Bates Retro Night III: Bates Jazz Band, 1988 directed by John Furman

Our final archival release of the year will be from Parents Weekend 1988. This is a stellar group of young, dedicated students performing on the Olin stage in its second year of existence; arrangements by Maynard Fergeson, Count Basie, Benny Goodman and Woody Herman are played. So please enjoy this fantastic bit of archival footage, and thank goodness we don’t all wear shoulder pads anymore…
