on October 25, 1997. The work was titled "Fired Up!" because this is an
expression Mr. Adam often uses to start a trumpet lesson: Let's get
this thing fired up!

Barry Springer and Karl Sievers
Karl shares his realization with us that he is the only one in the
room with a doctorate in music. We looked forward to his
at the Irish Lion's, a local pub in Bloomington that evening after the
rehearsal. Graduate college credit was not given for attendance on this
occasion. Barry looks on wondering as the rest of us did, why Karl looks
exactly as he did when we were music students at IU about 20 years ago.

music faculty in the jazz department.
