  1. You're right! That would be very in tents!
  2. Surely, you jest!
  3. Fox 59 part2. Is an 11 piece brass ensemble. Takes them a while to play as one.
  4. so will all the guys shave their left armpit in order to match the ladies? or will the ladies go E. Germany to match the guys? inquiring minds want to know..... First we had purple pants band with Crown, now Armpit Band from Texas.
  5. yeah, um.......armpits. Not a fan, Xmen of this design.
  6. Lisle Rockford Lebanon DEKALB [Metamora]
  7. SCV top 2 Scouts 11th
  8. duh....................Bloo
  9. No slam to the great Harpo as soloist, but as a "jazzer", there's just too many "devices" he incorporated into the arrangement i.e. cadenzas, uptempo, half-time swing push/company front, down ending [abbreviated] to be effective IMO. For my tastes, I'll take a Bluecoats arr. on a jazz tune/standard [bitd]. Sometimes just a couple spices in the recipe makes a better dish than the cupboard-full. [as an aside, when I taught and had a superb soloist, I always featured him/her on the field!]
  10. looks way cool!........but have thought all day on this question: What is a "rhythmical dreamer" to which they mention? ummm, yeah.
  11. Just think this is interesting regarding the source material. https://newrepublic.com/article/139816/breaking-elgars-enigma Also, The President's Own United States Marine Band performed a new orchestration of Enigma [by MSgt Donald Patterson] under the baton of Col. Michael Colburn three years ago. If it was good enough for him/them-then I'd say it is worthy of a musician's attention. Will search for a recording of this.
  12. Hey, if Dawson can sneak in his Regiment '03 Harmonic Journey........ Agree on Red as a favorite. Still contemplating my list.....it's kinda a combination of three already posted.
  13. go to the aforementioned twitter drums down under account & look
  14. Thought it best, as we all are aware that even though BD, that you brought up has won it all 5 times since'09, they've only earned the Ott twice during those eight years.
