New Orleans Jazz Orchestra at the Burlington PAC
February 27, 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm$69.50
The renowned New Orleans Jazz Orchestra is touring their new album Songs: The Music of Allen Toussaint inspired by the legendary composer and musician. NOJO is the first big band to take on the music of Toussaint and the results honour not only him, but the broader musical culture of his hometown. Be transported to the land of jazz and funk and experience the sounds of New Orleans right here in downtown Burlington.
New Orleans is a musical melting pot that has been cooking up music royalty for nearly a century. The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO), now in its 17th year, is dedicated to preserving the tradition of New Orleans music and culture while exploring the works of artists that would be considered outside of the realm of jazz.
Allen Toussaint and his music have influenced decades of musicians, bands, composers and listeners alike. Not only in New Orleans, but globally. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
To cover Toussaint’s music with integrity and love was important to NOJO’s Artistic Director, Adonis Rose, especially since he felt it was perfect long before any artists covered it. It is NOJO’s mission and responsibility to honor all New Orleans musicians and expose their music to the world and share the many contributions they have made to the arts.
