Our 2018-19 Album is NOW Available to hear and to buy!

One of the YJED highlights each year is to go into a professional recording studio, and record an album of our best and favorite music over the past season.  This IS the real thing, recording with our Featured Guest Artists, in a studio with pro engineers, with the clock running.  It is both a challenging and exciting day!

 

This year, we were joined in the Transient Sound studio on June 2 by Bob Lark, our Spring Concert Featured Guest Artist on trumpet and flugelhorn.

 

But this year, we have a bonus on our album!  Our performance at the Illinois Music Educators conference on January 24th was also professionally recorded​ before hundreds of Illinois music educators attending the conference.  So we present four tracks from that performance as well, featuring the other Featured Guest Artists this year... Mark Colby (tenor saxophone), Tim Coffman (trombone), and Rick Haydon (guitar).

Visit our Bandcamp.com page to hear this great album.

We have dropped the price of the 2018-19 album from $7 to FREE and individual tracks from $1 to FREE. This is so students who are considering auditioning for YJED membership have the opportunity to hear the types of charts the band plays, and the quality of the playing in a professional studio setting.

We encourage anyone who can to contribute $7 or more at the checkout (you will be prompted to "name your price") to help finish paying off the recording, mixing, and mastering bills for this album. Any funds collected in excess of the remaining bills will be used to start the fund for the 2019-20 album. If this test is successful, we will be able to continue to offer future albums for FREE.
