Do you actually want constructive criticism? I'd be glad to give some, but I'd better make sure you're willing to hear it. If you'd rather have it in private, PM me.

I've got no desire to be harsh. In reality, most other musicians want you to do good.
Ok... overall, not bad. I'm keeping in mind that this is a high school jazz band.
Instead of giving a laundry list of things , I'll just focus on two main things.
1) The swing feel just isn't there sometimes. The drummer is laying it down nice for you guys, but the horns (I say horns meaning all horns, not just bones or any other section) sometimes just aren't swinging.
2)Entrances... there just seems to be a lot of differing opinions on articulations and time. Instead of a tight section sound, often I hear a lot of fluffy entrances and cut offs.
As far as you not being the one with the "crappy" sound...
As a lead player and section leader, you should be weary about bad mouthing your section like that. Sure, there are times where certain voicings will bring out the lead bone ... but more often than not, you are after a section sound, and you are one of four (sometimes five) very important voices. Your job as lead player is not to be heard over everyone else, but to provide a consistent accuracy that the rest of the section can match and play up to. And to take your cues from the lead trumpet player behind you.
Honestly, and I'm not trying to be harsh here, but sometimes the truth is difficult to hear... most of the time, the bone section is so muddy in the recording that telling who is playing what is just impossible.
Again, all and all, not a bad recording. I have heard much worse. Just remember, instead of basking in the glory of how good you think you played, listen more critically and it can really help you grow. Just my humble opinion.

i could not agree more with you. i wasn't trying to show myself off. it was more me telling you what part i played. I know we don't have a very sectional sound if you will. we got better with that latter on in the year. your right but i'm not a bad section leader but we had a younger player in the section who
dosn't like to listen to anyone. not to put all the blame on him. we do try to blend our sound. thank you so much for your advice.

heres another song if you want to lister to it it's prity good but dose have the same problems

If you really want to get your ass kicked, try playing the version of that chart that Maynard Ferguson did.. holy cow, that one's a blow!!!

Yeah I agree with Steve. A lot of those entrances were not together and just lacked a defined style.
