Named for American philosopher Josiah Royce, UCLA's grand 1,800-seat theater has a history of legendary performances that dates back to the 1930s, when Jimmy Dorsey’s Band, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin and Arnold Schoenberg graced the stage. The stellar jazz lineup reflects the diversity and scholarship of the current scene; greats like Ron Carter, Bill Frisell, Robert Glasper, Vijay Iyer and Meshell Ndegeocello were featured in 2012. Grab a drink at the Royce Bar and take in the Romanesque architecture that makes this one of the more elegant places in the city to absorb jazz.

I have walked past Royce Hall a few times. Last week I witnessed the grandeur within at Oprah's Super Soul Session. It's an elegant and comfortable space. The sound quality was exceptional and despite it's large size, it creates intimacy as good theatre's should. A 1930's visual marvel, if your eyes tire of the performance then the gorgeous architecture offers respite. The venue has typical auditorium flip seats on the upper level, so it's a squeeze when people walk by.
