Our big band is at a point where there's nothing we're working toward, no definite shows or gigs coming up. So John has had us reading a lot of new music. Mostly he'll pass out a chart, we play it, and if he thinks it's pretty good then he'll ask our opinions (if he doesn't like it, it's off the list). He also sent everybody in the band a list of all 1400 charts in the library, and people are free to request charts, which I have not done (yet).

So a couple of days ago he emailed me asking if I wanted to read Rich's "Channel 1 Suite" the next night. My response was yes, but please let me work with the chart for a week first to get comfortable with the time changes.

Got the chart yesterday, and next week we're going to play my absolute favorite Rich opus. Given the choice I'd rather play this than West Side Story. It's not going to sound like Rich, but I can't wait for next Wednesday. The band has been really wailing lately, and the thought of getting to kick them through that arrangement gives me goosebumps.



The presence of those seeking the truth is infinitely preferable to the presence of those who think they've found it. - Terry Pratchett
