The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra- NOJO
1436 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., New Orleans, Louisiana 70113
The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO) stands on the shoulders of many Jazz legends and it is our privilege to honor one — Herbie Hancock — with a tribute concert featuring music from his 5+ decade career.
The special guest of the evening is Grammy and Emmy Award winning pianist, Robert Glasper. The Los Angeles Times once wrote that “it's a short list of jazz pianists who have the wherewithal to drop a J Dilla reference into a Thelonious Monk cover, but not many jazz pianists are Robert Glasper,” adding that “he's equally comfortable in the worlds of hip-hop and jazz,” and praising the organic way in which he “builds a bridge between his two musical touchstones.” Hailed by listeners and critics, Glasper has also garnered the respect of the toughest audience of all: musicians from across the jazz spectrum.
