Outside Inside

Tonight, the AJO present two sets of original compositions and arrangements. Set one features pieces composed by writers outside of the current AJO membership - Thomas Botting, Jesse Wood, Nathan Haines, and set two comprises pieces composed by writers inside the current personnel - Mike Booth, Andrew Hall, and Tim Atkinson.

In 2009, Mike Booth and Tim Atkinson founded the AJO with the primary intention of showcasing new and original New Zealand compositions.

The AJO draws its membership from tertiary graduates, music teachers and professionals. They all have the common goal of promoting local music and testing their collective skills in a Big Band setting. The 17 piece jazz ensemble has performed with a variety of guest soloists and singers, both local and international.
