KUKURU JONA FREEDOM ORCHESTRA WITH WARREN OREE

600 North Broad Street
Philadelphia Pennsylvania 19130
215-600-0220

Kukuru Jona is loosely translated in Swahili as “Short Fire”.  This orchestra “burns”  it’s presentation of jazz and music classics as well as  original compositions.  Created in 2011 by bassist Warren Oree, leader of the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble and  producer of The Philadelphia United Jazz Festival .

This orchestra is “free” because it has no limits in repertoire ,genre, or approach to music. Warren believes that “Music is a big house with lots of rooms!”  They play everything from John Coltrane, Marvin Gaye, Henry Mancini,  Thelonious Monk, Jimi Hendrix and others.

 They range from 10 to 17 players depending on the venue or theme  of a particular concert. All the musicians are notables on the Philly Jazz Scene and several lead their own groups.  The music is solid without a lot of rules…..and loose without being chaotic.  This orchestra continues to explore its  many options, and the music community is invited along for the ride.

 Doors open at 6PM - come early to get the best seats! Tickets are $10 and available via www.ticketfly.com.
