School Of Jazz Gets Back To College With PLU's 322

Sep 26, 2016

Named for their practice room at Pacific Lutheran University, 322 brought 4 of their 5 band members to the knkx studios for an afternoon of cool tunes they wrote themselves. Drawing on their jazz education in standards to the wide variety of music available to college kids, the band clearly finds as much inspiration from modern rock 'n' soul as they do the Great American Songbook.

They also told us about the transition from high school to college jazz education and the hustle of moving into the cafes and bars of the professional jazz scene. As much as they excel as a group, you'll find them developing their skills in jam sessions and connecting with their jazz elders — natural mentoring that's as old as the music itself.
