Life-after-college is about to take the men of The McMurray 3 in separate directions; but before that happens we’ve got them in studio for a final session! Kurt Reeder (piano) is setting off for sunny California to immerse himself in the jazz scene and work as a copyist. He’s also about to be a Dad for the first time! Jay Tibbitts (drums) has recently returned from international tours with the BYU International Folk Dance Ensemble. And Aaron McMurray (bass) is tackling two majors and looking towards many more years of school—as a future med student.  Among the jazz standards the trio plays this hour are Kurt’s arrangement of Sammy Fain’s “Someone’s Waiting for You” and Aaron’s original composition “Gitana.”  Follow Highway 89 on twitter @byuH89
