Clash of the College Bands Tourney – Week 6 (Quarterfinals): University of Northern Colorado Jazz Lab Band I vs. Whitworth University Jazz Ensemble I

17 Feb

Congratulations to the week 5 winner, the University of Northern Iowa Jazz Band I, who edged out the University of Miami Concert Jazz Band with 54% of the vote.

The quarterfinals continue now, and I expect some close matchups. Week 6 begins now, with the quarterfinal match up between the University of Northern Colorado Jazz Ensemble versus the Whitworth University Jazz Ensemble I.

To see the bracket, click here.

Each week, two college or university big bands will “face off”. You, as the reader, will listen to a song from each band, and then vote for the one you like the best. After the week is over, one team will move on to the next round, and we will feature two new bands. The last band standing is the Clash of the College Bands winner.

Below are the next two school bands.

    I just don’t get the Univ. of Northern Colorado!! Have heard them a number of times at the Greeley, CO jazz festival. They certainly think a lot of themselves based on the endless reminders, during the festival, of how they were voted best Collegiate Jazz Ensemble by Jazz Times or High Times or some magazine like that. To me, they ramble, have no energy … they just don’t swing. Too comfortable in their proclaimed superiority … perhaps?!!

    Hey,

    I just wrote an article about the places from where you can download free legal jazz mp3`s. If You`d ever think that you will write an article about that subject then check it out. Probably oldschool jazz fans know most of these but i`m sure that there are some gems.
