Tyler Mire Big Band – #Officefortheday (2017)

Artist : Tyler Mire Big Band



ABOUT: #Officefortheday (EUR0418)

On February 14th, 2016, three days before I left for Navy Basic Training, the Tyler Mire Big Band went into the studio one last time to record all the new music I’d written since “Movin’ Day.” All the music on this album, we had been performing at our regular “Family Wash” gig in East Nashville. Because of this, we were able to track all eight tunes in a challenging five-hour session. The band played wonderfully and relished the task, and the resulting energy comes shining through in this recording. I am beyond honored to have led this incredible ensemble for three years, and I’m especially proud of one of our last performances – a showcase spot at the Jazz Education Network in January 2016, in Louisville, Kentucky. Without further ado, I hope you enjoy our #Officefortheday!
