Louisiana Repertory Jazz Ensemble
- Louisiana Repertory Jazz Ensemble
- 9-member group of New Orleans-based musicians
This best loved musical group returns to TJS to help us celebrate our 20th anniversary of The January Series! The LRJE is a nine-member group of New Orleans-based musicians who have been performing classic New Orleans jazz in absolutely authentic formats with period instruments since 1979. Members of the ensemble can trace their musical or family/musical genealogy to the earliest days of jazz. Veterans of years on Bourbon Street, Mississippi steamboats, and in local brass bands, the LRJE players are drawn form all the racial and ethnic groups that make up the New Orleans "melting pot". The LRJE has performed at the Grammy Awards, the prestigious Doubleday Lectures at the Smithsonian, numerous jazz festivals in Connecticut, New Orleans, Chicago, Atlanta as well as in France, Hong Kong, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Russian. The group has made six recordings.
