Escape To Asylum is an album (LP Vinyl) released by the Fullerton College Jazz Band in 1982, it was the initial recording from an award winning group who become the Down Beat Magazine 1st Place Award Winner in the College Big Band Jazz category for 1983.
In 1981 the Music Department at Fullerton College built a 16 track in house recording facility which was to serve as a teaching tool for both student music groups and students wanting to take recording technology classes at a vocational level. Escape To Asylum is the first of many albums to come out of this studio to feature the award winning Fullerton College Jazz Band. The LP contains tracks from two of the Fullerton College jazz groups: Jazz Band I and Connection Jazz Combo. The roster on this album is self-evident as to the diversity and level of student musicians Fullerton College developed at that time and has for many years.
Tracks for this album are also on the AM~PM Records 1985 release Unforgettable and also on the 1998 CD Celebration - The Fullerton College Jazz Festival 25th Anniversary.
