The Waco Jazz Orchestra directed by Tim Cates

The first release by Waco's premier jazz ensemble. Directed by trumpeter Tim Cates, WJO plays regularly around the Waco area. The CD is also a memorial to WJO drummer Nick Klaras (a founding member of the ensemble), who died shortly after the recording was completed. The CD captures WJO's infectious swing and classic big band sound. For details on WJO click here: Waco Jazz Orchestra.
