The Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra
The Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra is the Rocky Mountain region's premier jazz orchestra. This 18-pc "big band" features male and female vocalists as well as Musical Director/MC. Recently celebrating their 12th anniversary as a performing group, the MJO is active in the Denver Metro area as well as the Colorado Springs area.
Featuring many of Colorado’s finest jazz musicians, the MJO is known for their diverse repertoire, performing both classic as well as present day NY/LA sizzling big band tunes. Enjoy classic big band charts from the early bands of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Woody Herman to the great swing tunes of Count Basie and Louis Bellson, as well as material from the libraries of Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich and Maynard Ferguson. Today’s finest composers and arrangers are also prominently featured including many of the military service band writers. Our vocalists, Suzanne Morrison and Doug Barta cover the vocal gamut from Harry Connick Jr., Michael Buble, and Frank Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald and Dianne Schuur. While the MJO covers this extreme range of music styles, they always strive to play arrangements that are recognizable and fun for the audience to enjoy! MJO’s Musical Director, Jim Mick also engages the audience with trivia and “fun facts” about the music they play.
