OHIO ARTISTS ON TOUR
The Columbus Jazz Orchestra is known for its bold sound and has built a strong reputation by recreating the big band music of masters such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Stan Kenton and Gil Evans. By incorporating contemporary arrangements into its repertoire and commissioning new masterworks for the jazz orchestra, the CJO promotes the future of big band jazz and cultivates the dynamic, adventurous spirit that has kept audiences coming back again and again.
We have four concert programs featuring the best of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra big band:
'A Night in New Orleans' captures the joy of a New Orleans brass band, the excitement of Mardi Gras and pays tribute to the immortal Louis Armstrong.
'The Great Gershwin' is a magical of the great American Songbook and synonymous with the sounds of The Jazz Age: I Got Rhythm, Embraceable You, They Can't Take that Away from Me.
''In the Mood'' puts the spotlight on swing and the glory of the big band era with the music of Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller and others.
'Ain't Nothin' But the Blues’: A swingin' big band and some down-home blues in a jam session packed with blues and boogie woogie - the soulful music deeply rooted in the rich tradition of jazz.
In addition to the big band, we have smaller ensembles that can be tailored for your event. Please check out our website and give Louis Tsamous a call.
