The Appel Room 2019-2020 Season

Adonis Rose & the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra

with René Marie and John Boutté

What to Expect

  • A wide range of musical styles performed with a New Orleans sensibility
  • Two star vocalists with a fun-loving big band
  • Free pre-concert discussion about the music and artists at 6pm and 8:30pm

The Grammy Award–winning New Orleans Jazz Orchestra takes the sonic power and stylistic versatility of a big band, adds a New Orleans emphasis on groove and accessibility, and applies it to an unusually expansive repertoire of originals, jazz staples, New Orleans classics, and pop, rock, R&B, and soul hits.

Under new leadership from artistic director and drummer Adonis Rose, the band is showcasing more of its range than ever before. The NOJO is a band for all types of listeners and an especially great entry-point for new fans of jazz. The band is equally fun when it gets down to basics with classic New Orleans tunes, and its genre-crossing surprises just further prove that New Orleans’ unique musical energy can reinvigorate all types of American music.

To top it off, tonight's performance features vocalist and New Orleans native John Boutté and Grammy Award–nominated vocalist René Marie, a modern icon well-loved by Jazz at Lincoln Center audiences. NOJO offers you a fresh take on what it means to be a jazz big band, and it exemplifies the mantra that “all jazz is modern.”
