    The Steinway goes out clubbing

    I noticed some interest in how the Steinway would sound in a jazz club setting so I rendered this from an available MIDI file of a jazz trio. The song is Rodgers & Harts "I Didn't Know What Time It Was."
    I used the Underlid perspective for this and the Jazz Club 1 Ambience setting. The bass is the upright 2 from JABB, and I used a brush kit in EZ Drummer for the percussion. (edit) I have changed the bass to the Jazz fretted bass 2 in JABB, with the Ampeg SVX plug-in. Sounds warmer to me now.
    I hope this is a convincing trio sound. Let me hear what you think. John

    Nice piece, piano great. Drums rather good. Bass is booming and not singing.

    Thank you, Raymond and Bill for listening and commenting. Raymond, I have updated the file with a new version with some work on the bass track. If you wouldn't mind auditioning it again, I would appreciate your input. John

    Nice work once again, John, with this Rodgers & Hart
    classic. The piano sounds great in it... so often, the
    G.Steinway completely fools me.

    My best,

    John,

    I have a hard time telling which is better - the tune or your playing!

    This is really, really, really good! Love your playing.

    And, yes, the Bigears 3 is coming to a club near you, soon. Don't miss them.

    John:

    Great arrangement of this fabulous tune and may I
    add that your rendering is just awesome.

    I can tell that you really like the Steinway D (Under Lid).

    I do too........

    Jaybee, Sorry to disapoint, the only thing I played was with some knobs on this one. I found this great MIDI file and just had to try it out with the Steinway. Someone, somewhere did a masterful job at the piano. I for one, would like to shake his hand.

    Thanks everyone, I'll be sure and give fair warning when the "Big Ears 3" is coming your way. John

    Now it is singing. Maybe with a little extra reverb on the bass only you could extend the perception of this to make the sound last a tiny bit longer. Convolution only for the bass? But as it is, it sounds great.

    You're not having us on?! this sounds fantastic, so much so that I would have taken it for a real performance; the piano timing and nuances are really first rate.
    Congratulations on a great presentation!
