"Rotten Kid" that arranged for the Buddy Rich band. This is at Jazz at the Bistro in St Louis. The band performed there monthly for 2 years. Each time the band performed, a youth band would perform during intermission. Last set students from that band would sit in with the band. You can hear Lindbergh HS student Drew Jacobs solo on trombone at 3:10 in this video.
