    4th of July Contest - Win a Jazz/Big Band Library

    Members in the U.S. of A are celebrating Independence Day this weekend. Today we are going to the parade, tomorrow been invited to a BBQ and Monday watching fireworks.

    Boring....[compared to the excitement we have around the forum]

    To add even more excitement to this holiday let's do some music and have a contest. Submit a short MP3 appropriate for Independence Day. It could be a patriotic piece, original work, or appropriate music you may have already submitted. The work must use GPO or GOS.

    There's no music more American than Jazz and Big Band. The winning entry will win the upcoming Jazz and Big Band Library.

    Also, feel free to share an interesting and unusual Fourth of July stories here.

    Is the deadline July 4? Doesn't give us much time...

    Win a JABB? Does that mean the wait for those who either don't win or don't participate is close to almost over?

    This is an interesting idea. Perhaps I'll give it a shot. If I've got time...

    Okay, so if you guys are taking requests, how about a cover of Glen Miller's "American Patrol"?

    Hey, this sounds like fun... Pick a patriotic tune and do it big band style...

    I'm into this, will give it a shot. I am assuming even though the prize is Jazz/Big Band, the piece submitted can be in any style?

    What libraries are people aloud to use? GPO and GOS?

    I hope a chance will also be given to non-GPO users? It would be nice at least.
