[KEN MATHIESON’S CLASSIC JAZZ ORCHESTRA]

« back

Whatever the stylistic considerations, the CJO’s mission remains the same: to present quality performances of rarely-performed jazz masterpieces in an entertaining, innovative and informative way. Another essential ingredient of CJO’s performances is to preserve the joy, optimism and energy inherent in earlier forms of jazz and to make these forms accessible to modern audiences without dumbing-down.

We don’t actually have a motto, but if we had, it might read: “Like a good wine, the CJO combines the subtlety and complexity of age, while retaining the vigour and energy of youth.”
