Three Jazz instrumental forwards

Post by Jfinbury » Mon Mar 07, 2016 10:12 pm

Hello! This is my first post since I became a Taxi member in 2014. This marks the fifth opportunity forward my instrumental jazz has achieved with this particular reviewer (#380). No "success" yet, but reviewer "380" and I are becoming friends.

SMALL ENSEMBLE JAZZ INSTRUMENTALS are needed for a $1,000, Non-Exclusive, Direct-to-Supervisor placement in a brand new Drama-based TV Series. They’re looking for original, mood-setting, Down-to-Mid-Tempo Jazz Instrumentals in the general stylistic wheelhouse of artists like Grant Green, Bill Evans, Miles Davis, etc., etc., etc. Please listen to the following references to get yourself in the ballpark of what they need: “Django” by Grant Green: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0P3kNWdh1k “Alice In Wonderland” by Bill Evans Trio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuzZ8mV9Zh8 “Four” by Miles Davis Quintet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xuLs0ax7XI Quoting the source: “We need Instrumental Jazz to play as background source in a car. Should be a trio, quartet, or small ensemble. The lead instrument that’s soloing shouldn't stick out too much (the part shouldn't get too busy and the volume should be mixed appropriately with the rest of the instrumentation).” Please submit authentic-sounding Jazz Instrumentals that are, or sound like a real-deal, small-ensemble Jazz band, with excellent musicianship. Instrumentation can vary, but should be typical of a traditional, small-ensemble Jazz group. Please avoid submitting anything that sounds stiff, synthetic, or obviously MIDI-driven. The more authentic sounding, the better! Also, please avoid busy and/or frenetic material that would distract from dialog in the scene. Do NOT copy or rip off the referenced music in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for tempo, texture, and overall vibe. Broadcast quality is needed (great sounding home recordings are fine). The estimated license fee for this use is $1,000. This is a Direct-to-Music Supervisor placement, so you’ll keep 100% of your Master and Composition rights, plus you’ll also get 100% of the sync fee and any applicable performance royalties. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to pitch for this opportunity. All Submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis by a Music Coordinator working on the show. No full critiques. Please submit 1-3 Instrumentals online or per CD no later than 11:59PM (PST), on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016. TAXI #U160203JZ

Hi John,

Your song, My Old Friend, exudes a beautiful sophistication-- nice changes and great playing. Your 1st and 3rd Soundcloud links are not connecting, though.

Congrats,
Niall

Thanks Niall: Here are what I hope are functional SoundCloud connections to the three jazz instrumentals that were forwarded.
