ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The JazzMN Orchestra is a nonprofit jazz arts organization and professional jazz orchestra based in Minnesota's Twin Cities area. Comprising 17 of the finest jazz soloists and ensemble players in the state of Minnesota, this remarkably versatile group performs in an annual concert series featuring international jazz artists, in addition to educational outreach events throughout the region.

This CD is a compilation of live recordings from the JazzMN Concert Series at the Hopkins HS Performing Arts Center, Minnetonka, MN; the Dakota Jazz Club, Minneapolis, MN; and the Ted Mann Auditorium, Minneapolis, MN. The JazzMN Orchestra performs music familiar to general audiences and at the same time, introduces works, new and old, which lead listeners to discover the magic, mystery, beauty, and fire contained within the jazz art form. We invite you to share in this great adventure. Enjoy!
