The Interlake High School Jazz Combo is doing it right. They’ve got chops, poise and the ability to select and arrange great material.
Of course, some of that ability to select and arrange might—just might—be aided and abetted by the band’s director, Paul Gillespie, and/or their mentor, jazz trumpeter, Thomas Marriott.
In this studio session, the band (with Marriott sitting in) performed three songs: This Is For Albert (by Wayne Shorter), Stoner Hill (by Brian Blade) and Sonny Rollin’s classic, Doxy, here given an inventive treatment by the band.
