I was pretty happy with this take, except for one part around the 53 second mark where I was ahead of the beat. I didn't want to ruin it with a ridiculously bad solo attempt. I'm going to try hard to study the changes and see if I can do a full song before the month is out. Trouble is folks tire of listening to the same person after the second or third post. Can't really blame them though.It's too short.
Your playing is lovely as always. The entrance of the strings on the bridge is a nice surprise and sets off the sound of the sax beautifully. Thank you for sharing your playing and where to get the nice backing tracks.Hi,
Wave is from this "album" (I bought the downloadable version):
JOBIM Brazilian Bossa Novas with Strings, MMOCD4206
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.
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.
