The CJRO returns to Lone Tree Arts Center for a special night of jazz and soul and to celebrate the release of their latest recording Compared to What with Larry Braggs. Led by Colorado favorites Robert Johnson and Marion Powers on vocals musical numbers include; “Mercy Mercy Me;” “More Today Than Yesterday;” “Fascinating Rhythm” and of course, the title track “Compared to What.”


A major component of the CJRO’s mission is to introduce new listeners and jazz lovers to its music and fantastic musicians. After inviting former Tower of Power and Temptations lead singer, Larry Braggs to perform with the big band in 2021 and again in 2022 discussions began about collaborating on an album. The result is Compared to What with Larry Braggs, a fresh blend of jazz and soul including several new arrangements by CJRO artistic director Drew Zaremba, musicians Zach Rich, Remy Le Boeuf and Paul McKee. The recording will be available for purchase in March.

From the 2022 concert,  Larry Braggs sings “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore”

Founded in 2012 by bandleader, Art Bouton, with a mission to perform the best music with the best musicians, the Colorado Jazz Repertory Orchestra does just that and more. Exciting world-renowned guest artists and many of the finest regional musicians perform anything from rollicking big band classics to contemporary large and small ensemble jazz to enthusiastic concertgoers across Colorado.
