Styles Disk #27: Jazz n Pop TM

Styles for Band-in-a-Box


Introduction and Overview
Thank you for purchasing Styles Disk #27 with 27 great new Jazz n Pop styles for Band-in-a-Box.

Note: As these styles use some of the newer Stylemaker features, you must have Band-in-a-Box Version 11.0 (or
higher) for these styles to work properly.

We hope you like this latest assortment (or Jazz n Pop) of 27 styles in Styles Disk #27. Youll find styles in the
Pop, Rock, Latin, Jazz and Folk genres. Weve included a number of Jazz styles many of which, as you requested, use the
brushes drum kit (#41). In addition, 8 of these styles make use of the Half-note Sax-type voicings feature. These are
drop-2 horn, piano or guitar-type voicings that will (for example) play 4 different voicings from one 2-bar chord. This is
the next logical extension of the intelligent guitar voicings. Speaking of that, from now on, all our guitar styles use these
smart voicings feature and for this reason, we have ceased identifying them with the ! character. The styles cover the
range from Bebop, Folk-Pop, Bossa, Slow Swing Ballads, Jazz guitar trio comping, Sax Section with rhythm section for the
big-band sound, slow 16th styles featuring multiple guitars (strumming and arpeggios) and pads and much more.

As always, we thank you for your many excellent suggestions as posted in the Styles wishlist forum.

If youre interested in editing or tweaking Styles or even making them from scratch, be sure to check out the
Secrets of the Stylemaker Audio-Visual CD.

One of the easiest ways to explore the new styles is from the select style window (press the STY button). If you
scroll to near the end of the categories list on the left, you can select the Jazz n Pop 27 category, then highlight the
individual styles and press the Load song demo button. Its a good idea to un-check the Auto-change Melody instrument
so that youll hear the correct demo melody instrument. More detailed information about each style is available by pressing
the Memo button of the Demo tune. The Demo tunes for these styles follow the same naming convention as the styles
themselves. For example, the DEMO song for SHIMMER.STY is SHIMMER.MGU.

By all means visit the PG Music home page on the Web at www.pgmusic.com. There are lots of interesting
downloads, demos, magazine and customer reviews, including streaming audio-visual program tutorials and radio
interviews and more. Review your favorite products or stop by the Styles wish-list page, where you can request specific
styles or leave feedback and suggestions thats how we stay in touch with you. So drop in and check it out.

We hope you enjoy these Jazz n Pop styles.

Have fun.
