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.

Thank you Billy for liking my stuff. Right, living in Miami is hard not to get Cuban friends and eat all the S's!

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

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
