Orange Blossom Special for Paul or anyone who might know

Postby Terry Tolley » Fri Jan 14, 2011 2:14 pm

There is a wonderful arrangement of The Orange Blossom Special on Youtube that I was wondering about. The parts that Chet does are, I'm fairly certain must be of his own invention. Was it Chet's idea to record this song again? I was also wondering about the parts that Paul Yandell and Terry McMillan had that fit in so well with everything else that Chet was doing. Paul, I was wondering if you recall whether you and Terry come up with your own parts, or did they develop as a collaborative effort from everyone's input? I have listened to it so many times, I lost count, and that arrangement always keeps me spellbound from start to finish. regardless of how much I watch or listen to it. This video has been around for a long time, and I'm sure I don't need to post it again since everyone must have seen it by now. but I have wondered about this for a long time, and have been too lazy to ask.

Paul, thanks so much for the info! To me, that arrangement is just timeless! Each section of is just so captivating to listen to and watch that I end up playing it about 9 or 10 times before I even realize it, and say, "Wow!" every time. Just awesome!

Terry, I believe that Chet is the only person who could have performed that so smoothly and with the calmness that looks like he is within minutes of taking a nap.......lol.
