Breeden led the jazz program and “One O’Clock Lab Band” from 1959 to 1981. It became the first college band to perform at the White House by presidential invitation in 1967. It also began to tour internationally and became the first college band to receive a Grammy nomination.
The band was named for its rehearsal time.
Among Breeden’s students were future jazz pianist and composer Lyle Mays and veteran studio musicians and sidemen “Blue Lou” Marini and Marvin Stamm.
(This version CORRECTS that the band received a Grammy nomination, not a Grammy. )
