Jazz Waltz ("Hope Renewed")

Sorry to have been out of pocket lately. Hope to be back here far more often! (You can take that as a good thing or a bad thing … hopefully good!)

Jazz Waltz

Creative Vision for the Track:
A light, jazzy waltz. I’ve been too wrapped up in all the discord in the country, my own depression, etc. for so long I forced myself to get back to something more upbeat and fun.

Composition Details (Tempo, Key, Main Chords etc):
Seventh chords / inversions
Deceptive cadences (e.g. ii-7, iii-7, iv-7, bvii7, Imaj9; Imaj9, bIII9, ii-7, V7b9, I)
Jazz combo at the core, backgrounds on the bridge incorporate strings and woodwinds
Opening vamp is Imaj9 to vi-7
Key of C – however final cadence is Dbmaj7 to Gbmaj9(#11) to Fmaj9(#11)
Rhythm - one to the bar feel

Main Instruments used:
Logic Pro X Libraries
Spitfire BBC Core

Hope Renewed - Stan Bann (ASCAP)


Great track Stan! When it comes to holiday music, I’ve always preferred these smooth jazz instrumental versions more than anything. This was well done!

Happy Holidays!


Thanks, Matt! Glad you enjoyed it!

Happy Holidays to you and yours as well!
