And Thomas Hooten performed With Malice Toward None. I love that particular trumpet and orchestra arrangement.

 

And Hooten's performance of it on the Spielberg/Williams Collaboration Vol. 3 is so wonderful.  Funny how this is the same concert hall where that album was also recorded!  I would love to have heard this live performance.

 

And it's especially appropriate since Hooten was once a member of the Marine Band.

Kind of an unfortunate update to this.

 

Turns out, that concert was LIVE VIDEO STREAMED by UCLA's music department.  But I'm guessing no JWFan could've known Williams would be there, so no one grabbed it :( 

 

From the Marine Band's twitter, looks like John conducted the 1941 march and the imperial march.

 

Also, here's another picture, I've added it to my original post too.

Pity they cannot be emailed. There is a phone number,

so we could ask them whether there is a recording of this concert that could be streamed again, or something.

 

I would gladly do it, but I cannot pull off a convincing patriotic American with a German phone number and a Polish-British accent.

*Revivified.

But Marian that word sounds positively antediluvian! Have you been so busy you haven't had time to retool your vocabulary? Most younger writers use postmodern synthesized word sources these days.

He looks better in black than that Colonel Sanders getup.

Turtlenecks for the win!
