I want to know if the Basketball Band played a New Orleans jazz version of I'm a Jayhawk. That would be pretty cool to hear if they did!

There actually is one of those running around - I happen to have it! About 10-12 years ago there was a cd released called "Songs of Old KU" which included a lot of really cool stuff, including one very jazzy, Harry Connick-esqe swing version of "I'm a Jayhawk". I had it playing in my car earlier today, and will be doing so again tomorrow! Now, while this isn't the song I'm referring to, I found a clip of some Marching Jayhawks fooling around with a little ragtime version (oddly enough, posted in 2008?).

And, just because you asked.... here is one from the parade!

Pretty sweet! Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Thanks for sharing those! Just what I was hoping for.
