O’s Notes: The Two O’clock Lab Band is one of the finest jazz ensembles to emanate out of the University of North Texas. Under the direction of saxophone professor James Riggs they recorded 10 albums and received the DownBeat Student Music Award 5 times between 1973 and 2008. Countless musicians were a part of the celebratory ensembles and this three-disc set captures many of the highlights. This is clean, vibrant big band music in the traditional sense that will bring endless enjoyment.
