I have been working on film score for Les Francis for a film about Washington insider Harry McPherson. It will be a 1hour show for PBS.
Unfortunately I heard this morning that Harry suffered a tragic fall and is in the hospital. I hope he gets out in time to see the film. The Film is an amazing look inside the LBJ administration.
The Germano’s show on Tuesday was really fun. I just looked at the videos we took and I am struck by how naturally Marilyn swings.
It is just an amazing, and particularly American trait that she comes by naturally. Can I just say that Germano’s would benefit from just a “little” stage….
Just a 4 inch stage would make a world of difference. Also, it is worth noting that Valentine’s day…. or St. Valentines Day ( as I usually call it) is a supremely weird night to play.
At least half the audience was there as sort of a pre-game warm-up for the “actual” Valentine’s Day event. ( sex) . There were quite a few couples who left before the show was over… but had quirky somehow complicit smiles on their faces as they left. I felt like we had done our jobs in making their lives just a little more complete for at least that one night.

Close the doors on winter chills and join the CWSO as they welcome Chaise Lounge for a stop on their TUNDRA TOUR! The band will be blowing in on February 25th and 26th and have promised a hot night in the Theater @1800 with their cool jazz standards backed by the CWSO. These six band members comprise some of the best of the east coast musicians around today. We’ll start the program off with Bernstein and Gershwin and then slide back into time to a “blend of music that sounds like it was recorded at Capitol Recording Studios in 1962 and somehow found its way to today’s pop charts.”
