Danny Carmichael Jazz Orchestra

Danny Carmichael Jazz Orchestra

The Danny Carmichael Jazz Orchestra (previously the DC Big Band) was born in 2015 when big band veteran Danny Carmichael decided to create a big band that performed the big band repertoire created by such greats as Thad Jones and Bob Brookmeyer, but also to develop a vehicle for outstanding local soloists, arrangers and composers to highlight their art. You can check out the sound of that line-up in the Youtube video linked below.

The Sydney jazz scene, with its considerable  depth of players, is probably the perfect place in Australia to undertake such a project.

Since it opened Foundry616 has become the leading Sydney jazz club presenting big band including the Jazzgroove Mothership Orchestra, the Sydney Jazz Orchestra, the Divergence Jazz Orchestra the Cam McAllister/Danny Carmichael Big Band, the Small Talk Big Band, the Sirens and smaller, “pocket” sized big bands such as Ten Part Invention, the Mike Nock Noctet , the Sydney Women’s Jazz Collective and the Glenn Doig Collective.

From its formation it has performed sold out shows and subsequent to the recent spot accompanying Rex Richardson is in fine form. Come celebrate the 2018 with us at Foundry 616.
