Another Jazz Band

This post is mainly for my folks who missed the band concert earlier this week. 

Some kids in the jazz band approached their teacher a few months back and wanted to try Sing, Sing, Sing for the concert.  Well, they don't make music for Sing, Sing, Sing for middle schoolers ....not even high schoolers.  These kids tackled the full blown way Benny Goodman wrote it version.  They did pretty darn good, if I do say so myself.  Keep in mind, these are 7th and 8th grade students - and they only had 4 weeks to learn it:

The clarinot soloist is an amazing young man; not only did he kill this solo, he also plays sax, violin, and piano!
