    Wonderful playing! In our days this would be written one (maybe two?) octaves higher...

    Spectacular! Thanks for sharing. Is that you in the pic? Good to hear the original lyrics. Two guys in our band take turns doing it. We give the nod to (and, of course, change slightly) the Maynard version. While we are aware of Bunny in a scholarly sort of way, it's the one on "Chameleon" that we heard first and grew up with.

    A.N.A, Good to see a couple of shots of Bunny with his 12B Coprion!

    I wasn't able to attend the festival in Bunny's honor, but here's a sample, with lots of wind noise hitting the mikes. You can find an indoor performance of "I Can't Get Started" on YouTube by the same band at the same festival; just look. And, for ANA's benefit, he's playing an Olds (a "The Olds" cornet).
