Description : This one's a real international project featuring the exceptional talent from Janis71 (France) - vocals, Mr.Funktastic (U.S) - brass, Neddings (Netherlands) - piano, and of course us, Franco (Italy) - guitar, bass, midi strings, & midi flute (midi's played with guitar using Sonuus G2m), and Scott (U.S) - drums, percussion. If I had to describe a style, this would be a Latin/jazz/folk tune. Many hours were involved in this track, so hope you enjoy. We'd love to hear your thoughts.

    Hi Scott!

    Wow...Thank YOU, Danke, for a very humbling comment. I'm blushing! Agree, Janis' (Carole's) voice is most excellent. I think she is one of the top three singers on this community. She mentioned maybe redoing this track with live vocals instead of the pellas we used. Hope it materializes

    Off to check out Dan's new song.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    Hello there Scott! First let me shout out to Janis and say I love the tone of your voice...kinda reminds me of Basia. I love the instrumentation as well...Janis'vocals seem to be in the rhythm pocket for the most part, and that's pretty cool that you were able to do that. However, I do also hear some clashing going on which sometimes makes her vocal seem out of tune...for instance around 1:17 where she sings the word "dry" there seems to be a disconnect for a second..then it's right back in the pocket until the disconnect happens again. Perhaps if you take Janis up on her offer to lay a fresh vocal over your wonderful instrumental that would solve the problem. Other than that, I have to say Well Done!

    Love & Light,

    Mykael

    Hi Mykael,

    Thanks for your comments. I have contacted Carole and am taking her up on the offer to lay fresh vocals. I have always loved her vocals, and you're right, she does sound like Basia since you mentioned it. Hopefully, you will hear a new version.

    Ciao,
    Scott

    Reply by ScottFranco

    Thanks again, Carole. I thought that's what you were singing, but wasn't sure. Not sure what it means, but you are the poet. Chloroform puts you to sleep, so guess it means your soul is sleeping?

    Let's make more music!

    Hi Scott and Franco :)
    I do like the instrumental, sounds awesome ! I know how tough it is to adapt "out of the blue" pellas to a music piece and you managed quite right but I think this track deserves real singing . Next time, I'll be glad to sing for you if you wish me to :)
    Thanks a lot for the wink,
    Greetz

    Hi Carole,

    I'm delighted that you approve of OUR track. Yes, it is tough to work with pellas, but Franco does a great job with this task. I think it would be amazing for you to put new vocals to the track if you are interested in taking it on. I can send you the track minus the vocals and you can do your thing. I will contact you with my email.

    Ciao,
    Scott

    When you grow up, you will find that by putting someone or something down in order to make yourself feel better is a sign of low intelligence.

    I implore anyone who reads this youngster's comments to go to his page and listen to his stuff. It will become clear why he does this!

    Re: "sounds out of sync"

    I was a bit perplexed by your comment! I have certainly NEVER commented negatively about another member's track, and I will not start now, but I did give a listen to all of the tracks you have uploaded on your page and I can understand why you find our track "out of sync!" After listening to your work, I am no longer perplexed by your comment, but we thank you very much for your left handed words.

    Cheers,

    Wonderful Song. I have to repeat myself: the vocals from Carole are simply wonderful and you have used them in a beautiful way. Maybe it could have been interesting to hear a more "complex" text but repeating the bits you have worked pretty well.
    The drums are perfect: love the fill at 2:05
    The overall drum sound is incredibly tight and "professional".
    Kudos to Franco as well: his guitar work is very balanced and subtle. Exactly what the song needed.
    The arrangement deserves some good notes as well. Maybe some more variations on the keyboard pattern could help, but it's a minor thing.
    In one word: superb!
    Ciao, Domenico

    Reply by ScottFranco

    Thanks allot, Domenico. If not mistaken, the pellas were a combination of three, so Franco pieced them together. Wish we'd have had more. Thanks for the kind words on the drums.

Description : This song highlights a few different styles of jazz. First it starts with a kinda early 20s and 30s groove. Than it melds into a New Orleans style. Than into a sort of Maynard Ferguson big band jazz/rock groove, and finishing off with the 20s and 30s style again, all held together with some cool horns and bass. All n all, it's...Pretty Cool! Hope you like

Description : Do not freak out just because this is jazz! There's also blues, rock, funk and a little hip hop in it to break up the deep, chillout jazz sections - gets particularly rocking then funky at the end. Main bassline (the track's foundation) is recycled leftover slide resonator guitar parts detuned one octave to make a slide bass sound. Also features: piano, violin, hammered dulcimer, organ, ethereal pad guitar, bass guitar, jazz/blues/rock electric guitar and multiple programmed acoustic drumkits. This was difficult to make at times as I thought I needed more leads parts eg from sax or trumpet. But I'm happyish with the end result. I expect very little interest in this as it's both jazz and long jazz. But it's also an unusual type of genre-mixing jazz. So, leave your thoughts, good or bad, if you like...

Description : This track contains only free loops from Stayonbeat.com and several loops from Looperman artists (listed below). I "made a promise" that my next track will be use a lot of jazzy loops - well, i done with this track, for the great sadness of jazz lovers or experts i think - i fear they will never forgive me. :) While my ISP launches my internet out of the Earth system for a long time, i had to face the fact that i dont have too much downloaded jazz loops on my computer, so i think no wonder that this one is sounds like if i smoke some marihuana while making it. But hey, who cares, i like the result - it reminds me the (maybe only) really funny episode of "Breaking Bad", where Pinkman uses some heroin and flyes up with an idiotic smile on his face - that chapter is priceless. :D
I dont think this one needs a vocal, but ofcourse you can use it if you want, and as always, just write and i will give any support as i can. Any feedback welcomed too as always. Enjoy! UPDATE 2015.10.24.: improved audio quality - lower lows, higher highs. Now in 256kbps!

Description : Music by Antonio Carlos Jobim. This particular piano arrangement is from one of jazz sheet piano books I found on scribd. The electric piano is MrRay22 plugin which I played on Casio CDP220 digital piano. This is also a new piece that I learned today so it was quite tricky to get a proper touch at places and overall make the entire thing sound anywhere realistic. I tried many times and this was probably the best take. Also I am relatively new to playing latin piano music. I didn't manipulate any notes after recording - instead I added few virtual vintage amps. I choose jazz but it is a bossa nova latin style. Enjoy and feel free to comment and download.

Description : "Oh no - not jazz metal! You're not supposed to mix those genres together." Yes, but someone's got to and the musical gods have chosen me for the difficult task. 9 mins of instrumental jazz metal - damn I sure know how to write a hit song - US No 1 here I come. Anyway - there's some dark, swinging groovy jazz, with Rhodes and guitar as the main instruments, for a few minutes and then some haunting, thumping evil breaks loose. Look out for the powerful synth horn sound. And then it just gets heavier and heavier before returning to some nice chillgroove funky mystery jazz. Instruments played and/or programmed: electric guitar, bass guitar, electric cello, multiple programmed acoustic drumkits, filtered strings, Rhodes, big synth bass, evil synth horn and a few other assorted synths. I assume this has too much jazz for metallers and too much metal for jazzers. So, only for weirdoes like me who enjoy both. This will surely be too odd for most people but I like to think it's pretty interesting and powerful. Let me know how its weirdness worked for you...
