Big Band Jazz Time in St. Louis

Recommended Posts

Rehearsals are finally over for our Summer concert season for the Jazz Big Band (well OK, one more to go). I'll be playing two concerts this week, one at a theater on Wednesday evening (4/25), and one at a college campus on Sunday afternoon (4/29).

 

At the concert of Wednesday you will also witness the world premiere and debut performance of my first Big Band arrangement. I've brought an original song from my 70's rock band out of mothballs and given it the "treatment". I had to write 18 different instrumental parts, plus two vocal parts for the song. Now let's just hope it doesn't crash and burn.... Also on the program are two more original arrangements, one by our female vocalist ("girl singer" in jazz terms), and one by our former band director.

 

Come one, come all, from the St. Louis region. It would be nice to meet some more of the local forumites.

Larry,

I wish you the utmost success in your upcoming performances.

I'll be forwarding my brother-in-law your gigs.

He'll be moving to St. Louis soon and will probably want something to do.

Good luck to ya'.
