Jazz Ensemble (HUJE) was founded in 1975 by its director, Fred Irby, III.
Outstanding performances in the United States, Europe, South America,
Asia, and the Caribbean have caused it to be recognized as one of the
foremost college jazz ensembles. HUJE has been heard on radio and television
as well as in concert, often appearing with celebrated performers. Members
of the HUJE have won awards as performers and composers/arrangers, and
the ensemble includes among its alumni several practicing jazz artists.
Additionally, the HUJE was featured during the 1992, 1996 and 2005 Kennedy
Center Honors Gala (CBS-TV). The HUJE has released thirty-four recordings in
a distinguished series that began in 1976.
