A world-class ensemble made up of 17 jazz greats, the WJO’s debut CD became one of the most frequently played jazz CDs in the nation bringing national recognition to the ensemble earlier this year. In January, WJO’s CD All In zoomed onto the JazzWeek chart, a weekly tally of the top 50 jazz CDs played by radio stations nationwide and in Canada, peaking at number 4 the week of March 10. All In enjoyed a 13-week run on JazzWeek.
