    "Hello, Young Lovers" R. Rodgers GJBB

    "Hello, Young Lovers" R. Rodgers GJBB

    This is my idea of a show opener (or closer.) I'm going to have to fire the drummer; he keeps good time but his solo fills sound someone kicking over a garbage can. I hoping this one is audible.
    When I first did this chart, it included a French Horn quartet, so listen for the "Till Eulenspiegel" quote toward the end.

    This is a great chart, Steve, and beautifully and swingingly rendered.

    I really enjoyed this rendition. Your harmonies, rhythms, and instrumentation are all first rate; this really swings!
    Thanks for posting.

    This falls under "Now something completely different". Taking any distance from Bach (with that new face), Debussy, Ravel, me Raymond and other well known composer here on this forum. And I liked it, you have it in your fingers, blood, or whatever. Yes, fire that drummer. He should have inserted some rolls at syncopation time. Great stuff, though.

    You are just working up a storm and each piece is better than the last. Cool!!

    I thought you were retired from teaching and yet you keep teaching us how to do it.

    Well done

    Eugene, Raymond & Ron:

    Thank you for listening. I've always loved taking old standards and putting them in a new, or least different setting. Maybe it's because they have withstood the test of time having all of the elements of music: rhythm, melody, harmony and form.

    Raymond: I was fortunate that I always had a good drummer so I could just write "fill" or "kick" or "lead in," etc. Trying to remember what they did is easy enough, but notating it is a bear.

    Ron: I have all of the "parts" to Audacity and Lame but too many bells and whistles to connect so I'm still struggling but I do think there is a light at the end of the "funnel."

    Really great chart, Steve.

    Always like your modulations and tempo changes.
    The ending to this is particularly great. Another
    great addition to the "Sample" library.

    A very nice big band rendition.

    I took the time to research this unfamiliar tune for me and checked out the several versions on iTunes.

    It looks like Bobby Darin first recorded an uptempo version of this one.

    Having the basic lyrics in your head probably helps but I can verify that this arrangement works nicely for a pure instrumental.

    Rhap2 & Fastlane:

    Thanks for listening and commenting.
    Jack: Are you a closet Alabama fan?
    Fastlane: I was not aware that Bobby Darin had STOLEN my idea before I even thought of it. It's tough to be original, but now you know why I don't like to compose--somebody else has probably already written my piece. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!
