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.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
