~ Happy Orchestra

Reached #5 on KEXP Northwest Music Chart
Nominated NW Recording of the Year – 2018 Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Awards
Rated 4 Stars at All About Jazz

“Happy Orchestra in a way encapsulates the jocular personality of its creator and leader, blending overwhelming positivity with virtuosity, utilizing the talents of some of the top jazz and funk soloists on the west coast. While the music may express the intricacies of modern jazz expressionism, it never loses sight of its soulful, horn powered grooves, supported by the rhythmic virtuosity and leadership of Abouzied on drums.”

Winnerz! Alternative Jazz Group of the Year

We’re excited to report that Happy Orchestra was voted 2016 Alternative Jazz Group of the Year by readers of Earshot Jazz! We’re proud and thankful to all the incredible musicians that contribute to the project and all of you for the support.

We’ll be back in action at the Ballard Jazz Fest, Out to Lunch Concerts, SAM Olympic Sculpture Park, Jazz in the Valley, Earshot Jazz Fest, and much more as we ramp up to the official release of the record this fall. Thanks for the love!
