About the event
Founded in 2002, the GRAMMY® award-winning New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO) was formed to celebrate and fortify the American jazz portfolio with an emphasis on developing the New Orleans Jazz industry. Led by artistic director Adonis Rose, the 18-piece ensemble has an ever-increasing repertoire that exemplifies the influence of jazz as the grandfather of modern American music. NOJO and its members are true ambassadors of American music, and membership spans several generations with more than 100 years of combined professional experience. NOJO has performed and recorded with myriad artists across many genres and have headlined all the major United States performing arts venues.
On its latest release, Songs—The Music of Allen Toussaint (Storyville 2019), NOJO investigates the mind and music of New Orleans piano legend Allen Toussaint, whose music has influenced generations spanning more than 50 years. In its inimitable swinging style, the orchestra performs original big band arrangements of Toussaint’s greatest hits, including “Southern Nights,” “With You In Mind,” “It’s Raining,” “Ruler of My Heart,” “Java,” and “Working in the Coal Mine.”
