Jazz

A 16-piece jazz ensemble featuring top-notch musicians from the San Francisco area. In January of 1995, CJO founder and saxophonist Christopher Pitts established his hand-selected band as an exciting be-bop and post-bop experience, featuring the music of Thad Jones, Oliver Nelson, Frank Foster, Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus. In April of 2000, Pitts relocated to Boston, leaving the orchestra in the hands of saxophonist/arranger Alex Budman.
