A long time ago… In a band far away…

there was a freshman boy with a trumpet scared half to death playing with upper classmen who were like minor gods to him. That boy is me. I managed not to screw the night up 😉

I came across a tape my Mom had given me long ago while I was moving my office and finally sat down and recorded it. These songs are the ’83-’84 Bixby High School Jazz Ensemble playing at the ’83 Christmas Concert. You will have to excuse the quality – this was recorded with an old school cassette tape recorder held in my dear mother’s lap. Not the best recording and likely not our best performance but still gives me a shiver or two. If you were with me or just a fan of high school jazz – I hope you enjoy.


Here are some links to zip archives of the songs in mp3 and wav formats for those of you who want them for keeps!
