I attended the U of T Faculty of Music Spring Record and Book sale last Wednesday and scored some great stuff (no pun intended)! Thanks to Jay Lambie, and old high school friend who works at the Faculty Library for alerting me to this event.
- RCM Piano and Theory books for Michael
- 40 French Hits of Our Times (not really MY times, but great tunes!)
- Ain't Misbehaving arranged for the Canadian Brass (Quintet) - will donate this to Lawrence Park CI's Music Department for their brass quintet
- Sammy Nestico arrangements for jazz band of Take The "A" Train and The Spirit is Willing (donated to Jazz.fm Youth Big Band where Michael plays trombone
- An arrangement for jazz band of "Sunny" (also donated).
I was hoping for some trombone or tuba stuff for Michael but there was very little music for brass. Couldn't get anywhere near the CD table! Lots of swarming around the piano and vocal scores as well. The prices were great and I was glad I got there early. Afterwards, I dropped into Remenyi on Bloor and picked up the RCM Theory syllabus and a book of etudes for Bass Trombone.
And now, for your listening pleasure.
