Jazz, Irvin Mayfield & the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, March 3, 2012, Patron Sponsors Maris, Ivan, and Harry Meyerson

Overview

A tasty musical gumbo, here's classic New Orleans jazz served with blistering Creole heat! Founded by trumpeter, composer, and bandleader Irvin Mayfield, the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO) has headlined at a host of major American venues and clubs, including Benaroya Hall in Seattle, the Ravinia Festival in Chicago, and Jazz at Lincoln Center. The Grammy-nominated and Billboard Award-winning Mayfield leads the band with a sense of unrestrained virtuosity and fun, and has emerged as "a leading voice of the Crescent City's modern jazz tradition" (Detroit Free Press). NOJO's repertoire is steeped in the jazz canon of New Orleans, and includes original compositions by Mayfield and big band scores by Duke Ellington and Count Basie.
