Yes, I knew this would be great and I had to go. They started with some pieces by John Kirby and then Raymond Scott. I didn't know the names, so I can't distinguish and I now forget a lot of what he said. But Raymond Scott has a lot of music that was used in cartoons.
All of the music was really nice with the clarinet. Don mentioned at one point that Rob DeBellis had all the hard parts. They both did a lot of awesome stuff. It was fun and captivating. They also did some other stuff, like Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.
Don had a Bang on a Can shirt on and they had a free sampler up front. I'm looking forward to listening to it.
