||Did I Say That Out Loud?” is a driving swing style piece written for young jazz ensemble. It is an exciting piece that young players will really get excited about. It was performed for the first time by the Lake Geneva Middle School sixth grade Jazz Band in May of 2008.
Rhythm section parts are very playable, including a drum set solo in the style of Gene Krupa. The title is a private joke that I share with my daughter Amanda when one of us says something particularly caustic. Amanda is a promising young music educator. This was written on her 22nd birthday, March 31st, 2008.
