Jazz Consortium Big Band at Durty Nellie's in Palatine

That sound! The irresistible sound of soaring trumpets, robust trombones, wailing saxophones and swinging rhythm section…the sound of the Jazz Consortium Big Band. The Jazz Consortium Big Band is a swinging, rocking, roaring 17-piece Chicago big band that celebrates the best Swing and Jazz-Rock big band music.

    Nice variety of music well-presented. From Count Basie, Glenn Miller and Buddy Rich to Aaron Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" and Jimmy Webb's "MacArthur Park."
