So much of the music GASO performs comes directly from the original manuscript arrangements just as they were recorded. But it nice to have some selections that were written and arranged specifically for the GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK ORCHESTRA. And to that end we announce the partnership with our new GASO Staff Arrangers, Sam McClung and Jim McMillan.
Sam McClung has a tremendous background as a composer and arranger for the Uniter States Navy Band in Washington D.C., the "Airmen of Note" Jazz Ensemble of the United States Air Force in Washington D.C., the Gatlin Brothers, Roberta Flack, Crystal Gayle, the Kennedy Center and numerous other impressive clients.After several prestigious college teaching positions, Sam and his wife have settled in Nashville.
Jim McMillan is a super busy studio trombonist/arranger and conductor here in the Greater Los Angeles area. Jim's arrangements and compositions have been heard on various Netflix series, on Beverly Hills 90210, Cold Case Files, Vegas, and many other television shows. He has worked on various projects with Cristina Aguilera, the American Contemporary Ballet Company, the Vitamin String Quartet, and with numerous other music legends.
Get ready to hear some amazing, exciting and fresh musical treatments of some of your favorite songs. Coming soon!
Welcome Sammy and Jimmy!
