Correction: On page 3 of CD insert, for the personnel listing for Tallahassee Swing Band, John Moore is listed instead of Carl Morse. Carl is the regular trombone player in that chair but was hidden from view in the photo I used for reference. I foolishly trusted to faulty memory on this. My embarrassed apology goes to Carl.

Odds and ends:

No Place to Go This is the audio output from Finale's cheezie synth of the Real Marching Band (Bourbon Street Style) Arrangement of the Coda for Nola's Muse.

Hymn to Opportunity - synth This is the audio output from Finale's cheezie synth of this chart - the form is correct.

Hymn to Opportunity - piano/vocal This is the piano score. Please feel free to print it and learn the song!!!

Nola's Muse - Piano/vocal - I would be honored for you to learn the song.

No Place To Go - Piano/Vocal - (coda for Nola's Muse)

NOLA Swings - The Big Band Score: Written for the Tallahassee Swing Band!

NOLA Swings - synth: This is the audio output from the MIDI filie saved from Finale from the Score to NOLA Swings that was imported into Sonar and played back through the Roland Virtual Sound Canvas. (Still don't swing like people, but it does get most of the notes right.) 

NolaSwings - First Reading - Tallahassee Swing:  Recorded by Carl Morse at the American Legion, Lake Ella, Tallahassee, FL. Yea, there was a bit of a trainwreck at the end, but pretty damn good - remember, the band was seeing the chart for the first time! Thanks to the band!

Nola Swings at the 16th Jazz & Blues Festival, Tallahassee Museum: Recorded by TDGiddings. Second reading, the guys nailed it pretty damn good! How wonderful to have such friends.

Nola Swings at the American Legion - Jun 26 -  this is the third reading.
