Secret Interlude

I am a little out of my comfort zone again. I couldn't think of anything interesting to say so I just let BiaB pick a title for me, so here goes nothing!

BiaB style - Bossa Nova Style
Tempo = 120

Drums = RealDrums - bossaBrushes
Bass - Ample Bass - preset - Jazz Bass
EP = Velvet - preset - 56 MKI vintage phase
Guitar - Kontakt - Band - preset - nylon string guitar
Strings 1 - Kontakt - Solid State Strings
Strings2 - strings1 down an octave - Kontakt - String Boutique - presets Deep strings and dark strings.

I am playing the nylon string guitar lead and via my wind controller the tenor sax (Swan Tenor sax) and trumpet (Kontakt - Chapman trumpet).

FX = Wave's bass rider on the bass track.
Raum reverb on all but the bass and drum tracks.

Very different Mario. Cool chord progressions. Love that windcontroller. Guitar was very cool as well.

For being out of your comfort zone, you've certainly produced some comfortable, easy listening music.

Melodic and mellow. The twinned brass were a nice touch. smile

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

There is something about a bossa groove that has always captivated us.

This is most cool...love the nylon pickin' and the horns. You are one versatile musican!

BiaB is very creative, too, huh? Secret Interlude seems to fit this wonderful composition perfectly. Mario, you seem quite comfortable to my ears. The melody and horn harmony is superb. That guitar is very tasteful and so well played. Very enjoyable for this sunny Saturday morning, and it will surely translate well into the night.

Your composition has that 'rainy day' feel blended with a melodic warmth and rhythmic coolness that is characteristic of so many fine bossa nova tunes. The string arrangement provides a dreamy, elegant background for your instrumental performances. Everything comes together wonderfully.

I said slightly out of my comfort zone as our wedding band did play a couple of bossa novas, I just never tackled the whole thing by myself.

Thanx for those nice comments.
