Eric, this was a fantastic listen. It reminded me jazz from the 60's.

This does have a real live feel. Super job on the mix. Great job on that lead. The guitar's tone is nice and brought the song into today's world. It you had used a more mellow tone like maybe Wes Montgomery or Johnny Smith the song would have stayed in the 60's. I'm not complaining just making an observation.

This is a fantastic song.

This song had a really great feel to it which I really appreciate, and I especially liked the RealTrack arrangement usage as well. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Eric,

Very nice throughout - both the Sax and your Guitar are very tasty. Your Guitar work sounds like my hero Carlos Santana playing Jazz - wonderful.

Best Regards
Nigel

I kept waiting for you to come in...all tease for the 1st two minutes Eric!
The song made more sense when you started playing... the sax was nice but wasn't "interesting".
You playing, tone & choices make your guitar work interesting.

Eric,

that's a really cool one - closed my eays and was immediately taken back to that old smokey jazz club I used to go to .. ah ... 45 years ago.

Really enjoyable and so well-done!

Love it.

Cheers,

Stefan

Eric,
Smooth tune. Nice, laid back guitar. Now you need to add some smoky, free flowing female vocals to it smile Good mix.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Sounds great Eric, as per usual.

I agree with Ray, I think you should have brought the guitar in sooner, or maybe even started off with the guitar.

Nothing wrong with the sax guy, but I dig your playing more.

Enjoyed it all. Great playing as always

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
