About Orlando le Fleming

Orlando le Fleming was born in Birmingham, England on July 7 1976. Both of his parents are professional musicians; his mother a cellist and his father a composer. His first ambition was to become a professional cricketer, an aim that was realized when he played for five years in the minor counties. After receiving a place at London's Royal Academy of Music, Orlando decided to give up cricket and pursue his love of music.

While based in London,he quickly established himself as one of the UK's most prominent bass players touring and recording with Jason Rebello, Julian Joseph, Iain Ballamy, Tommy Smith, Jean Toussaint and Guy Barker. With the advantage of being based in Europe,Orlando was also in demand to perform and tour with visiting U.S. musicians such as Bill Charlap, Art Farmer, George Coleman, Dave Liebman, Joey Calderazzo and most notably, Branford Marsalis. Orlando moved to New York in 2003 and became a member of Jane Monheit's band, a stint that lasted for three years.He also toured and recorded with Billy Cobham's project “The Art of Five."

More recently Orlando has recorded with Jimmy Cobb, Seamus Blake, Ari Hoenig and has been performing with the Joey Calderazzo trio, Jeff “Tain" Watts and the David Sanchez quartet.
