Jazz Links section is live

The jazz links section of the site is live. In it you will find links to great bands playing our tunes, as well as some school bands playing our exact arrangements. I want you to take the time to listen to these videos, especially the school band examples. We will discuss these during class, and I want you to be able to talk about strengths and weaknesses of each performance.
