I know that when you three get together I'm in for a real treat! Now to add to Janice's outstanding vocals, Bud's lyrics and production, and Peter's fantastic guitar chops you all added the perfect video. You all are outstanding.

Loved it!

Janice, Bud & Peter,

It's a wonderful song with some melancholy.
The video is very nice. So professional.
Perfect for the song.
It's a very emotional building and landscape.
Guitar is tasteful and Janice's vocals shine as usual.
Enjoyed my listen and watch a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Misha.


We appreciate that very much Misha. Thanks for mentioning shooting and editing. I’ve had a decades long interest in photography but video clips are a new thing. Glad you liked it.

One of your very best - and that's saying something. Wow.

Can't wait to see the video for "Emerald". This song's in the same vein as "Emerald" - and boy does it work. And Janice's voice is getting better, better and better with each song - which I genuinely did not think was possible, given her incredible high standard anyway. We're truly spoilt to have such musicians on here.

Superb video, too. Please, never ever stop creating - it's miraculous, what you do. Thanks.

Hi Janice, Bud and Peter,

So nice to see Janice acting in this movie. I only think the house needs some repair.
And so sorry I am so late with my comment. Of course I have a lot of excuses, but still...

But let me say a few words on this beautiful song.
I can imagine you threw away those flowers, Janice. It's a bad thing what happened to you.
Leave that 'hometown' is my advise. The way you told this sad story is brilliant. And the band that helped you with it is also very, very good. Of course you are now used to get this kind of compliments, but these come from across the ocean and very sincere.

I saw some post to the latest song of Floyd. They said his song should be in a jukebox in some nice pub. Well, yours too!
If that's going to happen, I'll come to visit it!

Hans

Janice, Bud and Peter...this was extraordinary...the vocals are exquisite....and the style and arrangement were apropos to say the least and so well done...if I had a say and I don't the percussion didn't fit the piece IMO...it seemed a bit too busy and kept stealing my ear from the gorgeous song...I thought just a rim shot on the first part or a jazz brush kit wouldn't be as competitive in nature as the perc you have...just one opinion and it really doesn't count...but guys this is SO good and the video absolutely perfect...Wow!...Dan

Janice, Bud, Peter...

Once again, raising the bar with "as good as it gets".

A truly STUNNING mix. NOTHING out of place. Crisp, clean, clear, yet as Warm as it can get.

Janice's vocal is (as always) the highlight. She simply never misses.

Peter guitar work is wonderful.

A truly outstanding video. The best ever presented here. A great cohesive look to the entire video.
Camera work is excellent. Lip-syncing, too!!
Amazing that you were able to find a building with Peter's name AND "guitar". wink

LOVE how you got that bird to fly away in the last shot at JUST the right time! How'd you DO that??? smile

Stunning work all around. Looking forward to where you go from here...

The Mix? ACE!
Video...this makes me glad.
It's a sad story and song but the video is a triumph.
Almost out of nowhere comes a glimpse at another facet of the team that is Bud & Janice - something that gladdens me.
peter you did a superb job of matching and enhancing the mood.


It's always most gratifying to receive a review
that makes you feel like all the work was worthwhile.

And man, did this ever do that! And thanks for the opportunity for this facet to see the light of day!

Wow! That was something else.

Fantastic song both musically and lyrically. One of my favorite vocal performances from Janice.

You have an eye for the poignant images that mesh with the song. I found the video almost just as gripping as the song.

I like this one a lot. Janice's vocals are stellar, as always. Peter's great on the guitar. Nice melody and lyrics.

I'm a bit on the fence about the drums, but I'm sure if I listened a few more times, I'd come around. wink

Excellent work!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

You guys already know I really like this from seeing it over on FB.

First of all, a great song! Love the lyrics and the concept.

Janice is one of my favorite singers, ever, always a treat! And the super tasteful solo from Peter is perfect.

Great mix as usual, Bud!

Really enjoyed the video, love the stills you chose, and seeing Janice do her thing. Nice to see the shot of Peter also.

I gave it a "like" over there for what that's worth wink

Janice, Bud and company:
3 words for you folks...
Uh...Maze...Zing!
It has become commonplace to expect something professional sounding from you folks (kind of like a Muscle Shoals thing!) I mean, what a soulful and forlorn render. But to have a video too? As someone who often feels as if he has been banned from his hometown, this song hit kind of a tender spot. As you were singing I could see some of the same images in my head that you had in the video. Old derelict buildings that were once bustling hubs of activity and places that held such fond memories now run down and dilapidated. Or even worse, demolished and turned into a parking lot.
Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the listen...and watch.

Thanks Vic! We’re good with drums - a similar groove to what Janice sometimes plays on her cajon.

Thanks Deej. At 75 this branching out thing can be a struggle but having a younger and very young at heart wife helps!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

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.
