Click here for the Song Of The Day.

Most days it's just 1 selection. Today it's a medley of snappy numbers performed on the march by the Central RAF Band.

Enjoy.

Nice!

During the summer in Modesto we have a free band concert that plays in a local park. It's really cool; everyone puts out blankets and brings a picnic dinner. Some picnics are very elaborate with chaffing dishes, etc and some are sandwiches, but it is fun! This tradition has been going on for over ninety years and is called Moband (my daughter plays in it) and they play all kinds of music but this song reminds me of the songs they play most! Thank you!:)

Listen for the nice baritone saxophone solo lick beginning just before the 1-minute mark.

Thanks, Alan. I love the Carpenters and think the world lost a great voice when Karen died.

Like that song from Annie Get Your Gun. It's fun.

Alan, how do you pick your songs? Do you just browse you tube or do you have something specific in mind for each day?

Picking Songs -- From Sublime To Ridiculous.

Alan, how do you pick your songs? Do you just browse you tube or do you have something specific in mind for each day?
I mainly search U-Tube for songs I've already been thinking of.

Sometimes, though, I stumble across a song that's so good or so odd or so funny, etc., that I add it to the list even though I had not previously thought of it.

U-Tube is not my only only source -- though it almost is.

Before I started putting daily FaceBook songs on TUG-BBS, I included 1 on FaceBook that comes from a web site operated by bigtime fans of odd-meter music. Click here for that number (Arcturas, by Don Ellis), Song Of The Day for September 1, 2009, on FaceBook.

The web site for that is Odd Time Obsessed Dot Com.

Click here for the rhythmically complex Song Of The Day -- & marvel at the relaxed feel that these performers maintain all through the underlying lumpy rhythm.

The Cathedral Brass (an ensemble in which I am a sometimes substitute & extra player) has ambitiously included a Bob Curnow arrangement of that tune in its rehearsal folder, with the idea in mind of working it up for performance in a special concert.

Getting the rhythmic lick down is 1 thing. Getting solid with the tune that overlies that lick is something else again.

The basic rhythm is in alternating measures of 12/8 & 10/8.

The 12/8 measures are subdivided in 8th-note groupings of 3 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 2.

The 10/8 measures are subdivided 3 + 3 + 2 + 2.

Two of those together make the basic rhythmic groove of the piece -- 3 + 2 + 3 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 3 + 2 + 2

Basically, the underlying rhythm amounts to a measure in lumpy 5 followed by a measure in lumpy 4, with those 2 bars repeated over & over.

To get the feel, which matches the opening rhythmic handclaps at the start of the U-Tube video, you can think or speak the words...

Florida, Georgia, Florida, Georgia, Georgia -- Florida, Florida, Georgia Georgia

Each word is 1 beat. The rhythm is lumpy (i.e., uneven) because some beats are 3 syllables & others are 2 syllables, with the emphasis in each beat on the 1st syllable (e.g., Florida, Georgia).

The handclaps match that rhythm, but in a sly way, with no clap on the 1st syllable, more like...

[ ] clap-clap, [ ] clap, [ ] clap-clap, [ ] clap, [ ] clap -- [ ] clap-clap, [ ] clap-clap, [ ] clap, [ ] clap

For variety, there are some 8/8 measures (2+2+2+2) & some conventional 12/8 measures (3+3+3+3).

An extremely interesting tune -- will be satisfying & rewarding to work it up to performance quality for concert.

The essential magic ingredient = practice, practice, practice.
