"the pride of Boston and the epitome of our culture"

The Waynesboro Symphony Orchestra is playing a version of this arrangement, with strings, at our concert Friday night. Everyone's shocked at how "dissonant" it is.

I'm really tired of the E.T., JFK, Schindler's List, and 1941 Williams' pieces we're playing. The Morton Gould one has grown on me.

Chinese Mambo

And this woman is still around! I learned about it from the excellent Afropop Worldwide show at http://www.afropop.org/radio/radio_program/ID/836 , which includes James Brown singing a miso soup ad in Japanese.For connections between African American music and Asia, they start with the 40s and work they way up to Wu Tang.
