Broadway musicals have been the source of many notable jazz standards, and this album continues the DIVA tradition of reimagining great songs. Each selection on this recording has an inherent musical depth, context, and meaning, energized by our original interpretations that will hopefully elicit fond memories for our listeners. Each arrangement was commissioned to highlight the power, force, and beauty of The DIVA Jazz Orchestra’s ensemble sound, and to feature our ﬁfteen exceptional soloists.
The DIVA Jazz Orchestra is turning 30! We'd like to express our heartfelt gratitude to all DIVA band members past, present, and future; our creative, innovative composers and arrangers; our many business advocates, and our enthusiastic fans and friends from around the world. We’re us, because of you. We were founded in June of 1992 and had our first performance on March 30th, 1993 at New York University.
