Topic: [JABB] A little Dixieland

    Talking [JABB] A little Dixieland

    A friend asked me to arrange a portion of Scott Joplin's "Sugar Cane" in a Dixieland jazz band style, for use in the closing credits of an animation he'd done.

    Here's the original piece (well, the last section thereof):

    Sugar Cane (piano rag)

    And here's my arrangement:

    Sugar Cane (Dixieland arrangement)

    It's all JABB -- except for the banjo, alas.

    This is my first foray into Dixieland style, so if anyone has any pointers on how I can improve in the future, I'd be grateful to hear them.

    The dixieland one is superb, very realistic, I'll take it!

    My only recommendation is to pan the hi-hat more towards center and cut a little bit of high end frequency response around 8K. This will eliminate the "modern" sound to the hat. The rest of the recording has a very good club feel which is great.
    great sound!

    Excellent arranging, Jeff!

    This is really first rate... I've had it looping a number of times.
