The TJO on Disc

The Toronto Jazz Orchestra has just released its fourth full-length recording, 20. Listen to and order 20, or our other CDs, below: the self-titled debut CD, Under A Tree and The Path. Each CD is available from CD Baby.


Released in May, 2018, 20 is our fourth independently released album. Recorded in May, 2017 at Revolution Recording in Toronto, 20 showcases the composition and arranging work of TJO Artistic Director Josh Grossman, and is a celebration of the TJO’s 20th anniversary. The seven original compositions and one arrangement reflect in part the range of musical influences that inform TJO performance repertoire: traditional big band swing, funk, rock, hip hop, samba, and free jazz. Highlights include the hit single "Georgie and Rose", and Grossman's four-part suite, dedicated to Phil Nimmons, called "4PN". Sample the album, and buy it from CD Baby, below. Also available on all of the usual streaming and download sites.
