"She Doesn't Play That Game"-Original-Sonar X3

Post by voclizr » Wed Feb 01, 2017 8:39 pm

Here's another one.

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_so ... D=13519167

Jazz quartet sounding. Just a piano (EZ Keys), Acoustic bass (Trilian Bass Module), Drums (EZ Drummer2) a single vocal and ending with a Flugelhorn (JABB 3). I wanted it to sound like a jazz quartet in a smokey nightclub somewhere.

Enjoy.

:D

Well John if you wanted it to sound like a Jazz quartet you hit the nail on the head! On my headphones the mix sounds perfect. What I like about your songs are that although you use a lot of programs it all sounds very "human". I think you hit all the notes in your voice as well. So the flugelhorn is a program a well?

Thanks, Glenn. Yes. It's from Garritan's Jazz & Big Band ver.3

Success!

It did sound like a jazz quartet and I did enjoy it.

Nice mix. It moved along smartly. Good lyrics that seemed to keep unwinding as the song progressed. That's hard to do.

You've nailed this John :)

I like the lyrics and how they are delivered. Lovely swing feel and nice work on the bass.

Cheers

Thanks, Sean & Dick. I wasn't too happy with the vocal sound at first, but I've managed to clean it up some.

Did I not comment on this? You are very good at putting a jazzy piece together, very well done and good vocals too. Excellent attention to detail in the arrangement!

You had me at smokey night club. Although I def wouldn't wanna be near any cigarette smoke.
Very cool song, John. You have a marvelous jazzy style and an amazing knack for arrangements and chord progressions. That always impressed me. I would def want to see a chart for this. And I'm not talking about the pc midi score.
Sweet flugel there at the end. Really gave the tune a nice nightcap. :applause:

Thanks green & Marc :D
I guess I shouldn't have said "smokey" night club as most states have those types of venues smoke free now. ;)

I listened again and it totally reminds of something one would hear in a Broadway musical. Very cool. Needs a nice smooth electric hollow body jazz guitar. :guitar: ;)

I disagree. I wanted this tune to sound very simplistic that could be done by a small combo. To add anymore than what it has would be overproduction. ;)

Well, artistic license is a given. But I still wouldn't mind a go at it. Been playing tons w/the newly setup ES135.
