O’s Notes: There is a lot of good jazz trickling down from north of the border! University of Toronto has a formidable jazz program with director Gordon Foote and saxophonist, faculty member Mike Murley. While Mike’s solos were excellent the students participating in this large ensemble stayed with him in all aspects. Their tone is excellent and beats right on time. This is a big band that packs a strong punch and is a challenge to some of the DuPaul University Jazz Ensemble’s great recordings.
