Hi Bill... I didn't realize that Texas had an "Official" Jazz Orchestra.  Who sanctions such things?

Steve, it was officially made that by the state legislature, signed by the governor.  Most of the members are connected one way or the other with a University of North Texas Lab Band of years gone by, and were taught by the most famous jazz professor of all, Leon Breeden. 

Jim Riggs, an awesome saxophonist, is a retired professor of jazz music at the university.

It's a real treat to hear them play, just as it is to hear Galen Jeter's big jazz orchestra every Sunday night at The Village Country Club.

Thanks for asking.

Bill
