Ottawa Jazz Orchestra : Symphony in Riffs

Saxophonist, clarinetist, trumpeter, composer, arranger, and bandleader Benny Carter was one of the greatest legends of jazz. In this programme the OJO celebrates Carter’s music with an 18-piece big band featuring an array of solo spots that pay homage to his sound on the alto saxophone. The jewel amongst myriad gems will be Carter’s Central City Sketches, a six-movement suite that recalls Kansas City and the swing era. Join us for this swinging and thrilling finale to our season with a sound that only a band of this size can deliver.
