Imagine an orchestra populated by actors/waiters who were overactors.
Imagine all these trumpet players with handkerchiefs doing their best Louis
or with the jacked up bell and pooched out cheeks of Dizzy. Or the trombone
section that showed up thought it was a Basie gig. Or if all these string
players didn't watch what they were doing and poked someone's eye out. And
I have the suspicion a "drummer" would get carried away and do his best John
Bonham imitation (think "When the Levee Breaks") while the orchestra is
playing the Jupiter symphony. Of course, I don't know if I'd know any
difference at the podium. Maybe we could get Woody Allen to play clarinet.
I can imagine him complaining about the seating arrangement, the music
stand, and the lighting is all wrong....
