This is, for now, the last Mumcast from Phoenix AZ. It's back to our studio next time! While rummaging about in my dad's stuff, I found a CD, mastered from old vinyl, of my high school jazz and concert bands. They were quite good. Our directors, Herman Matlock and Raymond Grivetti, were superb music educators, the kind every school should have.
It's school time again. Does your school district support the teaching of art and music? I suggest you lobby like hell if they do not. I had unforgettable learning and personal experiences via band in Hobart, Indiana. Everyone should have that opportunity.
This podcast contains 2 pieces from the jazz band, and ends with a patriotic classic from the concert band and choir. They are from 1970-72. Ancient stuff, kids. No cable, no cell phones, and we rode our pet Dino to school!
