The Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra (WJO) is Canada’s first community-based, non-profit professional jazz orchestra; its equal can be found in only a handful of North American cities. Formed in 1997, the WJO has featured many of the finest jazz writers and performers in the world, including Rufus Reid, Bob Brookmeyer, Butch Miles, Bobby Shew, Curtis Fuller, John Riley, and many others. The WJO has also commissioned and recorded dozens of works for big band, including the recently released Suite 150: A Big Band Portrait (2018).
