Face Fade Café

This is an experimental jazz track.
The title comes from the chord progression or, more accurately, the chord progression is derived from the title.

F-A-C-E-
F-A-D-E-
C-A-F-E

BIAB Style: CAPRI.STY

3476:Bass, Acoustic, JazzBluesNeilAB Sw 140 (Reverb 40)
Real Drums+JazzBrushes (Reverb 40)
3480:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm JazzBluesCompOlly SW 140 (Reverb 40)
3482:Sax, Alto, Soloist JazzBluesPJ Sw 140 (Reverb 60)

Added 455:Piano, Acoustic, Soloist Jazz Sw 140 (Bluesy) (Reverb 60)

A mere one minute and twelve seconds, this track is short (it is rumored that faces fade fast in this particular café).

Ghostgum, you should experiment more often.

This sounds great.

Nice RTs and mix.

But it is a tad short whistle


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Night little package of sound.

Re: experiment: Any organic source of structured material can probably be turned into good music, even if it's a Scrabble board.

That was quite a clever idea put into action! The idea gives it a rather unique twist and sounds interesting to me! Thanks, Torrey

I borrowed the idea from a story about my wife's grandfather, William Cade, a noted violinist and the first conductor of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. A friend and admirer of his composed a musical piece for violin and viola based principally on the notes C A D E.

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

An interesting combination.

Fun to listen to. Discordant and not discordant in many ways.

The Jazz Brushes fitted perfectly.

You know me: brevity, simplicity, and an aversion to mindless repetition. wink

Thanks for the review.

Hi Ghostgum,

The rendering of the brass and the piano is very pleasant. Nice mix. Too bad it's so short. We will ask for more.

Best regard

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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."
