From the Top returned to its broadcast home, Jordan Hall yesterday. Great kids, all. We head to Danville, KY for another show today (weather permitting).
In other FTT news, I’ve been asked to contribute to the show’s growing presence on YouTube, hopefully in some arranging capacity. I’m pretty sure they were looking for Radiohead, but in consideration of the current regime, I thought it best to do an arrangement of Woody Guthrie’s This Land for a quintet of our international roster of alums who are immigrants or children of immigrants. Most likely, incorporation of the multivarious national anthems of our kids on the project will be integral to the arrangement. Shooting in NYC in April.
Enjoy the enclosed transcription of a Keith Jarrett performance of this iconic song.
