Happy Rose Parade Day:

Here in SoCal, watching The Rose Parade ("live" on VHS - no TIVO $$) I'm thinking of times long ago in the almost late 60s . . . and The Wonderment of Music.

From college, one particular afternoon Theory class still plays vivid in memory. Mrs. Fengler was late that day, so we sat around and just shared about the direction we hoped our music education would lead us. We had yet to learn about the many, many Strange Rivers ahead.

Most planned to teach; some looked longingly a few miles away to the LA Phil; some yearned to be Violetta or Mimi - or Paglacci or The Barber; quite a few yearned for the Boards of Broadway; one lady figured on heading to the Deep South and wrote accordingly; one guy sculpted his music for Delano and Caesar Chavez, and I was poised to enter the ranks of the still young Blue-Eyed Soul choir - on Ray Charles Piano, of course.

One fellow stands out bold this particular Rose Parade Morning. He spent his time (even in PE somehow) drawing schematics of his Dream Marching Band. His heart was firmly fixed on the legacy of John Phillip Souza. He'd use page upon page, diagramming configurations. What he was doing was as revolutionary to marching bands as what Glenn Miller did for big bands when he reconfigured basic stage setups to create different ambient sounds.

Music is a Performing Art, but it does take a teacher. Mrs. Fengler had spent years in the violin section of the MGM Studio Orchestra before teaching. She encouraged us all to get out and "do it - not just learn it!"

So: some to the classroom; some to the concert hall; some to The Boards; some to The Barricades . . . and one Wannabe Blue Eyed Baritone to the US Army (courtesy of the "Greetings from the President . . . ) Sorta sounds like a certain JS/KT song . . .

I don't believe I want to know the outcome of We Twenty. I prefer to remember us in our Dreams. Never saw any of 'em again anyway. But here - this moment - watching Mama doze as the USC Marching Trojans pass in review, I feel no regret for the Baritone/Piano Guy. I've been blessed to make my Daily Bread as a working musician (even when it was really *bread* not *Bread*) all these years. Can't really ask for more when it boils down to The Wonderment.

So, Peace on Earth Good Will Toward Men and Let It Begin with Each. ". . . I wish you good spaces in the far away places you go" (thanks Gord) and may you "find your own Horizon . . . always The Dreamer finds away" (thanks John)

and "My Peace I give unto you . . . not as the world gives" (thanks NKJ)

I know we each breathe deep The Wonderment of Music . . . each to our own very soul . . . regardless the form.

I do wonder, as I watch that Huge Huge Monster Marching Band pass by, if it wasn't somehow the result of The We Twenty Dreamer who longed to be Souza. I believe I shall believe that very thing!

Blessed Peace . . .

Rez
PS: No matter what you see, read or hear from Bob Eubanks, it is NOT raining in Pasadena.
The Sun is In - the Rain is Out. I know it for sure: I called Bob Stane at The Coffee Gallery
