Reaching across the chasm..

GLORYLAND

------------------------------
"Gloryland"

I'm set to see you soon in Gloryland.
I'll bet you know I'm on my way;
Meet me at the golden door.
So when I climb that stair
You're there.

You led me to the road to Gloryland.
You said it would be hard--that's true;
Now I know I'm nearly home.
All of the dizzy twists and turns
Are gone.

You walked the final path
Right beside me;
I watched you make your way
so fearlessly;
Now I'm
About to climb--
I'm out of time.

They say it's always warm in Gloryland.
And never any pain at all.
Hope you'll take my hand my friend.
When I finally reach the end,
in Gloryland.

I agree with Greg. Excellent use of those strings and the flute!

Your arrangement is just perfect. The mix is spot on.

To nit pick I think you could use a little less vibrato on the flue during the ending; it sounds like it is going out of tune. But that is just me and others may not agree and it didn't change my opinion of the song.

Excellent song.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Sadly sweet. This is a wonderful song, TM! It says so much, and says it in a gently lifting way. It ends up being VERY uplifting, very promising, and can only bring a smile. Very well done!


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hello Tano Music,

Very soft melody, with a tone of voice that fits perfectly into your orchestration even if your voice seems a little too forward compared to the orchestra. I really liked the lyrics and everything is very pleasant to listen to. Well done.

Kindly regard

Nice laid back piece - very easy on the ear, and melodic. Well arranged and sung.

Enjoyed the listen.

Tano,

First off, lover the Soundcloud album cover! Second, nice throwback sound to this tune—real thirties or forties feel. Crooner material for sure. Some really cool melodic changes throughout. The vocal sits pretty nice in the mix for me—and, yeah, that flute Midi worked quite well. Good work on this!

Best regards,

Deej

Hi Tano ...

I fully agree with all that's been said. Beautiful music, arrangement and your vocal is really nice. I do agree it might be a bit forward in the mix. Nonetheless, this is a terrific song ... in construction, arrangement, and delivery.

Truly a lovely listen. Wishing you the very best. Take care and be safe ...

Sad indeed and well done. We always enjoy your bossas.

This reminded us of the credits rolling after a sad 60's movie.

Your vocal is very, very emotive and that nails the whole vibe.

Excellent band too,

Be safe.

Great jazzy retro vibe.
Instrument selection all works well.
Lyrics fir well.

About the vocal, it might be a bit forward but, to me, it could use some a cut in the low end. Maybe just slap on a high-pass filter around 100 k.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

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."
