BBC Big Band Orchestra: 20 Best of Big Bands. But more importantly, my youngest son liked it so much and was asking questions about the music, so I let him watch a couple of big band performances on youtube and told him a few of the terms as well as the names of a couple of the instruments. I love it when one of my kids takes an interest in something I like and I can use it as a teaching moment. Makes my day.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
