    JABB - Variations on Blue Gardenia for big band and solo tenor sax!

    Hey whaddup everybody.

    I'm just here chillin and everything in Texas. I wanted you guys to hear my newest JABB demo.

    This is a theme and variations on a famous tune called "Blue Gardenia" by Russell/Lee. I hope you guys enjoy this.

    It's nice to have JABB demos to listen to! The solo sax sound great! I'm not to keen on the level of the muted brass and feel the drums could come up a bit here and there.
    However, nice ... very nice.

    This was fabulous!

    Has a slight 60's- 70's flavor...

    And each tempo/style shift blended seamlessly with the other.



    Awesome work!

    Very nice, Craig!!!

    The tenor sounds very good. You seemed to have coaxed out a nice warm sound. Any special settings? Occasionally might like to hear a little more legato articulation mixed in to the solo articulation. I've used this same patch and it really has a lot of response to velocity when you are playing it in. Vibrato sounds good overall. Drums sound convincing too although I agree with Styxx that they might come up in the mix. I like the harmon mutes!
    Enjoyed listening to this. Thank you for posting.

    Thanks for the comments, guys....

    Yeah, as far as the solo sax goes, I was very miticulous as far as the legato and vibrato and stuff.

    Yeah, Styxx, you're right about the volume level on the muted trumpets. I feel like it's a bit too loud. Muted trumpets with harmons on them is quite soft. I need to turn them down a bit.

    And I also can see where the drums need to come up a bit in the mix.

    I'll post another demo in a little bit with some of these changes made.

    Excellent! Exactly my taste. I enjoyed both of the tunes, the second one with the wahwah-guitar even more. A very convincing execution with that library. It seems as if in this forum there are some very talented jazz composers/players, very nice!
    Going back to relisten...
    Cheers!
