In 2000, Grammy award-winning trombonist and 2011 NEA Jazz MasterDelfeayo Marsalisformed the Uptown Music Theatre (UMT), a non-profit organization that empowers youth through educational programming and musical theater training. Then in 2008, Marsalis formed its sister organization, the Uptown Jazz Orchestra (UJO). The two organizations enjoy a symbiotic relationship – UJO musicians offer a rich talent pool from which to draw instructors for UMT and UMT musicians are likewise often guest performers for the UJO.
Featuring up to 18 accomplished musicians at any given concert, the Uptown Jazz Orchestra sets the global standard for celebrating jazz in its authentic musical form, inspiring the next generation of jazz musicians and promoting a culture of diversity, inclusion and accessibility in the arts.
For many years prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Uptown Jazz Orchestra performed every Wednesday for enthusiastic fans in our intimate listening room. On packing a full jazz orchestra into a tiny historic jazz club: "Whatever you have to do," the trombonist says philosophically. But when the band plays the swing and bebop hits from the 1930s through the 1960s, the music is just as tight. From Mardi Gras music to modern jazz, this band does it all. An intimate experience like no other!
