The 17 piece Asheville Jazz Orchestra is dedicated to preserving and advancing the big band jazz tradition.
The premier big band of western North Carolina, the Asheville Jazz Orchestra has been delighting audiences since 2006. Drawing from a wide variety of influences, a performance by the AJO will range from the swing era sounds of Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Benny Goodman to the progressive sounds of Thad Jones, Gordon Goodwin, and Stan Kenton to premiering new charts by local composers.
