Hello fellow BIABers! Continue to hear excellent tunes on the forum........great in variety, superb in quality! This is a song about obsession. Strictly fictional but I have been known to become obsessed myself! Would love to hear what you think. Take care all and stay safe. Greg

Imaginary Dance


He sees her silhouette
The glow of her cigarette
It’s a captivating sight
In the wee hours of the night

He can’t make out her face
Her movements show such grace
And too quickly she is gone
But the memory lingers on

He dreams of a meeting face to face
No words but just a passionate embrace
He’s entangled in this sweet romance
This imaginary dance

He knows not where she goes
Beyond the street light’s glow
He could call to her but then
Would she ever come again?

So he remains unknown
Silent and alone
In the shadows of his room
In the blanket of his gloom

He finds himself sleeping through the days
An alcoholic, deep hypnotic haze
Nights speckled with intense romance
In this imaginary dance

The players

Hi Greg...

I'm convinced that the sub-genre of Lounge Jazz was created because somehow it was known you'd be coming around someday to compose and sing in it. Wonderful lyric, great backing tracks, and that vocal magic you always share with us. Listening to you sing is a treat unto itself. And then there's the song itself. Music is a better world to live in because of your talent in every aspect of the craft. I think that sums it up for now ... although there are a hundred more accolades I could drop here.

Wishing you the very best. Take care and be safe ...

Alan

Once again, I hit the play button with unreasonably high expectations, and you did not disappoint! laugh

Everything in the song works to build a dreamy, musical spell. Your voice and the soprano sax are particular standouts.

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

Man, when that soprano came in I sat a little straighter. You already know I'm one of your biggest fans, Greg. Yeah, I'd buy a ticket to hear you at any venue. Another wonderful write and a clean production. [Please send me one of your failures so I can be sure you're really human. smile ] You are very consistent with outstanding quality --an A&R guys dream.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Greg,

Gorgeous. As always.

Beautiful melody. A solid (somewhat creepy smile ) lyric...

Super tracks and a good mix. Stellar vocal - so smooth.

A pleasure to listen. You should be a star, buddy.

Killer.

Lounge jazz at its absolute best! Your vocal is outstanding and your backing tracks fit like a glove! Plus you mix is spot on.

I love lounge jazz and you really hit the nail on the head with this one.

I think this is your best to date.

Perfect package, mix and instrumentation are flawless, the sax is the icing on the cake. Your soft voice interprets the hazy melancholy in the lyric in a delicate hypnotizing way.

Crooner time! A mashup of a piano bar sound with Linda Ronstadt and Nelson Riddle.

Classy and sophisticated in write, vocals and arrangement.

You and the sax stole the show!

Like J&B said classy & sophisticated. Lovely vocal(as expected) and a smooth backing band to match the delivery.

Top notch as usual.

Darker than usual for you, this track oozes mood. Your voice is always the feature attraction but that sax gave you a run for your money. Superb, as always.

A fine tune. The lyrics really paint a picture and story. That's hard to do. Lovely vocals. I love the melody, especially the hook line. And the band is superb. Good job.

Man you have become the absolute top crooner of the forum Greg IMO! Your vocals are always fabulous! What a lovely tune! You must have really been going with some deep inspiration on this one! Super all the way through! Kind of a Christopher Cross thing going on here with that sax part! Thanks, T

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
