Located in South Central L.A., just across the 105 from the Watts Towers, the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science graduates thousands of physicians and healthcare professionals in a community where quality higher education can be hard to come by. Its recently revived annual music festival, Jazz at Drew, both raises money for campus services and brings top-shelf entertainment to the community. This year’s headliners are soul/funk legends Earth, Wind and Fire, who continue to tour steadily in the wake of last year’s death of founder Maurice White. Renowned percussionist and Prince associate Sheila E., soul trio DW3 and veteran jazz and R&B singer Eloise Laws round out the bill, along with perhaps this year’s most exciting booking: local jazz collective the West Coast Get Down, featuring mighty saxophonist Kamasi Washington.
