You've Changed (guitar/vocal)

January 17, 2007 12:01 AM

This is a very rough recording (of quite possibly my favorite ballad ever) from a rehearsal in LA a year or so ago. I was working on possible CD repertoire with jazz guitarist extraordinaire, the oh-so-adorable Mr. Barry Zweig. (Written in 1942 by Bill Carey & Carl Fischer, You've Changed has been beautifully recorded by Dexter Gordon, Billie Holiday, Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Nat King Cole, Kay Starr, Diana Ross, Charlie Shavers & Eva Cassidy, among others.)

Great guitarist indeed. Lovely song and great rendition. I love those intimate informal performances. And about your voice, what can I say? I'm a declared fan. It's really cool that you started posting here.

This is such a great performance of a great ballad it's a shame the track is as noisy as it is. I ran it through adobe auditions noise filters and added a bit of dither to see how it would sound and was surprised at how well it came out. (as with all FFT based noise filters there's a bit of aliasing distortion noticeable in places but overall it's quite clean). I can e-mail the cleaned up track if you like!

Keep 'em coming!

I would LOVE that! I just don't know how to do it myself. I used my cheapo version of Amadeus to amplify it a bit and then convert it to an mp3... I'm not sure how to do much else, really. Well, other than sing. ;)

WOW! Niiiiice! Thank you so much!

Perfect. I downloaded the other one and it did sound too hissy without the compression that the flash player applies. I'm downloading the new one. Kudoz, TWR.

Yea, I'm a fan too. Thanks TWR. miss l, you nail it. It's great hearing you with that very smooth guitar too.

It's really difficult for me to listen to modern versions of standards, it's kinda like watching American Idol. But not you, you are right on!
