THIS IS T J O    The Temple Jazz Orchestra's third CD, THIS IS TJO, adds a new element to the band's resume--the composing and arranging skills of its members. This Is TJO features all new material composed by current band members, along with material from friends and associates--all of it recorded for the first time. TJO tears through charts contributed by trumpeter Tim Cates, trumpeter Lee 'Sparky' Thomason, and pianist Dave Wild, along with material from TC Director of Jazz Studies Ben Irom, Austin saxophonist (and occasional TJO 'sub') Paul White and David Bandsman.
