January 6, 2018

Word on the street is that we are back at the Hook and Ladder (Minnehaha Ave. just south of Lake St.) this coming Saturday, January 13, 1:00-6:00 pm

Work-on tunes: the usual
Add-a-Tune: Move (II-280)

We're back for the New Year, 2018. There to get things kicked off were Sam (bass, trumpet, trombone), Jack K (trumpet), Steve C (piano), and Steve H (alto). Also arriving before the vocal portion were Wes (tenor), Waymond (bass). Serdar arrived before yours truly had to depart, but was not set up until I had to leave. Eventually, Carl (trombone) and Annie (vocals) were on the way in as your scribe was on the way out.

After some mix-ups with the folks at TowerLight were sorted out, we finally got started with the first call from Jack K, My Romance (I-289). We followed a similarly light treatment on Steve C's choice, Easy Living (I-127). Next we did Sam's weekly add-on; this week it was Triste (I-417). Wes took the next one, pulling out Au Privave (I-37). Your truly had his eye set this week on one he had not heard for a long time, Bohemia After Dark (II-63). Jack K opted for Indiana (II-201). Your scribe had to head out following that one, so the rest of this account is based on (somewhat ambiguous) notes taken by others.

It would seem that Steve C requested Rosetta (II-332). After that it is hard to discern who called for which tunes, but it is clear that participants did play and sing the following: It Could Happen To You (II-206), Jumpin' With Symphony Sid (II-218), I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance (II-173), The Folks That Live On The Hill (II-137), Get Out Of Town (II-148), I Remember You (II-149), Dindi (II-105), Saint James Infirmary (II-338), Watch What Happens (II-413), and The Nearness of You (II-285)
