Jazzing up pop then.
I'll leave that to those intent on turning today's pop into tomorrows standard book.

Jazz used to be pop music.

Yep it did.
Eventually the sort of stuff in the video, (Here's a wonderful pop tune. How about I replace the directness & simplicity with obscure voicings, obdurate variations and talk about shell chords?"), moved it from pop to a different demographic or, worse, wallpaper music for restaurants.

Unfortunately, Byron, I don't accept blessings from friends, family, frocked men or furinurz.
Jazz Standard books take old, classics, even jazz songs and make them "jazzier". It is an entire vocabulary and minimum requirement for those that are interested. It's also a launching pad for many more exploratory performers and performances but whilst BIAB/PG Music hold it dear it's no longer POPular in the wider sense. I like my old Ella, Bird, and Armstrong albums but I'm not into the from in any useful way beyond it's former pop glories.
Now, I know that dissent is hard to swallow particularly for one who likes to stand on the outside but but as a consenting, dissenting adult I'm usually allowed to have a vague colostomy bag of thoughts that form an opinion.

I think that the most important statement in this entire video was "Music is not about rules".


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.

Frankly, I think pop music could use quite a bit of jazzing up.

Hmmmm. Went back to this again.

Let me see, I played that ColdPlay song Clocks he referenced about 1,888,965,976,654,112,345,897,332,777 times when it first came out.

Is he making sense here?

Maybe? I think???

Yeah, I guess he is.

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."
