In January of 2004, the Jim Cutler Jazz Orchestra was created to be the house big band at Tula's restaurant in Seattle. Featuring some of the most talented musicians and composers in the Puget Sound area, this 16 piece big band carries on the tradition of great house big bands at the worlds finest jazz clubs, performing every Sunday at 8pm.
The Jim Cutler Jazz Orchestra has developed into a solid ensemble. Cutler's music is confident, swinging and exuberant and extends the modern tradition. It all comes together here.
