Tchaikovsky Flower Waltz done as a big band arrangement. As usual multitracked and mixed in Cubase Pro.

That is a very busy piece! And with the syncopation you have put into it I had difficulty even finding a 'one, two, three'. But with that straight 'waltz beat' in the middle I did finally get the hang of it. You must have had at least 50 multitrack sheets to put into this one. Very interesting to listen to, though!

I reckon that most of the petals must have fallen off the flowers by the time you got to the end!

Hi Tony,

A great piece for you put together, and well worth the effort you must have put in, just out of curiosity what do you use ?
keyboards, or a Computer and Vsts ? or external sound module and midi keyboard , would be interested to know

PSR SX700 and MODX6 The older I get ... the better I used to be ?

Hi Tony..A lot going on there. Some great big band sounds. Not a tune I am familiar with but enjoyed it. Never multi tracked perhaps something to look into. John

Hi Tony
Absolutely terrific multittracking arrangement.
I think if Stan Kenton was still around , he would
have considered hanging up his baton
Very enjoyable listen
Regards Don
