man that took me back to being a kid. I remember having to go to bed just as that show was coming on the black and white TV. That had to be alot of fun to do. The piano playing is so cool in that piece.
The camaraderie and encouragement on this bulletin board is just the greatest.
jaynkate01, jsp2, oldbob, joaz, DPDAN, Jonny Lost and etLux--Thank you so much for all the kind words and encouragement. It's a special thing, to be able to share music online like this with fellow musicians. Reading your responses made my day. I thought the Perry Mason would trigger pleasant memories--glad my grittier-than-the-original version did just that.
I'm surprised there aren't more GPO/JABB pieces posted. To combine the two programs is what got me excited to get JABB this Christmas. I've worked with GPO over a year now.
I'm glad the idea of doing interpretations of TV themes is appealing. I'm in Jazz kindergarten really, so the relative simplicity of the Perry Mason theme appealed to me.--Peter Gunn!--Good idea! How about the theme from Mike Hammer--nice smoky 6/8 piece in that pop/jazz category.
I just had to add to this thread to thank you all for your positive reinforcement. I'm looking forward to posting my original pieces to share with the group here. I've tested the water, and it feels very warm--so I shall return!
