Lucky find in BiaB. The style is marked Jazz waltz with nylon guitar. Turns out to be no guitar and a nice piano.

Why we doing this in C? I've just been trying to borrow some licks off Mr Desmond and he's in Eb. I'm off to do a bit of transposing.:cool:

Great stuff Colin -

Key was as found in biab file - guess the same as yours? Any key you fancy...

I'm looking forward to how this will evolve!

You might want to check post 11. The version from the album Summertime has the melody in Eb concert which is C for the alto. That is the key I put the waltz accompaniment in as well. There are also some nice melodic ideas in the solo transcription in one of the links.

Hi,

in Austria, we don't waltz :)

I admit, the BiaB Bossa-track is not very inspiring, but it's a nice Mark VI :)

One question about streaming "wav" from Box...:
If streamed, it it mp3, right? I feel the quality is not very good, streaming my already compressed files from Dropbox sounds better.

Cheers, Guenne

Agree about the backing, appreciate you giving it a go though.

Regarding the different sources, initially on a laptop (!) the .wav may have more clarity, I'll listen on monitors then headphones later & report back if my feeble ear can really detect a difference..

Audacity will change the key of the backing for you. It gets pretty distorted if you move more than a tone or so but a semitone from D to Eb should sound ok.
