Music sample

The New In You[1] is an initial 1985 album (LP Vinyl) release by the California State University, Los Angeles Jazz Ensemble, it was the first recording the group had done under the direction of David Caffey. The jazz band had numerous student musicians that have made a name for themselves as professionals to include Sharon Hirata,[2] Luis Bonilla, Phil Feather, Jack Cooper, Charlie Richard, Mark Gutierrez, and Jose Arellano.


In 1984 and 1985 the California State University, Los Angeles Music Department and CSULA Associated Students decided to fund LP recordings of the jazz ensemble to better serve as a teaching tool for student music, jazz groups. The New In You is the first of six albums to come from CSULA during the 1980s featuring the award winning CSULA #1 Jazz Ensemble.[3] The LP contains tracks from the #1 CSULA Jazz Ensemble to include compositions of three students, one from the director (professor David Caffey), and two from Neil Slater.

There is a consistent tradition of musicians coming from the CSULA program who have worked with major musical acts, on major studio and movie projects, and hold positions in higher education in music. The roster on this album is self-evident as to the diversity and level of student musicians CSULA developed at that time and had for many years dating far back to musicians (graduates) such as Lennie Niehaus and Gabe Baltazar.
