In January of 2004, the Jim Cutler Jazz Orchestra was created to be the house big band at Tula's restaurant in Seattle. After a 15 year run of performing Sunday nights, the band is working on other projects, including working with area schools and communities, big band concert series, and recording original music.
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.
