Luxembourg Jazz Orchestra

LJO was created to offer a musical framework based on the finest musicians from the local jazz scene and be a showcase of the Luxembourgish Jazz scene and invite international jazz stars to come to Luxembourg.
The band started back in 1993 when Ernie Hammes formed the ‘Tribute to Jazz Big Band’ for the ’93 edition of the ‘Printemps Musical’Today, many musicians of the original line-up are still on board, backed-up now by young blood recruited among the uprising new jazz-musicians.
Today, the Luxembourg Jazz Orchestra can count on a strong line-up able to perform nearly every style of music you can ask of a modern big-band. From old-school swing to hard-bop, we cover the whole musical range of jazz-music and are always seeking new challenges by inviting internationally featured guest-artists from all around the world.
