    Tribute To A Fine Person...

    Y'all,

    Danny Williams contributes much to this music forum in many ways and
    besides being a talented musician/composer/arranger/teacher, he is a genuinely nice dude.

    I just wrote an all-brass tribute to him. The instrumentation consists of a gaggle of trumpets, "French" horns, 'bones and one tuba.

    Here is my work called "Mister Danny". I hope that he doesn't mind my posting it.

    Regards,

    Larry

    A fine tribute, Larry, to a fine man.

    Danny Williams is assuredly one of our most accomplished
    musicians and composers; and like so many gifted with
    so much ability, he's a kind, decent, generous man who
    gives back unstintingly to his fellow musicians.

    And the guy's a hoot, too. Ask him to tell you the one
    about the three nuns and the Ferris wheel.

    My best,



    David

    Yes, Danny is one of the best!

    I want to hear about the nuns and the ferris wheel. too, though. And if its a joke that Steve Sample (sosmus) doesn't already know, it earns extra points (he is an encyclopedia of puns and jokes, I have found). Meanwhile, I ought to listen too..... pending....

    Hi Larry,

    this song is full of good cheer, like Danny. I kept picturing a jazz band playing on a street corner in New Orleans... thanks for posting.

    Larry,

    As I responded to you in my email, this was a wonderful, unexpected and humbling surprise. I was totally caught off-guard in a very, very positive way. What a tremendous feeling to be honored by a "forum legend" and highly regarded composer! And to have it bestowed with another outstanding Alexander special made it all that much more of an honor. Much, much appreciation to you, Mister Larry!

    One cool Texan saluting another cool Texan...excellent.

    I especially like the second section.

    Since both of you are so talented and so deserving of accolades, I will refrain from any comment about the lamentable absence of euphonium in this otherwise-magnum opus. Certainly that must just have been an oversight on the part of the composer, albeit one that bars the piece's entry into the pantheon of the world's greatest music.

    When my career as an escalator is over (ask etLux), I want to be Larry Alexander when I grow up.

    Darn! I did forget the baritone horns, didn't I? I'm not worthy! I'm not worthy!

    Don't grow up to be Larry Alexander, please! The world doesn't need another crabby, persnickety, ancient dude who has the appearance of always wearing a Halloween mask!

    Thanks for your message, Mr. Hoosier.
