    "Darn That Dream"

    http://www.box.net/shared/static/culh43m1qt.mp3

    This arrangement was written for a former student that is now living in Seattle. She and her husband (trumpet player) have put together an 18 piece jazz band that they perform with once a month a Tula's (jazz night club.)
    There is no vocal so you're on your own but I think if you know the tune you'll be able to follow the chart.

    We miss you around here, Steve.

    I don't know the piece, but it is arranged in way that seems like it was designed to be just as it is.

    I assume you are still not working in Cubase. If I knew the program, I would help you get it set up. But then I get lost in the Mac world. I pound on Apples and make applesauce, so I would be of little use there.

    Great work my friend. Don't be such a stranger.

    Ron:
    It's good to "be back" even though I didn't go anywhere. Cubase is still a mystery but I've been up to my ears with commissions, I've done about a dozen new charts for the singer in Seattle, got a new dog and am woodworking again. So much to do and so little time.
    I wish there was someone within driving distance that I could go to for some "hands on" help with Cubase but that appears to be very unlikely.
    Thanks for your nice comments. I thought about putting in the lead line but a good singer would "play" with it as it should be so I'd rather leave it one's imagination.

    Nice one, with the Sample touch. I am very familiar with this old tune, having played it many times in the past. You did it justice.

    Fine muted trumpet and flute work. The strings aren't chopped liver either.

    Even though I hate you for being so talented...WELCOME BACK!

    At my age, it's nice to be anywhere. Thanks for your usual support and kind words. I'm going to try to better my attendance in the future and not play hookie (hookey, hooky, et al ----------.)

    If you add up our ages and then combine our diverse talents (or skills), we would then be one old musician.
    Thanks for your ever encouraging words.

    Hello to you Steve!
    I am a little new around here and have not heard anything quite like this, up till now. You demonstrate an excellent knowledge of arranging for a jazz orchestra! I am amazed at your skill-set, very melodic and smooth - most enjoyable!!
    Thank you for sharing and I hope to hear more!!!
    Take care,
    sd cisco

    I'll put together a few (million) questions and send them to you. As you know, I do my scores using NI Kontakt2 and Finale with the GJBB and GPO (notation instruments.) I want to enter my midi scores into Cubase and "tweak" dynamics, balance, etc. to get a nice demo. Can we talk? What is "pm?" Email? Snail mail? please advise.
    Thanks for your offer to help. Maybe we should start a "WW" (Wrinkled Writers) division.
