Hi All,

After a break from the forum over the holiday period, this
is the first offering from me and Eddie this year.
It's another blues, but not in the traditional format - more
jazz based and with influences from JJ Cale and Robert Cray.
Eddie is on lead vocal and I'm responsible for the BVs, guitars and keys.
The OOHs and Sax are RTs.
The minimal lyrics are mainly Eddie with a few lines from me.

GONE
Every night I'm wide awake pacing the floor
Hoping you'll come walking back through the door
I listen close to hear your key in the lock
But all I hear is the tick, tick, tick of the clock
Soon it'll be too late
To put it right, to slow the pace
I was wrong, all along
And it all adds up to you
Being gone.

As ever, we're just SO pleased if anyone has the time to give it a listen.
Many thanks,
ROG

Hi Rog,

Superb guitar playing that goes well with the lyrics. I like this arrangement with the sax which has its place and goes perfectly with guitar playing. Very pleasant composition.

ROG,

Terrific overall sound. Excellent combination of tracks. SWEEEET guitars throughout - love the Cray influence!

The BGVs are really tasty. Nice sax.

Excellent mix.

That was tasty in so many ways.

Nice mix. I like so may things about this..... guitar tone, selection of the instruments, simplicity of the lyrics, and that it's kind of a blues tune. Nice job on the vox too.

Love that sweet guitar, super tone and chops.

I really liked everything about this one, the backing tracks, vocals, lyrics, mix etc.

You have raised the bar quite high with this one.

IMHO your best to date.

Nice! I can hear the Robert Cray influence in there, I've listened to a lot of his music over the years, seen him a couple of times too.

Guitar is perfect, vocals sound great too.

Really well done, enjoyed!

That's a really good pop groove you've got happening in the verses Rog! The vocals and melody are catchy! That horn is an excellent choice! Guitars are beautiful! Top shelf work for sure! T

Really cool. personally I'd have preferred a longer guitar solo that the sax part but that's just pp.
The drum sounds a little distant - as in the next room.
Well done.


Cheers

Enjoyed the melancholy of the story.
Familiar sounding but tasty chord progression.
Good vocals and the backing vocals add a new dimension.
The sax is a great choice and together with the beautiful sounding guitars create very nice band.

ROG & Eddie ...

This is a very sophisticated Blues with slight Pop and Latin elements. It has just enough Latin influence I could hear Santana taking a run on this one as he fronted Cray's band. Well conceived and mixed. Everything sits kust right in the mix. This is such a cool tune! A tip of the hat to both of you. A wonderful collab!

Wishing both of you a wonderful 2021.

We can definitely hear the JJ Cale and Robert Cray influence - nice. And from a couple of folks who have, indeed, listened to them at length.

The smooth lead and background vocals nail the vibe!

The guitars are simply standout and, man, that sax is tremendous.

The laid back groove had Janice swaying in the chair ... always a sign of a great groove! smile

Ya'll done good!

Yep. We done good!


I smashed the hell out of my car today. When the cops came I told him "Officer, that guy was BOTH texting and drinking a beer." The cop said "Sir, he has every right to do that. I mean, it's HIS living room..."

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."
