Download Celebration Orchestra clip

This clip of Stompin’ At The Savoy (Stan Kenton) is from a private party celebrating Leon Breeden’s 80th Birthday (former professor of jazz studies at the University of North Texas). The band playing is the Celebration Orchestra led by the late Thane Tolle at The Sammons Center for the Arts in Dallas, Texas. We had the honor of performing for him and his guests. The performance was in October 2001. The placement of our band and the guests was very close with professors and graduates of UNT nearby: Dan Haerle, Ed Soph, Marvin Stamm, and others.
