Thunder Soul

Just got home after seeing the docu-movie "Thunder Soul"; the story of Conrad "Prof" Johnson and the Kashmere High School Stage Band of the 70's. I highly recommend the film. I was pleasantly surprised to see my own picture as the lead Alto player for our competing Jazz Band at San Angelo Central High School and the fact that my high school band/jazz director, Mr. Gary Wylie, was a contributor to the film and was interviewed throughout the feature. What a thrill! Every educator needs to watch this film. The key take away for me was the phrase by Prof: "don't take the music out of the school." Amen.
