Klezmer return

Halfway through the klezmer band rehearsal on Tuesday someone opened the door of the room and looked in somewhat hesitantly. I didn’t recognize him at first, but then it dawned on me — it was Jim D’Amicco, who had played clarinet with us years and years ago. He’s excellent, maybe the best clarinetist we ever had except for our original teacher Glenn Dickson. The band will be much much better overall with him than it’s been. I’ll probably be playing baritone horn more and trumpet less than in recent years, but maybe just playing more harmony parts on trumpet.
