    I would be grateful if anyone could answer the two following questions.

    1) Has anybody played the Freeh arragement of A Glenn Miller Suite? If so is it any better than Miller Magic or Glenn Miller Special? Any thoughts appreciated, as the cheapest retail price is £56.00. Don't want to buy it for the band unless it is any good.

    2) Does anyone know who publishes "The Essence of Time" by Peter Graham? I have tried Gramercy music, but without any luck. In addition I have tried all my usual outlets to no avail.

    Cheers

    LBB

    After the geography lesson, let's get back to music, and has anyone played the Glenn Miller selection?

    Yes, indeed I have, LBB! ;)
    If I remember rightly it has rip-roaringly high Solo Horn a la Alto Sax all the way through! (Note to self: Find 'rangefinder' mouthpiece when I get home tonight! ;) )

    And If Im right, isnt that the piece that has 1st Bari freeform Jazz solos all the way through, causing consternation to anyone with elvis-like tendencies???... :D

    Cracking set of pieces, should go down a storm in concerts/parks! :clap:

    PS Please can we purchase 'The Essence of Time' VERY quickly, before we start looking at Mvt 3 of Year of the Dragon! :oops:

    Had a chance to look through it myself, and found it to be a very good "arrangement" of the Miller pieces. For arrangement read " Direct lift from the big band parts". As my learned recruitment officer has stated, it is pitched at a rather nasty range for the saxhorn family, but is the best version of any Miller that I have played. Shame our band can only swing when we're winning.

    PS
