This is the old jazz tune, "Satin Doll".
All of the instruments (piano, fretless bass, drums, vibes and tenor sax) are from the Garritan Jazz and Big Band sample library.
Regards to all,
All right! My favorite! And so well done!* Thanks.
*As you always do!
Personally, I'm waiting for caller IQ.
well done Mr Larry
Hey Larry, this is GREAT, my friend!!
I haven't heard anything quite along these same lines from you before, but obviously you've got some major jazz chops! Love the arrangement, the choice of instruments, your improvs... everything! I really liked that breathy tenor sax sound combining so pleasingly with the vibes, but I thought the brightest moment of many was your piano solo. Terrific! In fact, the whole rhythm section -- the most challenging aspect of JABB to pull off convincingly, I think -- was flowing and natural, with some timely kicks from the drums to boot (no pun intended ).
I'm impressed, as always... but especially so with this! Kudos!!
Many thanks. It's one of my favorites too.Originally Posted by Jaybee
I made a conscious effort to try for realism, Mr. Ern.Originally Posted by Ernstinen
The breath samples are included with the JABB samples. They are located way above the normal range of the instruments.
I have played "Satin Doll" a jillion times also. I am an old jazz man.

I have posted more of my jazz things on the forum through the years. It may have been before you joined the group.Originally Posted by DDW
I have a long jazz history, Mr. Danny. I have worked with jazz groups and big bands since I was teenager, and that's a long time. I have also arranged for jazz groups and bands for many years.
As you know, the breathy sound is controlled by a CC number.
Thanks for listening and commenting.
To Dizzy Bird Theolonius Alexander:
You old sandbagger! You're a closet jazzer. I hope you're happy now as I'll never post a jazz chart again. I can't begin to get these kinds of sounds and results. The drums, bass and piano "comps" are terrific. The whole chart really swings it's a-- and the solo's are great. Are you trying to pull my leg and using live players?
I bow deeply to your superior skills. You've nailed it.
Thank you, Mr. Steve. Appreciate it.Originally Posted by sosmus
You had BETTER post some more jazz charts!
Go ahead. Take a chorus on 'bone.
