Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (August 25, 2018)

This edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion feature a jazz standard that started out as a composition by an obscure French composer. Jean Gabriel Prosper Marie was born in 1852 and attended the Paris Conservatory. In 1887, he composed "The Golden Wedding" for piano and cello; later, it was arranged for other sets of instruments. It became something of a hit for the time. It became an even bigger hit in 1940 when it was performed by Woody Herman and his band. The jazz version is particularly noted for its drum solo. This edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion begins with a recording of "The Golden Wedding" as performed by the Pasadena Roof Orchestra.
