Hello, good morning, and welcome to the the Saturday Morning News Post!
I am writing this SMNP from back home in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia and I gotta say, it’s great to be back!
Readers, this week I have a special surprise for you… a new video up on YouTube! Well, okay, it’s not a surprise to the few mighty “Danderfans” who Google my name every morning with their cup of coffee in hand,… to those people I can only say, you may have a little too much time on your hands, but hey, I LOVE the enthusiasm, thank you,… GO TEAM DANDERFANS!!
So this week, why don’t you spend the 2minutes usually allotted to reading my witty/uninformed musings from a jazz clarinetist and watch the new video here. And, if you feel like it, drop a little comment in the YouTube comment section. You’re entertained, I break the 50 views mark,… it’s a win-win folks!
Oh, but first I’ll set it up for you: This clip is from a gig I did at The Cellar jazz club last August playing music by contemporary New Orleans brass bands but arranged for a smaller group with B3 organ. It’s really, really, fucking fun party music, and we had a blast giving it a shot. The song you’ll hear on YouTube is called “New Funk,” written by the fantastic Stooges Brass Band.
Thanks in advance for checking out the video everybody and enjoy your week!
