Under the baton of trombonist John Sanks, The Albuquerque Jazz Orchestra plays The Cooperage (7220 Lomas NE) on Tuesday, Dec. 2. Founded in 1982 by legendary Burque jazzman Pancho Romero, the 17-piece orchestra has shared the stage with trumpeter Bobby Shew and composer Toshiko Akiyoshi, creating a big jazz sound that’s forward-looking, shrewd in execution and probably an ultra-tasty complement to the surf and turf on offer at The Cooperage. AJO features members of Burque’s jazz who’s-who, including saxmen Glenn Kostur and Lee Taylor, trumpeter Bruce Dalby, Chris Buckholz on trombone, Michael Anthony laying down some groovy guitar and the thoughtfully reactive piano playing of Jim Ahrend. This free, all-ages jazz experience begins at 7pm.
