Big fan of Django here...which style did you use for this?
Can you provide a lyric translation? I'd love to understand the story.
BIAB has really good RT's for gypsy jazz, and you've used them well.
I've found that some of the solo RT's have great phrases, but they jump around alot and at times do not seem to "link" well with each other---but I'll bet that Django wouldn't have a problem with that!
Really enjoyed it!

I'm a big Django fan ... love his style. You did a terrific job recreating that late 30s/early40s sound he was so noted for. Excellent!

Best to you. Be safe ...

Alan

I can't speak to the lyrics, but I thought everything else was excellent.

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

Christian,

Terrific gypsy jazz tune. I’ve got a buddy who loves this kind of stuff—he’ll really enjoy hearing it. (The local theater by me does a gypsy jazz fest each year and my friend attends every minute of the three day event--he's a huge fan of the genre.)

Great work laying down the music. It sounds like I’m listening to a live band. Really well put together. And my, my: that accordion followed by the guitar solo. Excellent work!

Best regards,

Deej

Great Gypsy Jazz. A friend of ours back in the day played outstanding fiddle Gypsy Jazz and we came to love the genre.
This is a great example of it. Those RT's worked extremely well.

Outstanding,

J&B

Really nice - great sound, and composition.

Enjoyed the vocal and the song, which had excellent instrumental choices.

Hello Chris37,

Composition very well done. Each instrument is in its place, with a well-written poetry. It's all good.

Kindly regard

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
