Blues for Kid Ory

Get Flash to see this player.

The tune is nothing special, an ordinary 12-bar blues in classic New Orleans style, but it gave me a chance to try out a couple of technical experiments. And I always wanted to lead my own jazz band. The title is in honour of Edward 'Kid' Ory (1886-1973), the greatest of all jazz trombonists, whose career spanned the very start of jazz in New Orleans in the early 1900s, up to running his own band in the 1960s. In the 1920s he recorded with Louis Armstrong, Johnny Dodds, and Jelly Roll Morton.

The music was created in GarageBand, but the final mixdown was done in Cubase LE to allow more complex highlighting of instruments in the solos and adjusting the mix during the solos.

Nice touch
This has a nice touch. You've kind of captured that "old time feeling". Too bad that the sound of sampled or synthesised brass instruments still is as they are. (Or good for brass musicians :-)
