Description
School Me! - the first release on the newly formed Stage Band Research label - compiles the best funk, jazz, pyschedelia (and a healthy combination of the three!) that America's high school stage band and university lab bands and jazz ensembles have to offer. This is not an easy task - for every one hundred stage or lab band records you find (when you're lucky to find them, as they were micro-pressed and never properly distributed outside of the region where the school in question sat), perhaps you'll find five interesting ones. Out of every hundred interesting tracks you hear, maybe five will contain a little magic. Out of every hundred magical tracks, maybe twenty deserve reissue.

You can tell we've been working on this compilation for years, right?

We follow in the footsteps of Cali-Tex's School House Funk volumes and Now-Again Records proper exhumation of the legendary Houston, Texas-based Kashmere Stage Band's nigh-perfect repertoire. We've assembled a compilation that we feel gives a great cross section of the stage band and jazz ensemble movement in America. A movement meant to educate children and hone their musical talents. A movement that, sadly, has all but disappeared.

We present you with white bands, black bands, mixed bands... bands from well endowed universities and those from impoverished, overlooked high schools... bands from the sticks and those from the bricks... Bands who obviously worshipped James Brown and those who inspired by Cream.

We've focused on the era between 1968 and 1975 for this compilation. But this is only the beginning. Let's hope it doesn't take us a decade to find enough to make it to volume two.
