Jazz Concert ’79

Jazz Concert '79I played tuba in my high school’s jazz band. At the end of my junior year, we recorded our end-of-year concert, and the band director made arrangements to have the recording made into an LP vinyl record. Naturally, I purchased a copy, and years later digitized the songs into MP3 files.

Here are the songs from that concert. Enjoy.
