Contemporary Jazz Orchestra

Few sounds equal the thrill of hearing a talented, tight-knit jazz orchestra play live. CJO delivers a swinging rhythm section, high-octane brass and a polished repertoire.

The Contemporary Jazz Orchestra is a 17-piece jazz ensemble, featuring many of the finest musicians in the Bay Area. In the long-standing Monday night tradition of New York's Village Vanguard Orchestra, the CJO has been playing Monday nights at Jazz at Pearl's in San Francisco for ten years.
