The Northern Illinois University Jazz Ensemble, directed by Ron Carter, has long been considered one of the best college jazz bands in the world.
This year, NIU Jazz Ensemble brings to Metamora a special guest artist, Lew Tabackin. Tabackin is an artist of astonishing vision. His flute playing and distinctive tenor sax style show the full range of possibilities of his instruments, ultimately creating his own sound and aura.
The list of guest artists with whom the ensemble has performed includes Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, Louis Bellson, Clark Terry, Tito Puente and James Moody, just to name a few.
