The fabulous Artistic Jazz Orchestra (AJO), making its premiere appearance at the magnificent Renaissance Theatre this summer, will bring the very best in big band jazz to Mansfield! Five saxophones, five trumpets, five trombones, piano, bass and drums never sounded so good! AJO Artistic Director Paul Martin has put together an evening of some of the orchestra's most requested numbers from the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, and many more! Many familiar musicians will be featured including lead alto saxophonist Thomas Reed and tenor saxophonist Bryan Olsheski, lead trumpeter Erik Gimbel, drummer Jim Rupp, and we must not forget the superb vocals of Kelly Knowlton! This will be an evening you will not want to miss—whether you are a die-hard big band jazz lover, or don't yet know you are one!
