Thanks for the 5's for "Rise Again".
hey...Bill...a good tune is a good tune!!...as musicians we need to be supportive of each others work/ talents....5/5's don't come easy...and in my opinion their not supposed to! We need to be fair and honest at the same time....your tune deserved it!!!!...Keep up the great work..will be listening!!!
Thanks for reviewing "Northern Climes". This tune has received numerous awards and positive reviews from various producers and contests.
Want to thank you for the review of "Fun Outside". It was just a quick idea that I needed to put down for future reference. Yeah, Jazz is not the biggest seller on Bjam, but it's where my muse is most comfortable. Sounds like you've got a good handle on this biz...will check out some of your work in a bit.
Bill a.k.a. Mr. Bill
Hello Mr. Bill,
Your quick ideas are sure solid! I respect your craft, and even though my insight is limited on the production side, I absolutely love the genre. Have been listening to the likes of Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, etc. for years. Jazz Fusion/Funk if you will. Anyway, thank you for wanting to check my work and for the new friendship....Vicki
Bela Fleck ( Victor Wooten on bass ) got me thinkin' in different directions many years ago. Jazz has taken on many variations in the last 30 years. If you get a chance, I've posted a new tune on Bjam "Pale Vanilla Moon" you might like. Got some folks in Nashville who are promoting it.
Happy Thanksgiving Mr. Bill....Oh yes I agree with you...jazz has expanded its horizons immensely! It still lends the smooth and classy touch on music in general though. Regal; if I might say. Nice work on Pale Vanilla Moon! I do like it! So glad you have some Nashville support on promoting it...I hope it reaches the masses for you...
Thanks for the 5's for "Looney Toons". Old track from some less than good days. Appreciate the support.
Wanted to thank you for the kind remarks and the 5's for Pale Vanilla Moon. Jazz isn't a big seller on Bjam so I'm always surprised at the different responses...and also how few folks actually take the time to do so.
Wishing you continued success.
No problem Bill. I know how it feels, as if you're creating music in a vacuum and nobody hears it :-) I like to encourage fellow songwriters/music-producers to keep doing what they do. I hope that you have fun creating more music for future projects.
I feel this way about my own music. Its hard to raise above the noise sometimes.
Want to thank you for the 5's and nice response for Pale Vanilla Moon.
R & S,
Thanks for the 5's for Pale Vanilla Moon. Appreciate your quick response also.
Thanks for the 5's for Pale Vanilla Moon.
I enjoyed the tune----- best of luck to you!
Thanks for the 5's for Pale Vanilla Moon.
Thanks for the 5's for Pale Vanilla Moon. Appreciate the support.
Thanks for the 5's for PVM.
Workin' on a new one that's been hiding in my computer for ages. Instrumentally done with a scratch vocal that needs lyrics, which are not coming easily.
Thanks for the 5's for "Pale Vanilla Moon".
Oh No.......Mr. Bill........Saturday Night Live!!
Thanks for reviewing "Scorcher". 20+ year old recording. The samples/midi didn't seem cheap at the time...
Thanks for the review of "Motivator".
Of course! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the review, 5's and playlist add for "Papa Don't Mind". Appreciate your support. In the process of doin' some lyric changes to clear up some miss-interpretations. These songs are never done....
Thanks for the 5's for "Getaway". Did you do a review? I've done a small re-write recently but haven't re-recorded it yet. Just a couple of tweaks...you know how that works. And, thanks for the facebook request. I just recently started back up after dumping it for a couple of years.
Maybe I am overlooking something, but I often do a listen without seeing a review option. Stars option yes.
Thanks for the kind review and 5's for "Strange Fruit".
Thanks for the review of "Carolina Moon". In the process of re-writing and making it a Jazz standard style tune. New Title: "Pale Vanilla Moon".
That's a brave but smart thing to do LA taught me to change in 5 seconds its so worth it catnip=+=
Hey Bill! You're real close on this beauty! I feel It needs just a tad of tweaking and it will wind up on the big charts for sure! I always appreciate when someone takes the time to tell me this and it has led to a good song turning into a great song several times!
All the Best! catnip=+=
Yeah, Nigel needs to be expanded upon. Late '90's I think. I've got a ton of these that should be revisited...thanks for the review.
Thanks for another fun to read review...this time for "I Really Love Your Mind". Old tune that my guy in Nashville wants me to re-record, make it a Jazz quartet, club sounding thing...workin' on it.
Did pretty well in the SongU contest I mentioned. Didn't win but finished in the top 4 out of 150+. I can live with that.
Ever and always a pleasure to review your stuff, Mr. Bill.
BTW, you're lookin' good under that hat!
An original "Tribble"...
My Father-in Law was a great hat wearer. We inherited a bunch of them and I occasionally will don one in his honor.
Ok, gotta ask. Original "Tribble" as in actually from the set of the Star Trek original series episode? I thought the Kingons were gifted all of them?
Thanks for the review of "Little Journey". A pro-reviewer hated it, though it has done pretty well on Bjam top 10's and general reviews.
Really like "HA!"...is that a bari-sax I hear? What piano patch did you use on that?
Most of my top 10's disappeared overnight. Not an unknown experience. I'm in the running for a co-write with a Grammy winning writer and a chance for pitching to a publisher...on SongU. Find out on the 15th.
Thanks for reviewing "Fun Outside". 30+ year old sketch of an idea, not meant to be a finished piece. Been listening to some of your tunes, enjoy what I've heard so far.
Thanks for the 5's for "Speed of Life". It's been on and off a few Bjam top 10 lists for awhile now. Still don' t understand the rating system...
Listening to some of your newer stuff, gotta catch up, and I really like what I'm hearing.
Thanks for reviewing " In The Beginning". Welcome to Broadjam.
Thanks for the 5's for " Polka Dot Blue ". Just went #1 on the jazz top 10. Noticed you lurking around there, too.
Been a struggle lately to get things recorded, lot's of ideas but can't seem to focus on one long enough to get it done.
Rejoined SongU after many years...just got notified that I've been selected as a "rising star" for one of my tunes. Only took 60+ years of writing to reach this milestone. 76 next month and still trying to figure this stuff out...
Hey Bill! I have been overwhelmed with obligations here, mainly babysitting. Yikes! Have been working on something new but it has been especially slow going :-( Hope to resolve matter at some point in not too distant future. -- You have been a rising star ... er, risen rather ... in my estimation for some time now. Keep up that truly great work, sir!!
Thanks for reviewing "Scorcher". Yeah, a little different for Bjam. A quick and dirty recording to meet a contest deadline many years ago...
Appreciate the review and high marks for "Before My Fall". It was a finalist in the SongDoor contest a couple of years ago.
Thanks for the review of "Speed of Life". It's received some honorable mentions and special recognitions on various song writing contests.
Thanks for the review of "I'm Beginning To See The Light". Old Ellington (Duke), Hodges and James tune.
Congrats on your recent successes...more to come ,I'm sure.
