Rumpus in Roosevelt

by Roosevelt Jazz Band

Where The Wild Things Are” is a wonderful Maurice Sendak tale of a boy named Max and his encounters with some crazy creatures across an ocean. It’s not really so different from this past year at Roosevelt, except that I traveled with the wild things! -SB

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Where The Wild Things Are” is a wonderful Maurice Sendak tale of a boy named Max and his encounters with some crazy creatures across an ocean. It’s not really so different from this past year at Roosevelt, except that I traveled with the wild things!
In our Chapter I, the Wild Things left the brick walls of Roosevelt High to debut their interpretation of the Ellington/Strayhorn Jazz Nutcracker for an appreciative full house at Benaroya Hall.
In Chapter II, the Wild Singing Things placed 2nd at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. Wild Lauren an Katie won soloist awards!
Chapter III: The Wild Things traveled to far away China. They were loved for their music and their craziness, especially by Uncle Bill, who was crazier that they were! The Wild Things were magical… and very sloppy.
Chapter IV: The Wild Singing Things did it again, this time, 2nd place in Reno and another award for Wild Lauren!
In Chapter V, the Wild Things flew to ever-swinging New York City, for their third Essentially Ellington Finalist Competition. They swung so hard that all the other wild things jumped for joy, particularly when the very wild Connie sang. Even Marsalis , the Monster, joined in for the final song of the night! Roosevelt received 2nd Place. Alex, Connie, D’Vonne, Katie, Kinsella, and Kessler were outstanding soloists. The Rhythm Things and even those wild and sloppy ‘Bones were award winners too. It was wonderful. But this time it was getting late and all The Wild Things were ready to go home. They gathered in Seattle to share their wild Jazz music. So fine were these gatherings, that they decided to record them so everyone could experience the joy they all felt.
In Sendak’s story, when Max had all the Wild Things under his magical spell, he looked into their yellow eyes and cried, “Let the wild rumpus start!”
Right on, Max!
Scott Brown
