Jason Burt is bringing to today’s audiences music recorded in the fire of the Pacific war of World War Two.

Mr. Burt, who spent much of his youth in the California Delta, is the history teacher at Clarksburg Middle School.

And he is the person who discovered long-forgotten recordings of an Army Air Force HQ band stationed in the Philippines in which his grandfather, a Julliard trained trumpet player and music teacher, was the lead trumpet player.

“Before the war ended, this 20-piece orchestra recorded themselves playing 10 chart topping big band songs of the time period,” Mr. Burt says.

But those recordings were forgotten as the war ended and the band members – all amateurs – went their separate ways.

Now Mr. Burt is bringing them back together, musically.

He talks about his unusual project in this CVBT Audio Interview Podcast via Zoom.
