We probably all have a "Someday Project." This is a work that you have thought about, fantasized about, for a long time, but have never gotten to. Maybe it's a bit overwhelming, or you just haven't found a "round tuit" yet.
I have two, sort of. One I started ten years agos and have meant to get back to ever since. The other I've not started yet.
The first is a one-act musical in swing style intended for churches to perform at Christmas. I started it ten years ago with one of my best friends who was writing the book. We quit when the church we were writing it for split and neither of the resultant churches had any musical that Christmas. We just never got back to it, and have lost some of the original material. I also wasn't sure how I would create the performance tracks, having never heard of JABB at that time (I don't think it existed yet). Anyway, I intend to get back to it with a vengeance once I finish my current CD project.
My real "Someday Project" is something I just conceived of last year. I want to take my favorite piece of music, Holst's The Planets Suite (I know, not a very original favorite piece, but I can't help what I like) and arrange it for Jazz Big Band.
This project has occupied my thoughts much, lately. As I listen to the work, I can hear the various sections of the band playing the different parts. The harmonies would remain similar, but with jazz extensions and substitutions. The rhythm would definitely be funkier, and I can hear much of the rhythm section.
That being said, this project is somewhat overwhelming to me. The amount of work that this will take is huge, and I have so many things I want to do. But, someday I will do this.
So, what's your "Someday Project?"
