  1. Mike

    I seem to be in a growing movement that prefers the Two O’clock to the One O’clock. Sometimes, “Old School” can be the best school. GREAT!!

    Michigan State’s ensemble lacks fundamentals (i.e. intonation and time). The bari sax player is awesome, deserving of an outstanding musician award.
