"Dark Matters" - UNT One O'Clock Lab Band Live from Birdland

Composed by Dave Richards

Dave Richards composed this in honor of Neil Slater for the Nov. 22, 2008 retirement celebration. "This is a live direct-to-internet recording made by our Engineer-Deluxe Phil Bulla of Platinum Productions. Recorded in the studio on "Lab 2009".


"Ice Nine" - UNT One O'Clock Lab Band Live from Birdland

This video is from the same Phil Bulla live project in Birdland and was recorded in the studio on "Lab 2009"

"Newport" - UNT One O'Clock Lab Band Live from Birdland"


From the same Birdland gig, Phil Bulla project. This was a very special moment for us because it was a performance of a piece from the newly acquired Maynard Ferguson Library. Our on-going project is to take the classics from this collection (i.e. the Birdland Dream Band and 1960s era) and expand them to fit the larger One O'Clock instrumentation. In much the same way that Bob Curnow takes smaller ensemble works and expands them without losing the original sound and vibe, we are "Curnowizing" these classic works as well.

(Bob's great collection of charts can be purchased at Sierra Music)

Not only was this performance special due to the fact that it was our first time outside of Texas to perform some of this important music, but the specific piece "Newport" by Slide Hampton had not been played live in over 40 years. AND Slide Hampton himself was in the audience for the concert! He enjoyed the performance a great deal, and told us that he had written the original (initially called "Blues Suite") when he was 19!

Here is a shot from that night with the trombone section, Steve Wiest, and one of the most gracious legends in all of jazz: Slide Hampton:

L-R back row: alto saxophonist Collin Hauser, bass trombonist Matt Jefferson, tenor trombonist Carl Lundgren, tenor trombonist Luke Brimhall, Steve Wiest, Slide Hampton
