Rebekah plays clarinet and sings. Dan handles tenor sax. Dave plays bass. Louise is on piano. Andy plays drums and Jim plays guitar. It is Saturday afternoon after three.

This audience comes to drink beer, watch sports on TV, gossip and network. The music, as Rebekah reminds everyone softly, has to be soft. 

The music Is from ” The Great American Songbook. ” Composers of the songbook are Jerome Kern,Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Vernon Duke, Rodgers and Hart and others.

Clarinet and Tenor Sax sound good together and Rebekah’s vocal reminds me that I should sing more on my Alto Sax.

Having lyrics you can understand is refreshing and these melodies are too sentimental and sweet for our rough century.
