Suzy and I spent a couple of months of practice and five weekend daze doing this year’s production of “In the Mood” with the Sky Notes Orchestra. How much fun is that!
Suzy covered tenor sax and clarinet and I played the alto sax, bari sax, and bass clarinet. The group of musicians, actors, and directors were a fun group. The show’s jokes and humor were penned by Terry Simon. For example, two snowmen were talking and one said, “Hey, do you smell carrots?” One of the musicians didn’t hear the snowman part of that joke and asked what the joke meant. That became a running joke throughout the production.
In this song Sam Samano performs as the lovely vocalist Carmen Delgado and Jamie Clark provides the delightful clarinet solo. “Why Don’t You Do Right” is a Kansas Joe McCoy composition here arranged by Mel Powell.
