Strike Up The Band

     It's not easy, carrying the musical banner for the Ohio State University year after year. The worldwide fraternity of Buckeye Band enthusiasts expects-no, demands- that hallowed traditions revered for generations be unfailingly preserved:
      That stirring big·band sound. The distinctive, familiar uniforms. The great Ohio State songs and anthems, as only Ohio State musicians can play them.
      But unfailing excellence is not enough for Buckeye fans. They may be traditionalists, but they also enjoy surprises-programs leavened with innovative, zesty arrangements of tunes you'd never expect to hear in the stadium at Columbus.
      Somehow, Director Jon Woods and his 225 young artists have met the challenge again. "Strike Up The Band" contains great Ohio State standards like "Buckeye Battle Cry," "Carmen Ohio" and " Across The Field ." But there are also imaginative treatments of the immortal "Sloopy," "You Are My Sunshine," "Over The Rainbow," and-if you can believe it- a real, live medley of "Looney Tunes."
       Ohio State has produced dozens of memorable programs through the years, but "Strike Up The Band" may be the ultimate showcase to demonstrate just how far these musicians can reach to attain stunning results.
      The Buckeyes always have had a way with show tunes, and "West Sme Story" is predictably impressive. But to sample the wide range of subsequent offerings, from "EI Capitan" to "Russian Sailors Dance" and the dramatic" Amparita Roca" is to truly savor
the Ohio State artistry at its matchless best.
      The Buckeye faithful will be particularly delighted that Director Woods and his group decided to Strike Up The Band for this album. It's satisfying to know that the tradition lives on at Columbus. But so do the elements of surprise and innovation.
