A few weeks ago Paul Read posted a JABB demo of his flugelhorn feature "Ballad for Mr. G." It was such a fine chart that I asked Paul for permission to try my hand at doing a little additional work on the piece. Paul graciously supplied me with the midi data and score, so I spend some time over the last couple of weeks, between other work(!), re-editing the MIDI data and re-mixing. I applied the programming features in JABB in more detail and also used the mixing tools in Sonar5. I used separate impulses for each section (saxes, trumpets, trombones, rhythm) in Sound Forge. Finally, I mastered the mix in T-Racks.
The result is a somewhat different perspective on the piece. Here's the link: www.garritan.com/JABB/JABBDemos/PaulReadMrGRemix2.mp3
Thanks again to Paul for letting me play around with this wonderful example of big band writing.
