Renny Lands Spot in Jazz Band

Renny's trumpeting abilities landed him a spot in the audition only Hixson jazz band. R is unsure about doing jazz, but recently tried playing his trumpet upside down in class, so has no trouble improvising. This puts him in a league with Miles Davis, who used to perform playing his trumpet backwards, facing away from the audience.

that is so cool. We should try and go to the Cope Junior High Jazz band performance while in Redlands so the boys can compare notes. Maybe Stella and Emily will be inspired.
