Monterey Jazz Festival Next Generation Jazz Orchestra

Doing splendid arrangements … it roared through 95 minutes of playing.” – Pittsburgh Tribune

Every year, the Monterey Jazz Festival drafts 21 of America’s most gifted high school jazz musicians to form a dazzling jazz orchestra. With great chops and repertoire ranging from contemporary to classics, it’s no wonder NGJO plays festivals from Japan to Austria.
