Chicago Jazz Orchestra

The Chicago Jazz Orchestra is Chicago’s oldest continuously operating professional jazz orchestra. Founded in 1978 by Jeff Lindberg and the late Steve Jensen, the Jazz Members Big Band became the Chicago Jazz Orchestra Association in 1999.

Jeff Lindberg represents a new breed of American conductors, equally adept with the literatures of the American jazz orchestra and the European symphony orchestra. His vision and leadership, coupled with his skills as a transcriptionist, place the Chicago Jazz Orchestra at the forefront of American jazz for the 21st century.
