Adonis Rose and the NOJO 7 of New Orleans Jazz Orchestra
Possessing an inimitable swinging style, the mighty NOJO 7 has performed and recorded with a veritable who’s who of artists across all genres. Led by Grammy Award-winning drummer and Artistic Director Adonis Rose, this 7-piece ensemble, which honors the dynamic traditions of New Orleans brass & rhythm, is drawn from the full New Orleans Jazz Orchestra. Ingrained with soulful grooves and energetic group interplay, NOJO 7 performs the music of New Orleans’ legendary pianist and songwriter Allen Toussaint, whose music influenced generations spanning more than fifty years.
