IAJE Day 3 - University of Illinois Latin Jazz Ensemble

IU Latin Ensemble

Constitution Hall is just outside our broadcast booth. IAJE is showcasing a lot of college bands there today. The doors to the hall were open, and the sounds of blazing latin jazz were emanating into my ears. I had to check it out. It was the University of Illinois Latin Jazz Ensemble. Check them out on Eddie Palmieri's "Palmas":

Up next, I'll have a post about North Carolina Central University's Ensemble. They are an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) institution. Their guest performer will be Branford Marsalis. Stay tuned. - Josh
