Jazz Consortium Big Band at Durty Nellie's in Palatine

23 Big Band Jazz fans enjoyed a GREAT December concert!

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.
