Blue Devils’ 3rd place show finished just a tenth of a point under 2nd place Santa Clara Vanguard, kicking off with Marius “Butch” Nordal’s “Liferaft Earth.” (Futurist Buckminster Fuller, best known for the creation of the geodesic dome, used this term along with “spaceship earth” to describe our planet as a vessel hurtling through space, the planet being a spherical container upon which we all rely for sustenance.) Nordal is a jazz pianist who is known for his interviews of other musicians and his YouTube videos covering various jazz topics.
