The Alan Chan Jazz Orchestra has emerged, since its formation in 2011, as one of the brightest lights on the Los Angeles jazz scene. Last year, Chan gathered a group of topnotch studio and jazz players—19 pieces in all, plus guest trumpeter Wayne Bergeron—and produced a two-day session. "Shrimp Tale" is ACJO's debut album, released by Crown Heights Audio Network.
