'Late Night Jazz Vol 3' by Anthology sets a new standard for Jazz sample packs, bringing you 20GB of world-class recordings in five complete arrangements inspired by Jazz from the late 70's and 80's and the late nineties/early 2000's underground Lounge scene. From Hip Hop to House and Progressive Rock, these kits cover a variety of Jazz sub-genres, taking you on a free-flowing journey through the progression of this ever-evolving genre. Includes world-class professional saxophone performances from Leo Janssen.
In the third installment of this best-selling series, the saxophone takes center stage, performed by acclaimed Dutch Saxophonist, Leo Janssen
. Of course, these steller sax samples are accompanied by silky-smooth melodic elements and intricate percussion to create a sonic atmosphere fit for dim lighting, cigar smoke and top-shelf whiskey.
Compositionally this pack is right at the top of the game. In the first kit, named 'Looking Back', you'll be greeted with gentle piano, guitars, walking basslines, and of course, soulful sax riffs as Leo shines brightly, especially during the long intro of this track. The second kit features a more urban beat, in which Leo riffs the tenor sax with British legend, Dick Parry in mind. The third kit consists of a compositional tribute to Jazz guitarist Pat Metheny and Rock artist Todd Rundgren, mingling two styles to create a composition that beautifully captures the essence of genres.
In the fourth kit, Leo shines once again, this time on his soprano sax, paying homage to Branford Marsalis, an avatar of contemporary Jazz excellence. The fifth kit, named 'Go Ask Leo' delivers a fusion style Jazz – the only pure form of the genre that survived the seventies and eighties.
All files are labelled to indicate which bars each loop occupies, so you can easily find the part you need. The inclusion of OMF and AAF files allows you to delve deep into the structure of each song and modify them on the fly. And of course every file is key and tempo-tagged for seamless integration into ACID, Garageband, Logic, Ableton, and more.
All content is meticulously edited by our Anthology in-house sound engineer, John van der Lugt.

MIDI Files Included:
'Late Night Jazz Vol 3' includes MIDI files for the majority of musical phrases heard in each Kit, allowing you to seamlessly mix your favourite synths and samplers with the sounds contained in the pack.
This sample library also comes with unlooped/tail versions allowing you to end a phrase with the decay of the instrument, rather than relying on fade-outs or abrupt ends.
OMF and AAF Files:
With the included OMF and AAF files you can import each kit into your sequencer so each audio file has it's own channel. This allows you to restructure the original song, or add your own complimentary instrumentation. We offer you wet versions with reverb tails and delays but we have also included "dry versions" without any of those. In the dry OMF and AAF files you'll hear what the musicians heard on their headphones while tracking their parts in the studio. These dry mixes are highly educational as well as inspirational for all of you. Whether you are a seasoned producer or a young talent just starting off your musical career.
