3 years ago, April 21, 2009, I posted my instrumental of the nifty Lennon/McCartney homage to the 1920's, "Honey Pie."
I simulated the sound of a worn 78 RPM record during the intro, then it opens up into the sound of a band playing in an intimate night club. After the final note, I punctuate the track with the once-dreaded sound of a needle scraping across record grooves--OUCH!
The vocal line was adapted into a Tenor Sax lead. The rest of the arrangement was a close emulation of what's heard on this White Album track, with an aim to keep it a bit restrained, cool and bouncy. I remember looking up the instrumentation of the original so I could re-create that.
The primary instruments are from "JABB" - Garritan Jazz and Big Band:
Tenor Sax (lead)
2 Alto Sax
Clarinets 1 and 2 are from GPO.
And I used Cakewalk's Studio Instruments Bass, and Session Drummer.
Here's the original thread, from back in the days when music posts could engender lots of discussion:
Honey Pie in 2009
If you go there, you wouldn't want to post a reply and bring that old thread back to the top. If you want to say anything in response to this Beatles project, I'd love to hear from you on this new thread.
