Gumbo ended today. It was an amazing, amazing experience in which I learned so much about professionalism and musicality. The score was so difficult and I was tested constantly as a leader and a musician. This was one of the most valuable experiences I have had on this show. I truly believe Gumbo has a big future.
Tomorrow, I am going to A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. I also will be meeting with David Loud soon, MD of many Kander and Eb shows. It will be a defining moment of this project to speak to such a veteran of the craft I am studying. I have other interviews lined up for later in the week as well. It’s shaping up to be an excellent week 5.
