I just recently had Antenna TV added to our local TV lineup, and one of the shows they have is the Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, even going so far as to airing it at 11:30. This is wonderful, but one quirk I think I notice is that during the return from commercial breaks new music has been placed in over the original Tonight Show Orchestra. This is disappointing to say the least. I don't know if anyone here at the forum has seen these or not, but if so was wondering if they noticed the same thing I did regarding this. This said... ...it has been such a treat to see the shows again, and all the memories of the Orchestra have come flooding back. Such an incredible group of musicians. From my era of watching it (80's to the end in '92) some of the names: Ross Thompkins, Ed Shaughnessy, Snooky Young, Pete Christlieb (who I actually saw in concert in '86), Conny Condoli, ... others whose names I can't recall. Besides the musicianship, the entertainment they brought was really funny when they were spotlighted: Doc and his outrageous getups, Tommy Newsome and his blandness, Shelly Cohen as the "third guy", stump the band which was always really funny, the "Tea For Two" tapdance from Ross and Ed when Johnny was struggling with his monologue, and other memories too numerous to mention. I have seen some of the threads here in the Jazz forum and see that many have sadly passed on. I was wondering if anyone here has any memories they are willing to share of this great group of musicians from a TV show that still hasn't been topped, IMO.
