Smokey Lounges

Its 1960. You are in a jazz lounge with your sweetheart. You can hardly see her through all of the cigarette smoke. You were just waiting for a song like this so you could cuddle up and dance with her.

BiaB style = -JAZ_60 STY Jazz at T60 - slow jazz.
The tracks are verbatim. All I did was to choose the sounds

Bass = Ample Bass - Upright
Piano = Keystone Classic - Bright EP
Guitar = Kontakt - Band - Jazz Guitar
Drums = Steven Slate SSD-5 - FX - Waves CLA Drums
Me = Swam Tenor Sax played via my wind controller - FX - Raum Reverb

As always constructive criticism welcomed.


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.

Sets the mood perfectly. Very easy on the ear. Nice sax.


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

I got a chuckle out of your intro to the song rewrite up. My first thoughts were to Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone. Very cool tune. Sax was excellent.

I really dig your lovely description--sets up the song so nicely. Beautiful song. Great tune. Love your sax playing. Do you use different fingerings on your wind controller from instrument to instrument? Or do you use the same fingerings regardless of the virtual instrument?

The description you provided definitely sets the tone for the song and what to expect. Even though I knew what to expect the song still blew me away. Thanks for sharing!


Cheers,

Brian, Scott, Todd, Janice and Bud, Peter, Angelomusic, Ember, and Ed Thanx for taking the time to listen and comment. I greatly appreciate it.

Todd, I have my EWI-USB wind controller set up for a trumpet like fingering, called EVI. There are several fingerings you can set that unit to such as sax and flute. Since I used to play French horn and trumpet I use the EVI setting for everything I do with the with the EWI-USB.

Hello MarioD,

You are good at creating intimate atmospheres. It's relaxing and well done. By closing my eyes, I imagine the setting and the people. The sax is well used and the whole is really nice.

Kindly regard

Haha. Sooo cool, Mario. I wish I didn't read your introduction above before pressing Play because it would've been cool to give YOU my thoughts about the setting. BUT as soon I heard the sax, I knew we were on the same history page. Man, seriously, I felt like looking over at her and taking her hand as I stood. Even better, SHE knew that was the song, too.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Man, that sax sounds great! I would never have guessed it wasn't the real thing.

Great track, Mario!

You, sir, have talent to burn. And I mean it ... to burn. Wanna lend me some of it? ;-) Seriously, though ... wow. I am a child of the eighties, but my word ... if I wanted to cuddle up with the love of my life in a smoky jazz club, this would be the perfect song for it - and I mean it :-) I can just see the club as I listen. The sax playing is spot on, too.

I'll just say this: whenever I get time to come to this forum these days, yours is one of the very first names I look out for. You NEVER disappoint. Bravo.

Great, felt like I was watching a classic noir film and grooving on the soundtrack.

Yeah, really nice mood piece. I always enjoy your work, esp because of the wind-instrument orientation you have--it allows you to go beyond what the RT's offer--wish I had that playing skill set. Thanks for posting!

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."
