Carrollton Jazz Orchestra
The Carrollton Jazz Orchestra is a twenty-piece jazz band in residence at the Center for the Arts in Carrollton, Georgia. Constructed in the traditional instrumentation of the “big band”, with saxophone, trombone, trumpet and rhythm sections augmented as need by additional reeds, brass, and percussion, the CJO is a collective of professional musicians including soloists, ensemble players and composer/arrangers who value the creative opportunity to rehearse and perform challenging and complex jazz in the context of a contemporary jazz orchestra format. Our concert repertoire includes Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sammy Nestico, Mel Lewis, Buddy Rich, Chick Corea and many other jazz greats.
