The Dissonance Returns (2006)

Last year I put together a pickup group, mostly of musicians from Microsoft for the United Way/King County day of caring. It was the best band I’ve ever played with and for an amateur, very exhillerating. I called us the Dissonance.
This year I figured I couldn’t pull it off again until Brad e-mailed me to ask me if we were going to do it again. I got the buzz and it took off. We played the following songs:
  • Take Five – Paul Desmond
  • Summertime – George Gershwin
  • On Green Dolphin Street – arranged by Victor Lopez
  • Groovin’ Hard – Don Menza
  • Misty – Erroll Garner
  • Blues in the Night – arranged by Calvin Custer
  • Tastes Like Chicken – Kris Berg
  • Jumpin’ at the Woodside – Count Basie
  • Jungle Boogie – arranged by Victor Lopez
  • Burritos to Go – Victor Lopez
  • Harlem Nocturne – Earle Hagen
  • Night and Day – Cole Porter

I’ve added a photo album that is featured as the primary to this site right now. Enjoy!
