O’s Notes: The Jazz program at DuPaul University is outstanding. Bob Lark is the director of the program that has produced many formidable musicians. Additionally, he has developed an association with saxophonist Phil Woods that has resulted in strong interaction and recording projects. Right To Swing is the fourth release from Woods with the students. Phil performs with the University Jazz Ensemble and a subset honor chamber jazz group. There is crisp brass on the upbeat numbers and warm tones for the ballads across ten Woods compositions. We truly enjoyed it!
