We're gonna make this very cold period nicer with some hot sounds. You'll hear fresh arrangement of Th. Monk's "Little Rootie Tootie". In 1959 his band performed leader's solo from trio recording, orchestrated for whole horn section. But Monk played another one, that is prepared by WG for our band. Premiere.
Nothing wrong happened. We played last Wednesday. Due to many Academy errands, there was no time for blogging. Another sub player did very well; Jareq Kaczmarczyk played tenor part's and did it very well! He was able to play the whole programm. Substituting for Bartek Noszka it's not easy job!
See you next time (Wed FEB/28/18)!
Hope to bring some new stuff.
Last Wednesday night was THE hot night! Our substitute lead player, trumpeter Rafal Walczak stormed through nine advanced arrangemets as skilled old goat. But this night had a special climax point. In the second set we we're visited by California-based singer, pianist, composer, producer, educator, etc. Mr Stanley Breckenridge. I was prepared for this with one arrangement written some hour before, so band had no chance to read it before date, but all cronies read it on sight beautifully. Stan sung "The Nearness Of You" beautifully warm and perfectly not missing his excellent expression. What a nite!
Tonight we'll strike again with regular personnel including Greg. Pałka on cymbals and drums.
You're warm welcome!
