Interesting, it works in the UK but not Germany.

Chris, I emailed you an mp3 of Too Little Time and St Louis Blues March from the video.

A wonderful rendition by the way and thanks for sending me it.........  Sing it!

Great solo Doug, safe to say that wasn't the Yammy 354 I hear so much about...even though they would have loved a solo in Japan on a Yamaha   Good!

Thanks.

The camera crew followed us around on our 3 week trip, and that video was shown on Japanese TV.  I had a copy but lost it in our fire ten years ago.  I think it was put on YouTube by our sound engineer at the time.

Trivia:  Because the Air Force had another band stationed in Japan, it was almost impossible for us to do a trip like that.  The only reason we were able to do it was that the entire cost of the trip was paid by a Japanese businessman.

Very nice solo!! Exactly how I want to play it. (Have to be in another life... :D ) hehe...

It's kind of very clean and clear everything you do. No stress and beautiful sound. Easy to understand you and follow you.
I really enjoyed it!  Good! Good!

Doug -

Yes, very fine playing.  Is Dave Steinmeyer in the section?  During that era, didn't he usually play the bone solo part on "Too Little Time"?

Steinmeyer retired at the end of 1988, leaving an opening in the section that I auditioned for in the beginning of 1989.  Rick Lillard moved from 2nd to lead and the opening was for 2nd trombone.  Rick is a great jazz player but he didn't do the ballads.

I would have loved to play in the section with Dave, but that didn't happen.  Fortunately I lived in the DC area my whole life, so I grew up hearing Dave and then played some gigs with him, long before I ever considered auditioning for the band.

If you can find the Bill Potts record "555 Feet High" from 1985, I'm in the section with Dave and Rick, also John Jensen and Lee Gause if I remember right.

Nice work!

And someone did a nice Bob Flanigan style solo along with the Four Freshman style group just prior.

That looked like an Williams 6 to me.  Beautiful playing, Doug (as everything I've heard of yours is).

I really enjoyed the retro uniforms the band was wearing.  How did you get permission to do that?

Wow Doug thanks for sharing! I'm also perplexed by the uniforms...Wondering if you guys stopped at any bases in the Pacific along the way and wore those uniforms around base...I imagine you'd get more than a few sideways glances. I'm currently stationed at Hickam AFB in Hawaii and I don't think premier bands make out this way any more these days.

That "uniform" costume is one of the outfits the Note uses.

We were lucky we were sponsored for that trip because there's no way the AF would have sent us.
