Et brag af en afslutningskoncert med solist WycliffeGordon, USA,

Aarhus Jazz Orchestra er et af Europas førende bigbands. Siden dannelsen af orkestret i 1977 af den legendariske Jens Klüver (dengang: Klüvers Big Band) har orkestret støt udviklet sig til at levere musikalske oplevelser i absolut verdensklasse. Orkestret består af nogle af de bedste musikere i den danske jazzarena, og flere af dem er solister i international klasse. Med mere end 100 koncerter om året har AJO arbejdet sammen med de største jazzikoner gennem tiden og det er efterhånden blevet en tradition at de runder festivalen af i et brag af en koncert – i år med den amerikanske crooner og trombonist Wycliffe Gordon.
