Chris, you did a fantastic job on this jazz song. PGMusic should showcase this when they advertise as it highlights the jazz side of BiaB.

Freelance jazz at its best.

Fantastic use of RTs!

Thanks Marty, Mario and Mike,
I've voluntarily lightened the rythm section to make the most of each track.

Christian,

Terrific work on this . . that trumpet solo running throughout is so sweet. Makes you really appreciate the wonder that is BIAB . . . it sounds so real and spontaneous (blending so well into the alto sax). Great stuff!!!

Kindest regards,

Deej

Janice said this makes her want to watch the documentary on the Newport Jazz Festival again!

You did a masterful job with those BiaB tracks creating a great live feel of a fine band.

Enjoyed it!

Dear 'Chris37'...

It may have been composed in a minor key, but it swings in a major way! Your chord choices allow the Real Track instruments to blow such sophisticated lines that the musicians sound as though as they had to rehearse the piece to get such a sharp, sinuous sound out of it. The arrangement is tight and 'free'-feeling. I could imagine that I'm spinning a record made by the Blue Note label on a turntable. This is an excellent, skillfully composed jazz composition!

Cette musique de jazz sonne merveilleusement bien. C'était un très bon travail. Cela me rappelle aussi la France qui me manque beaucoup.

This jazz instrumental is also the starting point of a french song.
Patrick Fournerat has written the lyrics and he sings.
