The Tower Jazz Composers Orchestra, The TJCO has been the natural evolution of two previous didactic music projects: "The Unreal Book" and "The Tower Jazz Workshop." Throughout the years, these experiments have reached a more synthetized dimension and contributed to create a strong band dynamic, focusing today on a repertoire based on original compositions and arrangements. The orchestra is led by two prominent Italian musicians, Alfonso Santimone and Piero Bittolo Bon. The sensitive and empathetic qualities of the twenty-three artists involved add constantly surprising creativity filled with fresh musical ideas, playing original tunes specifically written for and by the Orchestra but also by reviewing music from all over the world.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
