Chris Heslop Jazz Orchestra

Chris Heslop Jazz Orchestra
Eighteen-piece modern jazz orchestra

After several years of intensive writing with the BMI/New York Jazz Orchestra, Chris has formed a Philadelphia-based all-star ensemble to execute his challenging repertoire.

Works are influenced by classics like Basie and Ellington, modernists like Abene and McNeely, as well as French Impressionists, Sci-Fi films and Sasquatch and are performed along with several fresh arrangements of timeeless jazz standards.
