Dizzy's Club

Miggy Augmented Orchestra

Big Band Mondays

With pianist/compositionist/arranger Migiwa “Miggy” Miyajima, reedists Ben Kono, Alejandro Aviles, Quinsin Nachoff, Sam Dillon, Carl Maraghi Trombones, John Mosca, Jason Jackson, and Jennifer Wharton; trumpeters Dan Urness, David Smith, and Matt Holman; guitarist Pete McCann, bassist Yosuke Terao, and drummer Jared Schonig.

The 17-piece Miggy Augmented Orchestra, under the leadership of Japan-born, New York-based composer and pianist Migiwa “Miggy” Miyajima, brings together rising stars and accomplished veterans in a radiant ensemble devoted to Miggy’s complex, melodic, and urgently swinging original music. Drawing inspiration from role models like Thad Jones and Jim McNelly, the Orchestra harnesses the excitement of jazz to express Miyajima’s experience as an artist shaped by life both in the U.S. and Japan. A gifted composer, Miyajima was a recent finalist in the BMI Charlie Parker Jazz Composition Prize. The Japan Foundation of New York has recommended this performance as "Profound art to discover the depth of Japanese and/or Japanese artists' work.”
