Description : This may be a first for Looperman and one or two of you may even like it (but I doubt too many more will.) This is a New Orleans or Dixieland style jazz track and I don't believe I've ever heard this style here. Dixieland is one of the oldest styles of jazz in America (although they didn't call it this back then) and it's still quite popular in New Orleans. I had the pleasure of playing this style at Seville Quarter, Pensacola, FL., back in my younger years. I did this track for my 93 year old Uncle John, who loves Dixieland. Hope you like it.

Love it and it sounds so authentic ... it's the real deal!
I've heard quite a few New Orleans funeral tunes in this kind of style but usually heavier on the bass drum because it's for a march.Keep telling myself I've gotta go out and buy some of this stuff and then forget. Thanks for the reminder.
This really does sound like the real thing and what a great ending! Faved and downloading now.

This is maybe not realy my style but it sounds fantastic real.
I came here to listen how Dixiland will sound on looperman and i have to say - it sounds great -
Nice composition. I always had the feeling of - could it be that i know that? - Realy well played and nicely mixed.

Good one.

stay tuned

I like it man! :D
never heard anything like this before.
regardless, u get my vote! :D

ScottB55 replied 8th Jan 2016 - 8 years ago
Thanks alot, Eighteen. Actually, this style has been around about 100 years; probably one of the oldest American styles.

toastedavalanche 6th Jan 2016 16:03 - 8 years ago
Wow, you've really captured the genre's joyful feelings of nostalgia. I bet uncle John will be tapping away to this with a grin on his face. I know I was :)

ScottB55 replied 6th Jan 2016 - 8 years ago
Many thanks for your complimentary words, TA. It's really appreciated.

Yeah, unk has always been polite when listening to my music and he would say, "that's nice," but he actually liked this track.

Orlando51 6th Jan 2016 00:20 - 8 years ago
I bet uncle John must have been very pleased when he heard this one, the same way as I am!:)This is just fantastic and so damn rare thing to hear here on Looperman. This dixieland is full of genuine charm and deserves 11 out of 10 !:)

Compliments and respect_____Orlando
ScottB55 replied 6th Jan 2016 - 8 years ago
Thanks allot, Orlando. I really appreciate your kind words. I'm actually surprise; upon writing this, there is actually 4 fav'd and 4 downloads! That's more than I would have expected. Maybe there's hope for it, afterall!

Thanks again, my friend.

theHumps 5th Jan 2016 20:46 - 8 years ago
Whoa, Fantastic!!

I've been working on a dixieland type style with some rock thrown in for a few months. This one is more authentic though. I am a fan of dixieland and have a few greatest hits cd's. It's energetic and full of power.

You really managed to put this song in a specific time period, great job with the arrangement and instrument selection and performance. The horns are great and the banjo sounds cool as well. Way cool vocals and crowd noise.

Great job Scott, going to dl and fav, thanks!

ScottB55 replied 5th Jan 2016 - 8 years ago
Thanks so much, Wayne. I really appreciate your kind words. I look forward, and will be watching for your Dixieland track. Your music is very creative and I always click on it when I see it.

Danke 5th Jan 2016 20:37 - 8 years ago

Special moments in Looerman...thanx for that Scott...that final minute is simply outstanding...:-)

Hat's off to Uncle John...long live with Dixieland...

Handshake, Danke
ScottB55 replied 5th Jan 2016 - 8 years ago
Thank YOU, Mr. Danke! So glad you like it and also the final minute. I wanted to simulate a crowd chanting, so I just recorded myself about 8 time and changed the pitch and off-set each track slightly.

My uncle heard it for the first time today and he liked it. He was real good friends with Turk Murphy back in the day.

musiclover38 5th Jan 2016 19:56 - 8 years ago
Love it! One of the things I've picked up on here on looperman, is that every genre has it's own crowd. Im with this crowd :-)

Thanks for this. Fav'ed

- Søren

P.S. would love to do some guitar on this sometime. Can I tinker with it?
ScottB55 replied 5th Jan 2016 - 8 years ago
Hey Soren, glad you like it.

You're right... Every genre has it's fans. I skip all the rap and hip-hop and usually the heavy metal unless I know the person. My styles are mostly jazz and funk. On occasion I'll do some rock and pop if I find some nice vocals to work around. I also work with Musicante here with some other styles.

Sure, play around with it if you like.

I was too young but captivated by the soulful jazz melodies that filled our home on lazy Sunday afternoons. "Summertime" Exudes a timeless touch of elegance it has a special place in my heart.

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 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 : I created a hip hop groove in Logic and decided to duel some Saxophones. I am playing the Baritone sax on the left pan and the Tenor Sax on the right pan.
I added some bells like a boxing match bell to give it a fight drama feel. The hip hop track itself is dope to me. The duel is cool too. Who won?

Description : I wrote this track about two years ago. I remember at the time I wrote it I was having conversations with BofD and Mark about oddball time signatures so,
I played all the instruments in different time signatures from time to time 3/4 4/4 5,6 &7/8 etc. I wanted this track to be a track where time sigs went to die.

Description : I was working on another track that I couldn't get to work and after a couple hours I gave up disgusted and frustrated and just started playing keyboard a bit, for fun.

And then I wrote this.

Because sometimes that's how our creative brains work. Go figure.
