This is "Age Is Just A Number," with vocals by Max McPherson:

https://soundcloud.com/user-61562267/age-is-just-a-number

Age Is Just A Number

I've done a lotta livin'
There's more to come,
Ain't gonna sit around,
Turn into a bum,
'Cause Age Is Just A Number,
Ain't gonna let it slow me down.

I'll go outside,
And walk in the park,
If the weather ain't bad,
I'll stay out until dark,
'Cause Age Is Just A Number,
Ain't gonna let it slow me down.

I've done so much, but I ain't done yet,
I'll do it all, so I'll have no regrets,
Still so much, I wanna see,
I'll keep goin' 'til a hundred-and-three...

Go out for a meal,
Meet up with the guys,
Gonna get out there,
And socialize,
Cause Age Is Just A Number,
Ain't gonna let it slow me down.

[Clarinet, trombone, alto sax and trumpet solos over verse & chorus chords]

I'll play piano, and banjo too,
Show those young'uns,
A thing or two,
'Cause Age Is Just A Number,
Ain't gonna slow me down.

Age Is Just A Number,
Ain't gonna let it slow me down.

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

Splendid!! Welcome to the forum, Bob. Right after clicking on the link I saw the pic and knew I was going to love this one.

YEP!! Terrific write. Man, I really like the style of this one. Cool arrangement and the lyrics are perfect. Max McPherson is an excellent choice. A very strong vocal. Love the NOLA feel thta would play well in a club on 51st Street. Keep 'em coming, Bob.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Great song, vocals and mix. I really liked the choice of instrumentation. The 2nd fun song I've heard on the forum today.


Some favourite Waoist Adages:
#1: Play on the Way.
#17: Ask not for whom the flower blooms, it blooms for you.
#69: Bring consciousness to it.
#74: On the road to effortlessness, effort must be made.
#105: Be Love Now, the rest will come on its own.

Good song & performances.
My only nit would be the somewhat abrupt trombone...the other solos seem to slide into their slots...a tiny bit of volume envelope automation on the beginning of it would make it sit beautifully.


Cheers

I'll check into volume envelope automation, I'm not familiar with that.

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."
