The pinnacle of the CJO’s 40th anniversary season will be a live concert event boasting a who’s who of CJO guest artists past and present. Stay tuned for special line-up announcements throughout the season plus behind-the-scenes glimpses at some of the magical moments that have formed 40 years of Chicago Jazz memories.
The Chicago Jazz Orchestra may have been around for 40 years, but just last May, Howard Reich, jazz critic for the Chicago Tribune, wrote “neither Marinaro nor the CJO has ever sounded better” (in his review of A CJO Salute to Sinatra at the Sands with Paul Marinaro.) See and hear why such high praise continues to roll in for Chicago’s oldest professional jazz orchestra. For more information, visit chicagojazzorchestra.org
