    Bluesette - a swedish tune with JABB - mp3

    Greetings from Sweden,
    and a Happy New Year to everyone!

    I'm an absolute newbie in "jabbing", I know...
    but here is my first attempt to make one of my arrangements 'sing' via JABB.
    It is an arrangement made for a local trombone quartet with additonal playing on my electric piano and bass.

    Nice, nice job on this, Engson.

    You've really gotten a smooth, rich sound out of this! Those 'bones are really sweet... very solid arranging for trombone choir, there.

    If this is your first shot at JABB, I can't wait to hear more!

    It's too slow...slow...slow!

    I have heard and/or performed this old Toots Thielemans jazz standard hundreds of times, but never this slow. It needs to MOVE! At least I think that Americans are used to hearing it at a much faster tempo. In 3/4 time, it should move along at around 180 bpm, in my opinion. That's three beats or one measure per second!

    Otherwise, you did a good job. Thanks for posting this and keep up the fine work.

    Engson, this is a slower tempo than the norm, but I like it.

    You have obviously arranged it to be played this speed with very idiomatic phrasing and backings.

    I enjoy hearing things done differently and this is good.

    Thanks for listening and for your comments!
    I think JABB is a great tool and I'm trying to learn to use it.
    Maybe I dare to post another tune later... it's another slow swedish ballad.

    About the tempo for Bluesette, I guess I've had an old recording with Mr Thielemans on the harmonica in mind when doing this arrangement. I just checked that tempo, which is even slower (around 120 bpm).
    I'll try to find another recording to compare with.

    Thanks again for your suggestions and encouragement!

    I'm not familiar with this tune--so the tempo seemed fine to me.
    Sounds good!

    I would have to weigh in strongly with the tempo Engson took this at. It's consistent with the gentler, more reflective take of the arrangement, to me. If you just whack this chart up to 180, I don't think it would work nearly as well.

    As is, it's a nice closing-time, dim-the-lights, hug-your-honey dance floor number.

    I'm out of my element here - but wanted to stop by and say I enjoyed this piece. Sounded pretty authentic to me.
