The-Hollywood-Jazz-Orchestra

ABOUT US

Two venues stand out in the 2023 Season. ROCHESTER INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL and LACMA.  The crowds were spectacular, overwhelmingly young, and exuberant in their appreciation of the music.  The realization that the audience for Jazz was expanding, forced us to make changes in order to meet the standards we aspire to, and are expected of us. Changes to the repertoire, changes to personnel. Changes for the better.

New arrangements, new partnerships. More commitment, more diversity. Innovation, imagination, energy, and a desire to take the music to the audience. Rock venues, as well as the Jazz Clubs, Concert Halls, and Festivals. Free Open Air Concerts when possible. The Hollywood Jazz Orchestra will bring it!

Hope to see you soon.

“We’re trying to change the preconceptions and expectations the public has about big band concerts. We’re not a group of old white guys playing tired arrangements of Ellington, Basie and Dorsey. We rock!
