ABOUT JAZZ AT DREW
Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science (CDU) is committed to meeting the needs of the underserved and strives to positively impact their lives through quality medical education and community engagement initiatives such as Jazz at Drew, an all-day outdoor fundraiser featuring some of the most prolific names in jazz and R&B.
In its prime, Jazz at Drew was regularly referred to by top publications as a "potent secret weapon for jazz in the Southland." However, many journalists and high-profile enthusiasts lamented the fact that the event always seemed to have too low of a profile for the caliber of entertainment that it offered. Don Heckman, a veteran of both the Los Angeles Times and The New York Times, once commented: "One can only hope that this superb event will no longer be an insiders secret."
Former Jazz at Drew acts include music greats such as Nancy Wilson, Dionne Warwick, Bobby Womack, Brothers Johnson, The Chi-Lites, Poncho Sanchez, Hiroshima, The Rickey Minor Band and Friends, Kenny Burrell, Jill Scott, Joe Higgs and others.
Now in its second year of operation after a long hiatus, the re-emergence of Jazz at Drew signals the return of one of LA's best kept secrets as an established entity within the local community and the greater Los Angeles jazz scene!
Your ticket to Jazz at Drew not only gets you a seat to the hottest show in town, but also status as a donor and supporter of CDU. Proceeds from Jazz at Drew go towards enriching the CDU experience for students by funding University scholarships, student services, campus facilities, and pipeline programs. We thank you for your support!
