The Memphis Jazz Orchestra was founded in October, 1992 at Joyce Cobb’s night club on historic Beale Street. Since 1997 The MJO has been in residence at Alfred’s on Beale Street.
The M.J.O. has distinguished itself in a series of concerts featuring such national jazz artists as guitarist Herb Ellis, trumpeter Marvin Stamm and pianist James Williams.
A powerful and disciplined ensemble with virtuosic soloists and a command of many styles makes a concert by the Memphis Jazz Orchestra a truly memorable event.
