I worked up a short medley this weekend for a couple of this forum's biggest contributors, Rich and Bill Rayer, who are celebrating their birthdays today ... Happy Birthday, Guys!
With tongue firmly planted in cheek, I chose two Cleveland-esqe classics ... "Sweet 'Lorain'" (with apologies to Cliff Burwell and Mitchell Parish for changing "Lorraine" to "Lorain" (as in Lorain, Ohio ) and "Moon Over Parma" (another Cleveland suburb, and the original "Drew Carey Show" theme song, composed by Bob McGuire).
CLEVELAND AREA MEDLEY - "SWEET LORRAINE" and MOON OVER PARMA"
Besides being talented composers, arrangers, and educators, these cats also PLAY! I scored the medley for the brother's instruments: Bill on trumpet (cup mute on for "... Lorraine", and open on "... Parma"), and Rich on clarinet and tenor sax.
Piano, bass, and drums round out the combo, with an accordion added for "... Parma").
JaBB, GAS, with GPO clarinet and Session Drummer 3. Created in Sonar X1.
This is fun, light music ... easy swing and polka ... hope you all join in and enjoy the arrangement and once again, Happy Birthday Rich and Bill!
