â€œThe New York Voices had the pleasure of performing with PJO and had a wonderful time. From the downbeat to the last note, the band displayed tight ensemble playing, great dynamic energy, and a nice feel for all of the various jazz styles. It made for a swinginâ€™ collaboration.”
Thanks for the tix Brad. I loved the band you guys are awesome!
â€œDirected by trombonist Chris Oberholtzer, the Portland Jazz Orchestra has been performing traditional and contemporary big band jazz literature since 2004. Their Album, â€œNorâ€™easterâ€, boast eight tracks, seven of them penned by the members of the band. The music flows effortlessly, naturally, smartly and with lots of passion. If youâ€™ve been lucky enough to have caught PJO in performance, their CD is a good reminder of what this exciting band can do. If you have not heard them, their CD should give you a teasing hint. Youâ€™ll want more.â€
