Here's a snappy chart I'm kinda attached to, Praising His Way. I did this song long enough ago that unfortunately I don't remember much about how it came about. What I do recall is when I did this song I was thinking I didn't have a song with a strong alto sax lead playing the melody. I've been partial to the trumpet and trombone in my other songs and thought this would be a good one to center-stage the alto sax. The alto sax is what I played mostly (Selmer Mk 6) and wanting to hear more of it turned me towards the Swing Era when all my friends listened to rock music growing up. Anyway, here's Praising His Way which is a light bossa-nova swing featuring the alto sax on melody and solo followed by a piano solo which is kind of interesting. The piano solo is played by a friend who does cocktail lounge playing of sorts. We midi'd it into the computer and I think this is the JABB piano or possibly Gigastudio's LE piano. Most of the instruments are JABB with some other sample libraries being used. I try not to have two instruments from the same library in the same section. Praising His Way is just a little over 4 minutes long. Have fun listening!
