Hi George,

A very nice arrangement and performance of that classic number, which is one of my favorites,
liked the style and the voices you used and well played.

All the best, Brian007

George,

That was an old favourite of mine and a real pleasure to listen to.

I noted the 'key change' about two thirds of the way through. Sounded like you were playing the tune just a semitone higher, with the 'leading' 7th chord in between. Eg. If you were playing it in C you would follow with an Ab7th chord to go into the key of Db (or C#, or whatever). So did you actually play the piece a semitone higher? Or did you use your TRANSPOSE button to move it up a semitone? And if you used the Transpose button, at what point did you play that 'leading' 7th chord? I am half expecting you to say that your Genos keyboard put that 7th chord in automatically when you told it to change key??? !!!

If I use the TRANSPOSE button on my AR it puts it straight up from eg. C to C#, which can sound a bit strange. I think really the TRANSPOSE button is something to set up before you play a piece, either because you think it sounds better played a bit higher, or because you can't play the piece in the key it was written for .. or because a singer needs it in a lower key as he/she can't reach the high notes.

Here's Mama Cass singing Dream A Little Dream Of Me.

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That give me a good grounding. Cheers.
