"What the world needs now is more swinging and less skirmishing; long live Swinging Europe and the EJO." Jack Bowers; allaboutjazz.com
Since 1998, every year the Danish-based organization Swinging Europe puts together a European jazz big band tour under the name of the European Jazz Orchestra - EJO.
Each year a new conductor, new compositions and a new line-up of 19 handpicked musicians, aged 18 - 30. In 2010 EJO will be conducted by Slovene Tadej Tomšič on the Europe tour.
