Adarius' Thirteenth Birthday Concert & 2016 Christmas

My short amateur video of the Skyview Jr. High Jazz Band playing "Blue Bossa".

Adarius is in the first row, second from the right;  his good friend Gavin Itzka is the trumpeter in the second row, far right.  Adarius and Gavin are the only seventh-graders to qualify for this elite band in the competition between seventh through ninth grade musicians.

Grandson Adarius and Pastor's kid & trumpeter Ian Rood add improvisational touches to a play at a Lynnwood church for  Christmas 2016 set in the post-war Jazz-era.
