Thanks, Roberto, that means a lot to me, especially coming from someone so skilled at JABB like yourself.
I guess I'm having a difficult time getting that smooth sax section sound, and the trumpets/trombones in the midrange sound. It'll take some more work and experimentation. I'm taking a Jazz arranging class next semester, so no doubt that'll be a great help.
What's the hassle about setting up your 88 key board? Space in your home studio I guess?
Ah, I'm just plain lazy I guess. It takes a little while to set it up since I keep it packed for gigs. Whereas the 66-key was already set up.
Nikolas, maybe what you're hearing is the lack of "mids" in the arrangement. I'm having a difficult time getting that sound that I want, but with some formal training that should set me in the right direction.
The upright bass is JABB, I used it just because I wanted the song to be 100% JABB.
