RAYJO provides an opportunity for advanced players of saxophone, trumpet, trombone and rhythm section instruments to rehearse with vocalists and perform in a big band setting. Our diverse repertoire stretches from the syncopated complexities of The Bird, via the smooth close harmonies of Gil Evans to the rhythmically tight playing of true Funk or the Latin cross-rhythms of Chick Corea and Tito Puente
