Here is Django Reinhardt’s “Minor Swing” in (one of its) original version as performed by Django himself – including his great improvisation but, arranged for and performed with clarinet. The band comes literally out of the box, i.e. “Band-in-a-Box”, but with its relatively new RealBand feature sounds pretty cool, given its only a computer fed with the changes! I transferred everything to Cubase and recorded the clarinet in there. That way, I could do some minor editing and mixing.

If anybody listens to this thinking: “hmm, this would make a great idea for a band”, let me know and we’ll give it a try! Until then, the “Band” is available as MP3 as a play along and the arrangement can be shared as a Sibelius or pdf file.
