Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (December 30, 2017)

The traditional Brass, Reeds, and Percussion show for New Year’s is to visit the wind-band cha-cha palace. That is, we play dance music performed by wind bands. Today’s show starts with a song that says “I Can’t Dance,” composed in 1934 by Charlie Gaines and Clarence Williams. Of course, you can dance to this song. In addition to 1930s music, the show has music from the 1980s and pasodobles, a waltz, a polka, and even a foxtrot arranged by Dmitri Shastokovich.
