I'm not really fond of jazz, but I had done this Rita Reys' cover with my own BIAB arrangement.
I couldn't post it of course, because it's a cover.
I wondered if I could do something like it myself.
So I cut all the chords into individual pieces, threw them in a big bowl, shook it up and let the chords fall down on the table. Then I put one after the other, and fed them to BIAB.
Well, BIAB turned it into a completely new song!
When I heard it, the lyrics were just there, when I tried to sing a melody.
It's about one of my frustrations, especially when I sing with Rob.
You might even call it "an alto's lament" .
But I didn't, I called it

LOW

Don't take it too serious.

If you're curious about the Rita Reys' cover:
You can find it

As far as I know, this was her only Dutch song.
In the end it says:
"Dedicated to my mother who always dreamt of living on Scheveningen boulevard. The dream remained."
My mother is in the video, which shows how the spa Scheveningen changed during the 20th century.

This is the funnest video I've seen in a while, and I tend to avoid music videos, so I'm very glad I didn't miss this!

Thanks Mark!
I always pay a lot of attention to our videos, so I'm glad someone who doesn't like music videos very much, likes this one. smile

Hi Anne-Marie,

Now I understand better why you complained about Rob all the time, when we were working on our song (comes in the forum around the half of April) ;-)

On YouTube I wrote "Mooi low is ook heel mooi" (Nice 'low' is very nice too) and that's a fact, while listening to your funny Rita Reys 'imitation'! In real it is no imitation, it's your own song.
Conclusion: Very nice vocals, funny lyrics, good band.

I once saw Rita and her husband (Pim) perform in the Hague on the famous North sea Jazz festival. And Oscar Peterson too. So, a long time ago.
Nice memory

Nog een mooie zondag,
Hans

Great video! Hey, Rob, I like it when the guy sings the high part, too. hehe This is such a fun song. Seems I've come to take your wonderful mastering for granted. I kept waiting for the high harmony and was not disappointed. Anne-Marie, your voice is perfect.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Definitely fun and funny.
The BIAB band is perfect.
The scat parts are cool and the doo doo to doing it is ace!
The harmonized section was another treat.


Cheers

Hi Anne- Marie.

Wow! This is exquisite.

The little animation below gives you a glimpse into what was happening inside my mind as I listened. Fred Astaire and partner were tapping and whirling around all over the place.



This song of yours is an amazing toe-tapper that fits perfectly into the Tin Pan Alley days of the 1930s. In fact, the first song that sprang to mind when your singing started was George Gershwin's and DuBose Heyward's "I've Got Plenty Of Nothin'".

As soon as your song stopped, I went to Youtube and found the below clip of Frank Sinatra singing the 1934 Gershwin/Heyward song. If you have a listen, you can easily hear just how very well you have captured the 1930s jazz feel.



Bravo!

What you have done is outstanding smile

All the best,
Noel

P.S. I didn't watch your video on my first listen because I like to close my eyes and listen with 100% attention. I did go back and watch your video, though. Wow! This is brilliant, too. Your editing is perfect! You had me laughing out loud at those little penguins.
