    Liza

    Hi All,

    I found another old arrangement of mine - no score, but all the parts neatly copied. This is Gershwin's 'Liza'. It uses GPO and a couple of percussion from GJBB. It's scored for 1 piccolo, 1 oboe, 1 bassoon, 1 horn, 1 percussion, harp and strings.

    I hope you like it.

    Regards,

    Jack

    Jack:
    Great chart. Real imaginative scoring. I could just see Fred & Ginger or Gene & Cyd doing one of their classic routines.

    Music from a bygone era. There was a certain magic to it.

    A very tasteful arrangement and good rendering.

    Thanks Steve and Phil for listening, and for your comments. Although some of the pop music of the last 30 years or so is good, I'm really quite unfamiliar with the bulk of it. I'm much more familiar with the songs that Steve has so masterfully arranged, and posted here. It's what I grew up with, and, in general, I think the quality is better - at least I like it better.

    Regards,

    Jack

    This I am sure was a fun piece to do and you did it well.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for listening, and for your comment. I wrote the arrangement so long ago that I can't remember if it was fun, but I'm sure it must have been.

    and rendered.

    Sweeeeet! I like it very much, Jack!

    One question to the use of the instruments: Is it mostly in legato mode (without using the hold-pedal to switch to staccatos) ?

    I mostly do legato by delaying the release of each note until the next note is started. Sometimes, I also use the pedal (cc64). I do staccato by shortening the notes. I also do non-legato by just leaving the natural attack and length of the sample. It depends on the instrument, and the effect desired. I know my legatos aren't sometimes smooth enough.

    I'm not sure what your question was, but I hope this answers it.

    Regards,

    Jack
