I know it may seem blasphemous to want to listen to anything other than Across the Field, Buckeye Battle Cry, and Hang on Sloopy on a 3 song loop for gameday, but I humbly come to you proposing an alternative!
OSU marching band alumnus, jazz studies graduate, current trumpet player for OAR, and former i dotter Jon Lampley (or as I affectionately know him, Tuba Gooding, Jr) has arranged and produced an album of our favorite Buckeye tunes, but with his unique twist! The album was released last week and is available at select retailers such as Station 88 in the Ohio Union! And iTunes. He is working on broadening the amount of locations.
Do yourself a favor and get this album! Trust me, you will not regret it, even if you are not the biggest fan of jazz music, it is great for tailgates and on a low level during games. It is also a great way to support a Buckeye, a great friend of mine, an incredible musician, and to increase your love for our Buckeye football squadron (if at all possible)!
Feel free to sample and then buy all the songs or the album, or rush out and get it for your viewing parties for the rest of the season.
Enjoy, and GO BUCKS!!!
