This is a chromatic harmonica instrumental. I played a Hohner CX12 and used the bossafred RealStyle for the backing band. It's short, 2:26.

TM,

Really well done.

The BIAB jazz tracks background are excellent (they do that SO well). Nicely mixed.

Super job on the Chromatic.
That's a lot more work than a "regular" harp. I know - I've had one for years (decades) - and have never enjoyed playing it.

Nice!

Smooth... and the "voice" of your harp tells an appropriately sad but tuneful story.
Hats off to you for getting to such a high level with the chromatic ( like Floyd I gave up long ago).
Cool and good.

If I had a drink and a lady near by, I'd put down the drink and dance with the lady.
Well done.

Hey, man, I dig the title and your performance on that mouth organ is memorable, romantic, and as sensuous as a warm, sweet breath in your ear. The backing tracks were the ideal accompaniment for the melody, too. It's bossa nova on a lush, elegant, and nostalgic tip.

Nice job on the chromatic! I also have one here someplace, very difficult instrument compared to a regular harp.

Good melody and tone, enjoyed.

Very nice. Nice harmonica blowing. Floating down a slow moving river on a lazy southern summer afternoon. Good use of the band too.

Love the sound of a well played harp. Cool backtrack as well.

Hello TuneMonger,

It's a real pleasure this harmonica played on a Biab realtrack. You used and personalized it to perfection.

Most excellent -- can't say we've heard a harmonica based Bossa before smile

Great concept and, man, that melodic playing nailed a great jazz groove with the band.

Most enjoyable!

BTW, Janice's daddy played a chromatic harp.

A very nice harmonica tone - reminds me of the player who did the interludes on The Goon Show.

Was in intended to be Brazil or the uncommon surname Brasil?

Hi TuneMonger,

I was fantasizing what words one could sing on this song instead of this harmonica. I came to the conclusion I prefer your harmonica.
The song creates a nice ambiance, something like CaptainMoto wrote...
There is only oneserious problem I have to mention here; it is too short!

Have a nice day,
Hans

I really liked this piece, let me count the ways - Bossa, smooth and jazzy, really sweet textured harmonica, rich and nuanced backing track, and performed with style and verve. Yep - top marks on this one!

Great stuff - I could listen to this all day.

Hi Bob,

This is superb!

I love that chromatic harmonic sound. You've got the knack! My dad used to play harmonica and listening to you took me back years to my childhood.

Your melody is spectacular. You've captured the essence of bossanova very skillfully. My only suggestion is that if you ever re-visit this song, please make it longer! The beautiful music was over with way too soon.

I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
Noel

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
