One of the best musical projects I have been involved with lately involved recording and performing with the Jeff Richmond Jazz Orchestra last fall. Jeff is a doctoral student in music composition at UN-L, this band is one he put together to record his music and to play for his dissertation recital. We did one rehearsal, and then played the concert the next weekend. Jeff had it professionally recorded and released on his web site. The compositions are cutting edge - and the band is one of the best I have played in, with ringers brought in from Kansas City and Tampa, and many of the best players in Omaha and Lincoln. My son, Paul, has a couple of nice solos on the recording. Check it out:
