“In the Mood” theater run, take two

This year wife Suzy (tenor, clarinet), friend Bob (bass bone), friend Bill (lead trumpet), and I (alto & bari sax, sop & bass clarinet) will be a part of the “In the Mood” big band. It is a theater show based on the USO performances of the past. Music, vocalists, comedian, and lots of fun. I wonder if the cat will run through the sax section again this year?

Here are some of the posts about that experience last year:

So as Suzy and I practiced this week we came across Duke’s rendition of the Nutcracker Suite. As the bari player, I’m just luvin’ it! (Thank you for throwing it in the mix Terry!)

The bass clarinet stuff is starting to come back. I only double on clarinet so I really have to work hard to make sure the rest of the band think it is my primary instrument.  Surprised smile

This is my bass clarinet so I’m halfway there—it practically plays itself!
