The American Jazz Composers Orchestra | The Peforming Wing of American JazzWorks

The AJCO

The American Jazz Composers Orchestra (AJCO) is the performing wing of American JazzWorks, a non-profit corporation registered in the state of Texas. The organization is dedicated to promoting and documenting new works for large jazz ensemble(s) created by American Composers.  Focusing primarily on living composers, the AJCO will accomplish its mission through performances, recordings, commissions, artist residencies, partnerships, and educational outreach.

History

American JazzWorks, and its performing wing, the American Jazz Composers Orchestra (AJCO) was incorporated in Texas in November 2011. Dan Cavanagh, Tim Ishii, and Ken Edwards had been running a big band for a year that was dedicated to presenting concerts of high artistic quality that focused on jazz music by living American composers. It became apparent that there was a need to grow the abilities of the band to present more and varied concerts to spread the word about much of the under appreciated music of today’s American jazz composers. Since incorporation, the organization has been active in promoting new works for large jazz ensemble through its monthly concert series.
