UW Jazz Festival

Will Knight (JB2, trumpet), and Kai DeSpain (JB1, tenor sax) received Outstanding Soloist awards at the UW Jazz Festival on January 28. JB1 was one of two finalists selected to perform in the evening concert. Congratulations! The emphasis of this festival is education, ensemble performance, improvisation and developing the jazz language.  Roosevelt was well represented with JB1, JB2, and JB3 all participating.
