WORLD'S EXPERIENCE ORCHESTRA picture
A large underground, vanguard, spiritual jazz group active in the 1970s and '80s in Boston and led by John Jamyll Jones.

The World Experience Orchestra was an underground jazz collective led by bassist, composer, and arranger John Jamyll Jones and was active on the fertile Boston scene between the early 1970s and the early '80s. A workshop group, their sound wed avant-garde, modal, and spiritual soul-jazz to post-bop. The lineup included anywhere from nine to 18 players and singers. During its existence, the WEO issued two privately pressed albums: 1975's The Beginning of a New Birth (recorded in a church basement), and 1980's As Time Flows On, on their World Productions label.
