My setlist of late is all old jazz standards.  Well, a few newer tunes.  

Its funny you should mention a setlist, for I play most from memory and call 'em as I see fit, but that wasn't enough for the various agencies and places to gig, they wanted a setlist so I recently started using notepad on the gigs to jot 'em down as I play 'em.  

Bear in mind that these are for the solo jazz piano gig, I use Band in a Box on the laptop for bass and drums on many tunes and sing some although any of 'em can be just played on the piano, too.  Using BIAB like a fakebook with the laptop is neat for this kind of gig, I just set it on the piano instead of the regular music rack.  I've got over 5,000 songs in BIAB format and another whole bunch is in .pdf scans of paper fakebooks.  Name of the game is havin' the request ready and the money goes into the tip bowl.  

Here is the BIAB list from what I'm currently choosing out of mostly:

Yes, I play jazz versions of many tunes these days, certain hymns that lend themselves to the genre, too.  

But hey, drop a five spot in the jar and I'll play any tune you ask for, even if I dont' know it!    five bucks is five bucks.

How much time it took? Mean to write it down, Mac? Or you have secretary? :-)

How "involved / arranged" does a tune in BIAB end up being before you use it?
Does getting the right style (and setting her on auto-pilot) with bass and drums work for you?  -Just copping a good fake book?

How "involved / arranged" do does a tune in BIAB end up being before you use it?

--Just wondering (don't get out much).
I tweak the heck out of 'em, the BIAB files are a continuous project, a continuous process.  

I also have tweaked the heck out of many of the stock styles.  Being a piano player I wasn't all that satisfied with the piano in many of the styles even though when I play out the Piano, Melody and Solo tracks get muted and stay muted.  I
play the piano stuff, don't need that.  Some styles do have jazz or clean strat guitar in them to suit.  

BUT, a good player doesn't need to change much to go out and play.  You can get a lot of mileage out of using downloaded songs already out there if you audition them first and do things like expand the number of choruses, correct the key signatures on many (a lot of folks enter a song in another key and leave BIAB set for the default key of C, urch.  Change the key to the proper key signature, examine the chordsheet to see what it is, generally the last chord is the chord of the key but not always and when you select the right key sig in the dropdown menu tell BIAB "No" to changing the leadsheet.  Then save and all should look normal on the staff view. )

I use the Fakebook sheet page mostly when gigging more as a reminder as to what's programmed in BIAB than anything else, and often will put a bunch of songs into a set folder and use the random jukebox feature for an entire fast-paced set.  Most times I pick and choose from the folders, though as I go and as requests come in.  Use microsoft "Find" under the start menu, set to the BB folder only to find all instances of any requests in a hurry, can double-click a file from there and open it as long as BIAB is not in the SONG window.  It will crash if Findfile runs and selects a song while that pesky Song window is open...

Remember, I've been working with BIAB since the DOS days.  

However, this is actually the first time I have taken it out on a gig with the laptop.  

Seems to be working out very well, actually, I set up a 60W/channel Home Stereo Integrated amp and a set of boxes that contain a heavy duty 12" driver and a round dome tweeter in each and run the VSC in stereo along with my digi-piano in places where there is no grand piano.  All goes thru a mini mixer.  If the house is large I use the Line Out (Rec Out) of the little amp to go to the house PA as stereo even if the PA is mono and sums.  Usually use the Rec In jack on the house PA if they have one, otherwise a line in will do.  Tried using a demo of the new Super Quartet for a bit, funny thing the audiences seemed to respond better to the standard VSC in the jazz realm, so I saved some money there and went back to standard VSC.  I LOVED the sound of the Super Quartet, though, and may still pick it up sometime for recording purposes and my own playing here at home.  The standard VSC provides a pretty smooth mix of instruments and I think that is the difference there, the Super Quartet wants me to re-tweak the volumes, panning and other settings for many songs.  

All I can say is keep working with the program, keep learning things both musical and inside of BIAB, and never be satisfied with a style or a song, keep looking for ways to improcve it as you go along.  I will think of certain things while playing the tune live and use the BIAB MEMO pad to jot a note in there, "Expand ending with tag" or something like that to remind me, then will do a SaveAs to a folder I've named !work1 right there on the gig.  Opening that folder later reveals any songs that I have had ideas about plus a note to remind me when I get home and have time.  Then I can try the new addition etc and tweak it.  

As for sources, some have been downloaded and found usuable darn near as-is, most need tweaking when you download, I generally also expand the number of choruses for it is indeed a jazz gig.  I have entered a few from fakebooks and a lot from my own memory of how I play them, too.  

The first thing you should do, Ken, is find all the sites where others have stored BIAB files and download them.  Audition them and selectively save those that are interesting to you in a separate folder for re-visits, practice, etc.  This will build a rather large "repertoire" in no time if you apply to it daily or weekly even as time allows.

Here's my list for the Kid Dutch and his Blusicians ™:

This does not include many standards we do ( a lot are on Mac's tasty list)  nor does it include some originals and blues with impromptu lyrics which we are likely to do as the spirit moves.

Set lists for me have become more of a guideline or starting point.  To me the real ART in being  a leader in a live setting is knowing what tune the crowd NEEDS next.

Hey, I play that gig too!  

I once played for a minister who would leave the numbers of the hymns he wanted me to play on Sunday on my answering machine every Friday night.  

Sounded like I was a bookie, man:  

"Hi Mac, here's the numbers for this Sunday, 433, 275, 307 and 444, see you there and have a blessed day."  

Well, at least he didn't say, "trip fours"....      :loser:

marce, I once played a church that had a mouse living in the organ.  

the mouse would run through the bussbars under the keys and play the thing at the worst times...  

Then everybody would look at me.  

Finally opened the thing up and removed the unwanted little squatter, the minister's daughter would not let us kill it, we let it go outside in the churchyard.  

A week late the mouse had moved back into the organ and continued to play ad lib improvisations during the hymns.  Like a lot of self taught musicians, every once in a while he'd actually hit the right note...

Funny Happy

Well, a good training could be try to make a jazz improvisation following to our mouse friend... something said in this forum "there is not wrong chords, only chords that the player dont know how to end"

As a guitar player, I usually play whatí ever chords I'm given, the changes to songs are often similar, my main aim is to try to play tight rhythm and a half decent melodic solo.

I've always liked the bridge section to Girl from Ipanema, a good approach I was told about recently was to play around with:

| F# Maj arp | F# Jazz min arp | A Maj arp | A Jazz min arp|  
| CMaj arp   | C Dim arp          |BbMaj arp | C Dim arp      |

It works, try it!


If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention, than to any other talent.

Hey marce,

Same hear. Except we have more musicians! Sometimes all I get is the pianist turning to me and mouthing "Eb". Those times are actually quite fun as it forces one to LISTEN rather than just play by rote. EVERYBODY oughta have to play at church. Great place to learn.
