THE LIFETIME VISIONS ORCHESTRA is a project to create and promote music and healing through the unique and positive music written and improvised by its extraordinary members. Shaku Joseph Jarman and Chris Chalfant lead the group. The Lvo's opening concert, on September 23, 2001, changed from a John Coltrane memorial to an inspiring September 11 memorial. The LVO has since opened for the 2002 Vision Festival in New York City and performed at the Nancy Pulsations Jazz Festival in France, and continues to perform peace and healing concerts. Our first CD, Vision Festival 2002 is available under Jyaku Sound, a project of the Brooklyn Buddhist Association. The orchestra includes Shaku Joseph Jarman, woodwinds, Thomas Buckner, vocals, Chris, Chalfant, piano and vocals, Jessica Jones, tenor sax and flute, Tony Jones, Tenor sax, Mark Taylor, french horn, Steve Bernstein, trumpet, Steve Swell, trombone, Tomas Ulrich, cello, Michael Braudy, violin, Rob Garcia, drums, Ken Yamazaki, percussion, Ken Filiano, bass, and special guest, Richard Thomas, storyteller.
