Purchase Jazz Orchestra
Todd Coolman and Jon Faddis, Conductors
The Purchase Jazz Orchestra (PJO) is a 17-piece big band that performs jazz from every era. From staples like Ellington and Basie, to more modern works by today’s leading composers and arrangers like McNeely, Clayton, Abene, and Schneider, the PJO swings and is always a pleasure to listen to. Grammy Award-winning jazz bassist Todd Coolman, and legendary trumpeter Jon Faddis direct the group.
