OCU Jazz Ensemble Performs "No More Blues"

The Oklahoma City University Jazz Ensemble (which is a Jazz Orchestra or Big Band or whatever you’d like to call this kind of group) gave the second performance (after the OKC Jazz Orchestra gave the premiere at the Petroleum Club in OKC’s Chase Tower) of my arrangement of “No More Blues” with guest artist John Riley, the excellent jazz drummer from New York.  John is one of those very nice guys whose relaxed and soft-spoken demeanor stands in sharp contrast to the fact that he’s an absolute beast at the drum set.

Thanks to John Allen, the ensemble director, and everyone in the group for a wonderful job with my arrangement of this great Jobim tune.
