Ooh Ya Ya

Hi Folks,

This song was inspired by my first visit to New Orleans. After a night of street Jazz we found a hole in the wall diner. The dish of the day was "Ooh Ya Ya". We asked the waitress what Ooh Ya Ya was and she just winked and said "all the boys want my Ooh Ya Ya".

This is a duet with Susan De Jong and myself and also features the wonderful sax of Carmel Courtney.

All backing instruments are custom designed Midi tracks.

From the album "US Odyssey"

Music and Lyrics by Nigel Spiers. Mastering by Ian mcallister.

Haha, I know that waitress. Another gem, Nigel. Well-written, and those vocals are at the top of their class. The sax is perfect. New Orleans is a very inspirational piece of the planet, and you were struck with a hot case of the taste, man.

Very entertaining song and beautifully sung. Fun set of lyrics.

Just curious are the custom designed midi tracks Band in a Box midi files (do you recall what ones) - if so what what process did you use to design them?

Love the groove, vocals, lyrics, and that sax lead. The mix is spot on.

A real toe tapper!

Loved it.

Hi Peter,

Unfortunately - it was a long time ago I did the original writing and recording of the backing tracks and did not take any notes. I seem to remember using some Bob Notes Norton Midi tracks as the basis and then did a lot of editing in BIAB and my DAW.

Best Regards
Nigel

Oh Nigel, terrific tune. It's a shame you don't remember the particulars as far as what tracks, style and whatnot you used on this one. It is always a help to everyone in this forum to know this things.
Cheers

Mike B.

Hi Mario,

Thanks for your lovely comments.

Yeah it certainly pays to have a mastering engineer give final mixes that professional touch. In this case he asked for separate stems for each vocalist, band and soloist.

Best Regards
Nigel
