Big Band era style piece

My machine maxed out before I was able to edit this one correctly, too much information on this one for
my ancient laptop to handle so I will be doing the tedious job of loading the nearly 2 gb's of files for this
song and my daw onto another machine.. I want to share it in this state so I can get ideas before I do final mixing anyways.

The only fake instruments in this one are a vst piano and a vst trumpet.

I know it needs a lot of work still, but I am pretty proud of it so far, it has indeed been a lot of work
for this hack to try and even get it to work..

Along with my face being sore from blowing more horns yesterday than I should of, I am real happy with
the bass line recorded real time all the way through with absolutly no editing.

I'd like to hear any thoughts... I know it needs tightening up and some re-instrumentation, but then again
don't we all.

Hip Hop (big band)

I quite like it :-)

At times it sounded a little "busy", but I quite liked the feel a character of the piece.
Good work!

Thanks Chuck!

A plead guilty to busy..

Many of the era piece big band recordings I have from the early 30's to late 40's have a very loose dixieland type approach where every instrument is doing it's own thing shooting in the dark yet still communicating with the others.

Not saying I achieved that, but indeed it was my attempt.. and there is still a lot of mixing re-instrumentation to be done..

Thanks so much for the time and thoughts.,.

Basically, you got that effect.

I'd comment more, but really there's nothing really I can criticise. I have no problem imagining a big band playing that and people enjoying it.
