I invited the robot. I provided her with the lyrics and the melody. But it just didn't work out, so here is the song without:

Man, I hate it when that happens.

I listened carefully to the song, and I can verify that it indeed lacks any singing robots, Martian or otherwise.

A fine song - nicely mixed, like stepping into a jazz club with a more-than-competent band, and someone who was paying attention behind the mixing console. smile

But having gotten Chekov's gun in my head, I couldn't help but wonder: what would it have sounded like with a singing robot? wink

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

Really nice progression, Will. Love the small combo and all the lead turns. Nicely finished off with the bass solo before the final out. A very smooth and fully satisfying listen.

Very unique song title for sure - but I thoroughly enjoyed the tune smile It flows smooth as water, and the saxophone in this glides over the instrumentation perfectly. A really top notch arrangement - a fine mixing job on it too.

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice, Will.

Well paced. Well mixed.

It is amazing how good the BIAB jazz RTs are...

A good listen. Cool ending.

Definitely works without any robot smile Superb progression and band plays like a dream, you have selected great soloists. Nice instrument breaks. BIAB can really play cool jazz. To my ears, this has the mood of a Scandinavian document from the 60's.

Thanks to all of you! I really appreciate your nice comments. I am - however - quite surprised that you were able to listen to the song, because when I log on to SoundCloud all my songs has disappeared...

Here is me praying that it is a temporary glitch...

Will,
The bass is so smooth and soloists change at just the right moments. Love the progression,the relaxed feel,the ending.Beautifully produced too...who needs robot singers when you can make music this good without.

If anyone doubts the power and finesse of BiaB they need to listen to this composition.

Great progression, choice of RTs/RD and wrapped with a fine mix.

Kudos!

Dear Will,

no doubt that we have a lot of people here on the forum who sure know how to use their BIAB brilliantly. But as well no doubt that you're in the front of the front line of them - it's really amazing what you get out of our beloved software...

Although it's been all said, I gladly repeat it: Excellent chord progressions, fantastic choice of RTs, and the way you manage to use soloist tracks is amazing.


A truly great production and an immense pleasure to listen to - so 'clubby'. Since I know you like that style: Do you know the Charlie Byrd album 'Blues For Night People'? It has been released with a different (but similar) title on CD - it's one of the greatest albums of that genre I know.

And you're the 'King of Weird Song Titles' anyway (who would even try to top 'Will Goes To Bollywood'?)....

Love your stuff, I really do love your stuff !!!!


Take care,

Stefan

Thanks for all your kind comments, Stefan.
I will take a listen to that Charlie Byrd album - it is always nice to get recommendations. Maybe it will inspire me to change the way I express myself in music.

Thanks again for listening!
