“The JCBB did a great rendition of ‘In the Mood’!  There's a little too much snobbery against classics like that one!  And when people hear bands like the JCBB play those classics, they'll truly understand why they became classics in the first place!  Keep up the good work!"

--Chicagoland Big Band Jazz Society
