Tonight was big band night, and we read Channel 1 Suite down. I hadn't done as much work on it as I wanted to last week (I only started feeling good again yesterday), but what little I'd done helped considerably.

Good news is that we got through it and only had to stop a couple of times. The chart perfectly maps the Mercy, Mercy recording, with the bass trombone solo at the end. When we finished John was happy, and it's obvious we can do this song. So we'll start working on it with an eye toward a potential show in October.

I got through it ok, but it wasn't as smooth and crisp as it needs to be, and my solos tonight were striving for mediocrity, but it will get better.

On a related note, we annually do a tribute to another big band at one of the venues we play. We've done Basie, Herman, and others, and are honoring Les Elgart next month. John said tonight that next year we'll do a Buddy Rich tribute, at which point our lead trumpet said, "We have to do West Side Story." Time to start working out.
