I've been a lurker for a long time now and have been inspired by many here to push for as an authentic jazz band sound as I am able to do. I created a CD I would like to get published and since created a demo I believe I can share here with you all. I have much gratitude and many thanks for all of you and the Garritan team for making this venture possible.
The band name is Living Waters Jazz (Inspirational music combined with Big Band jazz of the Swing Era variety) and I use a fair number of Garritan samples. The band makeup is 2 trumpets (x1 Garr.), 2 trombones (x1 Gar.), 3 saxes (Alto, Ten and Bari (Garr)) plus Bass (Garr), Guitar (Garr), Piano, and Drums (Garr). Vibes and Strings on occasion (Garr). Vocal on some tunes is a friend of mine, Dave Bentley.
The demo is six 30 second clips with fades of songs from the CD.
