Desafinado composed by Jobim NOT Gilberto!

FYI: regarding the listing I just received:
Linda Starr

ORIGINAL LOUNGE/COCKTAIL JAZZ INSTRUMENTALS are needed by an EXCLUSIVE, 5-Star, MAJOR Music Library with killer placements in Feature Films, Hit TV Shows, and TV Commercials. They’re on the hunt for Instrumentals in All-Tempos that are in the general stylistic ballpark of the following references:

"All of Me" by Gerald Marks/Seymor Simons

"Desafinado" by Joao Gilberto

“Lounge Scene”

Please submit Full-Length Instrumentals (not Cues) that set the mood with authentic-sounding instrumentation (sounds like real humans playing real instruments, even if you’re using Virtual Instruments.)

If your Instrumental sounds like it would be great for background music in a scene that takes place in a classy lounge, bar, fine dining restaurant, or hotel lobby, you might be on the right track!

TAXI TIP: For this request, they’re not necessarily looking for the best composers in the world, so much as they're seeking Instrumentals that nail the background mood and lounge-y atmosphere you’d find in the places mentioned above. You’d also be wise to make sure that your piece isn't so busy that it will distract from a scene’s dialog. Keep it simple, and make it more about creating a mood and sticking with it from top to bottom.

Your submissions should be about 3-4 minutes long, give or take. Non-faded endings with a natural decay are encouraged for this pitch. Do NOT copy the referenced artists or songs in any way, shape, or form. Use them only as a general guide for feel, texture, tone, and vibe. Broadcast quality is needed.

This Company offers an EXCLUSIVE 50/50 deal, so please be sure the Instrumentals you pitch for this listing are NOT already signed with any other Libraries or Catalogs. You’ll get 100% of the Writer’s share, and the Publisher will get 100% of the Publisher’s share. You must own or control your Master and Copyright to this opportunity. Please submit as many Instrumentals as you’d like, online or per CD. All submissions will be screened on a Yes/No basis – Short Critiques only. Submissions must be received no later than 11:59 PM (PST), on Thursday, November 29th, 2018. TAXI #D181129LC
