Niel Levonius Trumpet Player – Monday Night Residency with “The Fil Lorenz Orchestra”
Blues and Bop: streamlined, big band intensity
The Fil Lorenz Orchestra is a high-voltage, crowd-pleasing big band born of the blues, with a sound defined by a searing, relentless horn section and an exhilarating, sometimes challenging repertoire of well-known burners and fascinating originals alike. To put it simply, the FLO can turn any club or festival performance into blues/bop celebration.
Baritone saxophonist/arranger Lorenz has assembled a musical cast of the highest standard, bringing some of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most accomplished and adventurous jazz veterans together with some of the fertile San Francisco scene’s most promising up-and-coming players.
