Fresh Cut Orchestra


The Fresh Cut Orchestra is a 10-piece new instrumental music ensemble led by trumpeter Josh Lawrence, bassist Jason Fraticelli, and drummer Anwar Marshall performing the “jazz of tomorrow” (Downbeat). The band has been earning an “underground” following with artist residencies at the Painted Bride Art Center and Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, performances at Shapeshifter Lab, Nublu, Underground Arts, the Center City, Philadelphia International and Lancaster Ave jazz festivals, and educational workshops including masterclasses at UPenn, Drexel, UArts, GSU, and Emory. The music of FCO is an eclectic blend of “straight ahead” jazz, contemporary classical, progressive rock, hip hop, and modern electronica. The roster includes musicians from New York, Philadelphia & Los Angeles who have performed/recorded with artists like Erykah Badu, John Legend, Matisyahu, Orrin Evans & the Captain Black Big Band, Terell Stafford & the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia, Dave Douglas, Tom Harrell, Nicholas Payton, Marcus Strickland, Taylor McFerrin, Cyro Baptista, and John Zorn among others.
