A private release in 1973 that records the regular concerts of Band Club of the Yamaguchi University of Medicine. The band was established in 1960 during the Latin music boom period and was given the name Latin Echoes because of this situation, and although the style has changed, the band still seems to be active under the same name today. The style of this album is that of a large jazz band, with a focus on Latin jazz, modern jazz, and swing jazz. Among the tracks are the Chick Corea cover "What Game Shall We Play Today," the cool Big Band cover "Hay Burner," and the Jimi Hendrix cover "C Jam Blues. Listenable. Cover is also great.

山口大学医学部 軽音楽部の定期演奏会を記録した自主制作盤。ラテンミュージック流行期の1960年の設立でそのような状況からLatin Echoesというバンド名がつけられ、スタイルの変化はあったものの現在も同名のバンドで活動を続けているようです。本作のスタイルは大所帯のジャズバンドといった趣で、ラテンジャズ、モダンジャズ、スウィングジャズを中心に収録。中でもChick Coreaのカバー”What Game Shall We Play Today”、クールなBig Bandカバー”Hay Burner”、Jimi Hendrixのカバー”C Jam Blues”を筆頭に非常に聴き応えあります。ジャケもいい具合。
