A performance by Drake University president David Maxwell and jazz saxophonist Dick Oatts. While many university presidents across the country are talking to their graduates about how to successfully achieve a balance in their lives, Drake University President David Maxwell is taking a different approach, he's showing them how he does it. At Drake's Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony, Maxwell, the son of highly acclaimed jazz trumpeter Jimmy Maxwell, picked up his Gibson Les Paul guitar and played a blues ballad with renowned saxophonist Dick Oatts, who had just accepted an honorary Doctor of Music degree from the University.
