Nice arrangement, if I do say so myself…

“Up on the Roof” is a classic Carole King song–or is it?  In my Carole King Anthology songbook, published in 1973, she credits “Words and Music by Gerry Goffin and Toni Stern”.  So I’ve always given them credit.  But now that JP Jubilee is singing my new arrangement of the song on their upcoming concert, a lot of singers have looked up the song and find it attributed to Carole alone.   The mystery continues, and it is a GREAT song and a Very Fine Arrangement that fits our SATB group.   I’m proud of them and also delight in hearing them rock out on “Love Potion #9” and a fun take on a Mozart round, using the theme of procrastination, rather than scatalogical references to music critics.   All performed in less than an hour, with ice cream afterwards at JP Licks…
