Somewhere over the rainbow
This is violin cover with Ukulele for Somewhere over the rainbow. Please enjoy it :)
I had to play an audition tape for a college scholarship in 1983. I played the piano -- I played some proletarian Chopin number, and then I played my own arrangement of Harold Arlen's "Over the Rainbow." I got the scholarship -- $500 per year, that would be $5000 now. I had to agree to play in the jazz ensemble ... boy, what a tough deal, huh? Turns out the piano teachers really liked my performance of "Over the Rainbow" because they never get any audition tapes with bona fide improvised jazz, so I wound up getting some plum classical accompanying gigs in the music department that paid about 2X minimum wage.
Very nice Mrs.Lee.
