“…vibrant and swinging…” – JazzTimes

Just in time for Mardi Gras, Grammy Award-winning New Orleans Jazz Orchestra features 18 of the finest Crescent City musicians on the scene today. Under the direction of drummer Adonis Rose, an alum of Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, NOJO possesses the swing and swagger of a true New Orleans big band. With The Music of Congo Square, NOJO honors the wide-ranging influence of the Big Easy’s own Allen Toussaint – the legendary composer, musician, and producer – and the broader musical culture of their hometown.
