New Alchemy Jazz Orchestra
The New Alchemy Jazz Orchestra (NAJO) is an exciting 17- Piece Big Band co-led by some of New York City’s most inspiring youngt alent: John Lake (trumpet), Mike Sailors (trumpet), Steve Kryka (sax) and Danny Jonokuchi ( trumpet and conductor). NAJO exclusively peroforms new arrangements of classic and contemporary songs as well as original works.
The band regularly features world-renowned guest artists like Peter Bernstein, Terell Stafford, Alexa Barchini, and Charles Turner, and has produced a big band holiday showcase called “A soulful Christmas.” Members of the orchestra are comprised of the most accomplished up-and-coming soloists NYC has to offer. NAJO has a monthly residency at The Django, a subterranean jazz speakeasy located in the heart of Tribeca.
