Nellie Sings Again!

This is a test of the new virtual instruments.
Even though it's just a cover, it's the first new Nellie 'recording' in 12 years!

 

Fly Me
To the Moon

 

 

This is ONLY A WARMUP .. ONLY A TEST!  Nellie's old soundfonts have been replaced by Garritan Jazz and Big Band and Garritan Personal Orchestra ensembles. Not zillion-dollar professional samples but way beyond what we had. And now you're listening to the first test "recording."

This is NOT my arrangement! This arrangement is by Sammy Nestico and was programmed by Gary Wachtel. It's not my style at all. But it seemed like a good workout for my new instruments. So even though I didn't arrange the band, I did program the instruments themselves, and Nellie, and mixed it. It was a lot of work, and I have a lot more work ahead of me, as I get my own arranging skills backup to scratch, and keep twiddling around looking for that magic warm 1930s band sound I'm going to need.

But the important fact is still, Nellie and the Drummers are back at work. And with a MAJOR UPGRADE.

Back to the computer for more training.

Quoting Michele Borg:
I'm just curious. Did Nellie and The Drummers ever perform on Second Life?

FYI...you probably hear this all the time but I'm a huge fan of Omaha The Cat Dancer.


And, I'm a huge fan of Nellie and the Drummers! Nice to meet you! :D

No, Nellie never was on Second Life. Nellie began as a 3D animation project, but the animation part was too daunting for me to do alone back in 2000. She had a website, and that was that. But Nelie is having a 'second life' of her own now, as i'm trying to finish a third album.
