    Some Jazz and JABB

    This is my first post of music in this forum and unforunately, it is not a classical piece like I usually write. I hope to purchase GPO this fall to go with Sibelius, but I received JABB as a gift and decided to go outside my expertise and try something new. This is the 4th rewrite of a Jazz piece and I hope someone likes it. I am still learning how to get JABB to work with Sib 4, so I'm sure this could be better. It is a short piece, just a little over 3 minutes long. Any and all comments would be appreciated.


    Here is the MP3

    I hope you consider the Listening room your new home.

    Great work on this! Just give it some time and you'll be an expert soon.
    Good to see you in here.

    Hi, rolifer - I know I've seen you somewhere, the other Garritan Forums? Glad to see you finally posting something here!

    But why "...unfortunately, it is not a classical piece like I usually write..." ? Because that's what you write more of, I guess you meant - But each piece we do Is what it Is, and I for one certainly wouldn't say Jazz is somehow "less" than modern-classical.

    ANyway - I like where you took me with this piece. I got more than a glimpse into your musical mind and it was an interesting vista indeed.

    I'd prefer to hear your combo move forward to us a bit - as in, the recording with less reverb. They're sitting pretty far back there.

    Thanks - This was intriguing, and I want to hear this again right away--here I go.

    My first love is classical music. But since I do not have gpo yet, I will follow the rules and not post until I do. I am also in a bit of a slump, but writing jazz(with jabb and sib) has been helping me get back into the swing. My favorite style of work is string quartets followed closely with symphonic pieces. This does not mean that I think Jazz is any less important of a style than classical is.

    I can't wait to get gpo so I can show what I can really do. Jazz is a ton of fun, but I am so new at it that I know my work is lacking the skill I have seen displayed here not only in Jazz, but other types of music as well. Thank you and to all for the kind replies.

    Re: Some Jazz and JABB

    Hey Ron, I think it would be OK if you were to use some of the JABB instruments in your orchestral works and then posted them here. They don't have to be 100% completely Garritan. Just a suggestion until you get GPO.

    I have a hunch that you compose modern music. It sounds like you have lots of ideas to work with.

    Welcome aboard, Ron!

    I will be most interested to hear your orchestral work, based
    on a listen to this one... quite a ride; the more abstract
    realms of Jazz aren't areas where I'm well equipped to
    comment, but the way this goes together was a fascinating
    listen.

    I might suggest a little tighter reverb with the rendering
    on this; but the overall sound was convincing and well done.

    Keep it coming!

    My best,
