    Jabb fast swing

    I wanted to try a fast swinging tune, didn't have the patience to write a full arrangement though, just the head, trumpet solo, head again. It is called "Sandro's Sindrome", hope you like it.

    happy new year to everybody

    Another great tune Roberto. The trumpet solo was excellent. Did you use the full Kontakt player for tweaking?

    Roberto!

    Very nice arrangement! I really like your part writing, and got an extra smile as the drummer "answered" the trumpet soloist.

    Happy New Year!

    Dan, thank you for listening

    Jim, it had become a commonplace years ago that whenever the soloist played a repeated staccato like this the rhythm section would answer, it is fun to hear it from samples , thank you for your words

    Roberto,

    A GREAT performance! I love tunes/solos where a melodic fragment is displaced & supports the harmony...kind of like Bill Evans...that's the highest compliment I can give!

    Did you do the entire performance by hand? Especially the drum part--how did you accomplish that??

    Again...BRAVO!

    Wow Roberto you never cease to amaze me.

    These kind of fast hard-swinging tunes are one of the toughest challenges for any programmer, but you have captured that sense of group interplay very well with this piece.

    The piece is really great, the solo is exciting, and the horn arranging is wonderfully done.

    The drums are Outstanding, and the balance of the individual drums are perfectly realised to make a satisfyng whole. I especially liked the ride work, very Tony Williams in style, swinging but unpredictable.

    Do you ever use CC21 (Length) on the bass parts.?
    Although it might not be needed very much on such a fast tune, I have found changing this in a few random spots can help the feel from becoming too static.

    Can you share with us a little how you get such great drum tracks. ?
    How many passes you make to get a finished drum part.?
    Do you use any quantisation on the drum parts.?

    Bravo. !!!

    regards Joe

    You know, Roberto, you never fail to just plain blow
    my socks off.

    BRAVO!

    Be prepared for a knock on your door. I am coming over to
    your house to look in your cellar. I think you have a real
    orchestra, and a damned good one, held captive down there.
    This cannot possibly be coming out of a box full of wires... lol!

    This is incredibly good work, my friend. Did I mention...

    BRAVO!

    Wow.

    Excuse me while I go put my eyebrows back on.

    Roberto,

    You really know how to swing the house! Amazing work. You have become quite the JABBmeister.

    I would be thrilled if "Sandro's Sindrome" can be included on the JABB web page and demoed at the International Jazz Conference.

    Happy New Years!

    Gary

    PS - It would be interesting to see what etLux looks like without those bushy eyebrows.
