LaShawn D. Gary ‘On The Yard’ – LISTEN

Piano / Keys / Strings – LaShawn D. Gary

Bass – Robert Skinner

Drums – Ladell Abrams

Students of Southern University A & M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana affectionately refer to the campus as “On The Yard”.  This song is a reflection of my diligent pursuit to become an accomplished pianist, composer, arranger and music educator as an undergraduate student at the prestigious SU.  As a member of the world renowned “Human Jukebox” Marching Band and the 1992 winner of the Tourgee Debose National Classical Piano Competition, I was recruited by the late, great Jazz Clarinetist, Alvin Batiste (recording artist), to join the jazz ensemble, and the rest is H-I-Story; my story.
