THE ORCHESTRA picture
The Orchestra is a 18 piece Big Band, that features prominent Danish jazz musicians and composers. From The orchestra's debut performance at the Montruex Jazz festival in 1991. the band has a particular homogenous and transparent sound, that conveys the musicians dedication to working as a unit - and to playing the often difficult music with the strongest possible conviction.

The different composers cover a very wide scope off musical concepts, ranging from groove-and melodic oriented approaches to inspiration from contemporary classical composers. A common factor though, is an awareness and knowledge of the Big Band tradition. Most of the composers have been part of the Bob Brookmeyer Composition Workshop in Copenhagen 1996-99.

The Orchestra has released 4 CD's and performed in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, UK and Switzerland. The band is supported by the Danish Music Council.
