get out of my fingers.

I found her indolent.
Her melody is mesmerizing
but something was wrong.
The tempo was too slow.

I told her, "Speed up! ".
But with her temperament,
she does not tolerate
to be compared with a samba.

"This bossa doesn't want to become a samba !"

Funny!

It's always cool to hear a Bossa and this is a nice collaboration.

We enjoyed it!

Nicely done smile Very well textured, and easy on the ears. Flows like water, and has a nice gentle groove. The kind of tune you can shut your eyes and lose yourself in. I like how lush and pretty it is. Loved the vocals too, and appreciate the translation.

Thanks for sharing!

Lovely arrangement. Great work with the horn solos. Patrick has the most pleasant voice. It's a pleasure to listen. The lyric is outstanding (and I think little was lost in translation). Very much enjoyed.

Hey Bossa man,

you surely do have a very good feeling for Bossa. And you have an amazing choice of RealTracks. A very smooth tune, enviting one to just sit back and feel the mood.

A very appealing tune, very well-produced, too.

Cheers,

Stefan

Thanks Joe, Tangmo and Stefan,
I don't know if I am Bossa Man but I know Bossa Nova is a fascinating music. Christian

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

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."
