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.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
