We had a quickie rehearsal on Tuesday to run the new horn parts for "Anais" in context and make adjustments, which went well. The consensus/collaboration process gets increasingly smooth, which is interesting. Heather and Bob and Dobson and Cecil all had good ideas and spoke up, and Erin, who writes our horn arrangements as well as playing sax, was good-natured about making changes on the fly, and all of my better-trained-than-I musicians were making geeky theory jokes I didn't understand, and by the end of our scant hour it sounded right and everyone was pleased. So we'll go into the studio with the horns on Friday night. To be continued!
