April 2005 Dan Gideon added:
I'd like to share a little background about the record. I was a graduate assistant and leading the jazz band was my job and privilege. The limited budget I was given was all used to buy music. We raised the money to record the album and produce a limited quantity by having the guys in the band pre-sell them to family and friends.
The quality on some of the tunes, as you may have noticed, is lacking. Mainly intonation problems due to the fact that the sections (trumpets, trombones and saxes) were spread apart a bit in order to separately record them. I don't recall any significant problems on the Zappa piece. Hope you enjoy it.
