The Ed Norton Big Band is Missoula’s professional jazz orchestra playing big band music from the 1940’s to the present. A traditional 17 piece instrumentation is sometimes augmented by a vocalist.
With a massive song list of great arrangements by the masters- Ellington, Basie, tunes of the great singers, Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald- What A Wonderful World to How High The Moon and Jobim’s Wave to the song Tequila, there is something everyone can appreciate.
Dancers and listeners alike will appreciate the glorious sound and rhythmic drive of the ensemble. Concerts, dances and receptions would all benefit from the addition of music by the Ed Norton Band.
