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

Avant garde either works for us or it doesn't -- not a lot of middle ground and, man,
this one was cool. A cool dude indeed smile

Sittin' in a small club listening to this quartet would be fabulous!

Well done and love the crowd ambiance.

Hi Mike,

Enjoyed this track.

What is the instrument in the left hand speaker with a "tonk" sound?

Best Regards
Nigel

Sorry guys for the late response. Thank you all for the comments, I was otherwise busy and been away from the forum for a little bit.
Nigel, the "tonk" sound is an almost muted vibes. Instead of a piano I chose a vibe patch for this.
Thanks again

Mike B.

Hi Mike B.,

Well, allow us to enjoy it... maybe it is "free" jazz... but it works really well in this case. And you have made a good mix!

Thanks a lot for sharing!
Will

Avant garde jazz from the cool era of jazz.

Mike you nailed it.

Jazz at its best!

Hi Cubanpete,

Very nice arrangement on a composition rich in variations. The sax and flute playing are great. You managed to bring us into your musical universe. I appreciated.

Kindly regard

Ok, that last one was my attempt at humor. Every time I see a new post from Cubanpete I smile, knowing that when I push the play button I'm in for a musical treat. I remember back in the 70s hearing a free-jazz album called "The Ear Of The Behearer" and instantly knew my ears were not right for it. This, on the other hand, keeps me smiling. Thanks, Mike.

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
