The Barack Obama Suite
A very nice set of UMKC Conservatory student performances was uploaded to YouTube this week. "The Time For Rhythm Changes Is Now," the fourth movement of The Barack Obama Suite, has a breezy Vince Guaraldi vibe. It features Will Sanders on tenor sax, Hermon Mehari on trumpet, Andrew Oeullette on piano, Zach Beeson on bass and Brian Steever on drums.
The first, second and third movements are similarly compelling.
