As I slowly get back into playing (see previous post), I look forward to playing my favorite marching band number from high school days: It's Today, from Mame. At the time, this was our band's signature tune...the one to play as we passed the judging stands. I have looked high and low for the music, but have few leads. I guess that I'm looking for the entire marching band set of sheets. Never bought music before. The band teacher did that. A search on The Net produces hits in the area of vocal music arrangements and archived playlists from marching bands in the 70's. No hits for actual sheet music. I understand that it is out of print. There is one possibilty: A Gay Pride band in NYC appears to have it in their library. I intend to seek it out. Perhaps my San Francisco locale will help.
Any other suggestions? I'd love to just hear the song again, at this pont....but not Angela Landsberry singing it.
