Description : Have you been longing for some old 30's swing? Yeah, didn't think so! Well, check it out anyway...You may just like it. I doubt you will hear anything like this on Looperman. I tried to keep section of this sounding vintage and even put in some record scratches in the beginning and end. Check it out and let me know what you think.

    Vintage, indeed!The movie, "The Cotton Club" came to mind as I listened to this. The recorded scratch adds the perfect touch! I like this, a lot! Another Fav!

    Reply by ScottB55

    LOL...You seem to be digging my stuff, Kay, and I'm really glad and thankful. Thanks for the 'fav.'

    When I started doing these 20s and 30s styles, I would have bet a dollar to a donut that no one would have cared much for them. I haven't listened to this one in about a year, but still enjoy it.


    P.S. If you're into Latin styles, my collaborator friends and I just finished our latest. Check it out, if you like at: http://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/161449

    Good gravy. I never comment and here I am again saying - good really sweet job. I'm a vinyl gal so loved the crackles too.

    Reply by ScottB55

    Thanks so much. Glad you're finding my stuff interesting. I've just started checking out some really, really old jazz and have been putting my own spin on some. The crackling is always there on the old 78 records, so gave it a little authenticity. Since you like this, check out 'Django's Revenge.' It was my first in the really old style.

    Hi Behnam,

    I haven't talked with you in awhile. Thanks for checking out my track and leaving your nice compliment.

    I am noticing your English is really getting good. Keep it up and maybe one day you can use it in America.

    WOW really wonderful - very clever! You basically use all the tricks of the genre and I mean that in a good way. There are about 6 tracks here that could be remixed in a variety of ways. Interesting throughout. I agree that it could be a movie sound track. Great work - this must have been fun.

    Reply by ScottB55

    Hey, thanks allot, Clindsay! I've actually been listening to this style a bit more so I can get a better handle on it. I've always checked out the better know drummers of the time but not much else. I'm kinda digging it, believe it or not!

    All of the track is great but my fav bit starts from 2:36, it's like the bit where everyone in the club gets up and joins in. Then theres the main dancers who move to the rythm of the sax while all in background are doing some kind of nine step lindy hop.

    Awesome !

    Reply by ScottB55

    Hey, thanks allot, StrawHat! You have a good imagination. I can kind of visualize that, now.

    Much appreciated, Ronabo. Glad you enjoyed it. There is more vintage style tracks on my page if you are interested (Check out 'Django's Revenge. It's similar to this.)

    I've been checking out your stuff, too.

    As regards Sonar X3 Producer being a crap DAW - I doubt it. I think they're basically all good though I've never tried that one and don't really know much about it.

    I've heard people say Reason is some sort of amateur thing but I've been using it nearly every day since 2001 and have got some wonderful results from it, in my opinion (and some other people's as well).

    Anyway, clearly the female voices are samples but I'm still not sure what else you're playing on here. Drums are you on the Alesis kit, I gather.

    Gypsy swing guitar, maybe?

    2:45 the bassline that goes with the drums I previously mentioned is cool and classic. Good drums tend to need a good bassline. Just as well one often inspires the other, or vice versa.

    4:36 sax is cool. Another sample?

    Sorry for asking about all the samples vs played instruments but it makes a big difference to me to know what someone's actually playing. Good playing is good playing but if I hear some killer riffs or solos and find out it's the Looperman producer, I'm even more impressed.

    " I really think more people like this style than want to admit"

    I agree, in part. It's probably not so much the admitting thing, more that they forget about this style as you don't hear it about much these days. It's almost like particular period music.

    P.S. Django's Revenge is kind of what happens in Tarantino's excellent film Django Unchained - perhaps my favourite film from last year. Not sure why some people hated it but doesn't matter here and now. I remember your track too though probably listened only 6 months ago. Ah yes, I just checked and I reviewed it 5 months ago though you never replied. My comment included a good music recommendation for you.

    It's like I finally have my own LPs! So beautiful vintage jazz that makes you dance and clear your mind of everything and have an awesome time laughing! Loved it :)

    Reply by ScottB55

    Thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed it. I wasn't sure how this would go over, but seems more people like it than I thought! I'm really getting into the older stuff, because I can't find anything worth a crap on the radio anymore.

    i remember listening to my dad's LPs of benny goodman, dorsey brothers, artie shaw, etc. etc.
    you really are capturing the feeling, the spirit of this super hip music! breath of fresh air! cheers! by the by - I have a track that has been dormant that is sort of in a similar vein - maybe you would have an idea or two for it? here is the link: https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/150007

    Reply by ScottB55

    I'm with ya, MS. My mom and dad influenced me with this style, also. I would never had admitted it at the time, nor did I even realize it, but it began to show up in my later years, and now I love it. I just did a week run of the old Broadway musical, '42nd Street' from the 1930s and I was amazed at how much I enjoyed performing it. I always wondered why some of that stuff is still being played and performed and most of today's stuff comes and goes. I now realize the old stuff is good and most of the new stuff is CRAP...But I digress. Sorry kids...you will realize this eventually!

    Anyway, thanks my friend for lending and ear and leaving your kind words.

    Yeah, man, I was just sitting around today doing not much, looking out the window, longing for some 30s swing. And then you came along and fulfilled my longing and answered my prayers to the musical gods.

    No, that was all a lie but this is damn good!

    The first 30 secs are pretty much a whole track.

    Are you really playing everything in that intro? The cool female voices? Samples?

    So much going on here that you may not get a lot of detail in comments but you will get a lot of love for this creative oddity.

    I'd love a detailed description of what I'm actually hearing and how you put it together.

    Love the big main tom-based swinging groove. Gypsy swing guitar very cool. Little blippy synth may well not have been possible in the 30s. Hey, why not add a bit of techno? And maybe a little bhangra plus a Latin rap?

    "I doubt you will hear anything like this on Looperman"

    I think the only previous thing was a track you did, in which you also added old record scratch.

    Thing is, if you stick this on in all sorts of clubs, I'm sure a lot of people would dance to it and enjoy themselves. It's really timeless stuff though you've obviously done it in your own strange, cool way.

    More detail from me later as this is worth it.

    Reply by ScottB55

    Hey SN, Always fun reading your concise comments. Not much to say as far as details. It's a combination of loops and live playing and some aggressive equalizing on the part of the older sounding stuff. I did it in Sonar X3 Producer (which someone on this site said was a 'crap' DAW a few months ago in the forum!) I really think more people like this style than want to admit. It is simply 'fun' music.

    Your memory is good...I did another similar to this one about a year ago called, 'Django's Revenge.' (It's still on my page if anyone wants to check it out.)

    Thanks allot for your time.

    OK. This was REALLY fun!! Yes, some of us are ready for some 30's swing. This is much better than my poor attempt:

    Although I think the scratchy record sound on my track was almost as good! :)

    I assume you played the drums live. I no longer have a drum set and couldn't find any samples with the right cymbal sound. You had it nailed, though.

    Nice work.

    Reply by ScottB55

    Hey Eric,

    Glad you checked it out and like it. Wasn't sure anyone would. Also glad you like the drums. They are an Alesis electronic kit. My acoustic Ludwigs are just not feasible to use with this situation.

    Checking out your track, now.

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 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!

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...
