Album Notes
The place — Saginaw, Michigan.
The year — 1970
The music — classic jazz and traditional spirituals.
Dave Oppermann, entrepreneur, businessperson, and part-time bistro pianist, met up with a local trumpet-playing minister, Reverend Gary Miller, and the two decided to assemble a jazz ‘band’ for a one-time Dixieland worship service at their First Congregational Church. When the church secretary needed a name for the program, Gary suggested “The New Reformation Dixieland Jazz Band”, a name much too long for any marquee. But then it was only to be used for a single performance.
Since then, it’s been shortened to the NRB.

Approaching its 50-year mark, it‘s now apparent the NRB perfected how to start but not how to stop.

That Old Time Religion is the NRB’s second gospel and spiritual compilation, this time featuring guest vocalist Claudia Schmidt. She is well-known in folk music circles on her own. A chance meeting with her took place in the band’s early days when several NRB members performed for a weekend on Michigan’s remote Beaver Island, where Claudia was living. A bit of sleuthing tracked her down, and once located she was delighted to add her multi-octave voice to the project.

It took about two minutes at the first recording session to feel the mutual “vibes”. No written arrangements were used. The NRB just played and Claudia sang as the ideas struck. A little of “let’s try this” and the recorder was turned on.
