I'm basing this on the number of plays I get on soundcloud for any given month. For example I may average 20 plays the first post. Second post 9 or 10. Third post I'm lucky if anyone listens at all. Just my experience.No we don't but we just forget to comment, I often set a track playing then go off reading stuff whilst I listen and forget to go back
I promise to listen to your last attempt just tag meI'm basing this on the number of plays I get on soundcloud for any given month. For example I may average 20 plays the first post. Second post 9 or 10. Third post I'm lucky if anyone listens at all. Just my experience.
Sadly true ... so produce a track that's all solo instead.Trouble is folks tire of listening to the same person after the second or third post.
I have been really studying this tune, and this transcription is a "master class" by Dexter Gordon on what notes sound "hip" over the changes. His "quotes" of other Jobim tunes are delightful as well. @Colin the Bear What's not to like???Excellent tune and some nice versions so far.
My favourite performance is a live recording by Dexter Gordon from his superb album(s) Swiss Nights.
What a sound and what great music !
I was in the groove and it suddenly stopped.Still only one chorus, but I made some changes. This one is in the key of E instead of D like my other one. I'm playing my Selmer SA80ii instead of my YTS- 82z, and I played around with mic placement and settings. Feedback welcome.
Thanks for listening Rob, I really appreciate it. I was mainly seeing what kind of sound I could get and I wasn't ready to try a solo. I'm getting closer to following the changes and will post a final take before the month is out.I was in the groove and it suddenly stopped.
I liked some of your ideas in the solo. My only critique would be the synth is too loud in the mix during the bridge.
Thanks for that comment. I guess I was trying for "lush" and made it "loud" instead. It always helps to have another set of ears for projects like this.I liked some of your ideas in the solo. My only critique would be the synth is too loud in the mix during the bridge.
No disrespect meant because I like to add those things to the bridge myself. I just thought it was loud enough to make your playing harder to hear in that section.Thanks for that comment.

Oh, I don't think it is.'Might' being the operative word.
I was wondering when you'd join in.Here is my best effort (edited) so far on this marvelous tune.
At first I wasn't quite sure how to respond to this comment, but upon reflection this is my answer. "Wave" as composed and performed by Jobim has a gentle and flowing melody, and as such I feel it needs to be played in that style. On the other hand when improvising my own melody over the changes, I am free to develop my ideas and go beyond the boundaries of the original melody.I was wondering when you'd join in.
I think I prefer the second half as it sounds, to me at least, that you go from playing the song the way you think you should play it to letting the song play you and you letting it. If that makes sense...
