With major advancements in keyboard technology producing lifelike samples of real instruments, these encompass full blown orchestras right down to small groups; the possibilities in musical creation are endless.
The Yamaha Tyros 5 digital workstation has enabled me to create these tracks of ballroom and sequence dance music. I have concentrated on what I feel are important decades in popular music, namely from the 1950s through to the 1970s, plus one great song from the 1980s ‘Flashdance… What a Feeling’.
These songs over the years have become standards, never losing their freshness. Even if you don’t dance, I hope you find these arrangements stimulating enough to wiggle your toes along to these infectious rhythms.
Happy Listening and Dancing!
