Sample Tune: Adeste Fidelis
Adeste Fidelis doesn’t start like Christmas, but does end that way. It’s a wistful tune. I like jamming so much, but when I hear the recordings, I wish there was a way to go back and fix the recordings and re-record them with a fuller arrangement. We’re not professionals, but we do have inventive energy. We don’t always hit the notes we’re going for, like towards the end when I start trying to do Adeste and I can’t hit the notes. Then I pick up the horn and noodle around trying to find it. Bob picks up the melody and we intertwine around each other. I bring back the opening melody and mix it in with the Adeste tune, hoping to find an end. But as usual, it’s always hard for us to end.
