Trombones, pants and cake

Verdi's opera Nabucco turns 170 today, so that's our start this morning joined by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Then local trombonist (and CEO) Sharman King helped us celebrate pants yesterday (it's a long story), and to thank him, I have some music by Urbie Green.
Then, because that's neither here nor there... The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band takes us to a happy little farm. I think they have trombones, but no pants though.
Brand new music from The School! Their Loveless Unbeliever album was high at the top of my 2010 albums list, and I've got a b-side from their yet-to-be-released single... and Barbie was unveiled this day in 1959, and Meryn Cadell laments never getting invited to Malibu beach parties.
