I’ve been quiet here lately while I’ve been working on some composition and arranging projects. My latest is entitled Golden Triangle Overture. Here’s a MIDI realization (pretend you’re hearing a real trombone choir).
This piece is for 8 trombones. I composed it for the Mississippi State University Trombone Choir, directed by Dr. Richard Human.
The Asheville Jazz Orchestra is playing our monthly show this Friday, September 23, 2011 at the White Horse Black Mountain.
As usual for our White Horse show, we do a variety of big band charts. There will be some chestnuts from the Swing Era sprinkled in with more contemporary charts, including a couple of originals by yours truly.
If you’re in western North Carolina tomorrow night stop on by and check out the band.
I’ve discovered why posts have gone missing.
This email is to inform you that we detected a storage hardware problem, involving a single MYSQL server, Saturday, September 17, 2011. We took immediate action to restore from backups, and while all of the data should be restored, some customers may still have missing data.
You did not previously have Database Backup enabled, therefore, we have restored your website to the last system backup on August 10, 2011.
Unfortunately I haven’t made any manual backups recently either, so the content added since August 10th are largely gone (not completely, I’ve got backups of a couple of them). It’s too bad, but nothing worth worrying about. I’ll go back and recreate some of them when I get time. In the mean time, I’m been considering doing a little redesigning, so perhaps this will be a good time to do that.
I’m not sure what happened, but it appears that about a months worth of posts and comments have disappeared into the internet ether. I’ll poke around and see if I can rescue them.
