I like it! Really beautiful and laid-back. Yes, I'd chat up a lady with this music playing, for sure :-) That vibraphone ... icing on the cake. Excellent job! :-)

Perfect jazz lounge music. That is one of my favorite genres and you really nailed it.

Great work

theres a knock at the door. he opens it, and a beautifull vision appears dressed in a sophisticated gown.. both the man and the woman smile....
knowingly. about the nice evening that lies ahead.

just such a vision.

bluage, as Mario said, I love this genre and you nailed it! The tune flows exquisitely and you did a super job bringing different instruments in and out on the solos! Enjoyed it! Thanks, Torrey

After the opening 2 bars my wife would look at me and I knew it was time to dance. HAHAHA How weird was that. As I typed that first sentence, Barb walked by the open studio door. She stopped and gave me that look. After the passed several weeks of caring for her parents, it was the perfect moment. Thank you guys. So I had to spin in again (with headphones) to hear all the wonderful ingredients you guys wrote for that magic moment. Just perfect guys.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Anytime any user's forum member tells me that he/she was inspired by the music to get up and dance, has made my day. 99% of the reason why I compose music is for that reason. Thank you for responding to the piece in such a joyful way.

Nice, flows well and things have their own spot in the mix.
The FX on the "vibes" seem to muddy things a little bit as the overtones carry into the next note - a bit like playing a busy melody on a piano with the sustain pedal leaving everything to decay naturally.
Very nice piece.


Cheers

Bluage & Icelander

Sweet tune! Excellent job on vibraphone. Good, clear mix. Listens very well. A bit short smile
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Hello, 'rayc'...

The vibes track was recorded by my collaborator, 'Icelander'. I don't know if he applied any FX to it.

Regardless, I'm pleased that the piece appealed to you. Thank you very much for taking the time to listen to it.

Hello, 'Rustyspoon#'...

Yes, I agree that 'Icelander' performed the vibes track so well. It's what caused me to answer his call for a collaborator.

You're right, it's a short piece. Wetted your appetite for more, perhaps?

Thank you for auditioning the piece and also for your comment.

I agree with you about the sax. P.J. Perry's performance sounded like he improvised it especially for our composition.

Thanks for hearing it!

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
