Loved the intro for this one Mike. Sax was excellent. Piano was very cool as well.

A nice mix and pretty song. The sax works very well and the piano is excellent.

Playful piano, bluesy sax and a very good band; I enjoyed the meanderings and interplay of soloists.

We love a baritone sax and this is good use of that RT. Blues and jazz
do have a LOT of common ground as they sprang from the same well.

Well composed and mixed too!

Enjoyed the listens.

It worked - from the laid-back intro to the build at the end. laugh

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

Hello Cubanpete,

Beautiful sax game. The piano is well spatialized, the brass are excellent. Very relaxing intrumental composition creating a pleasant atmosphere. It's a very good composition.

Best regard

PG Music News
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."
