Big O is the name of a Japanese Big Band that specializes in playing famous jazz and contemporary songs. Big band music, or orchestral music, originates from the classic period of American Jazz. Big bands were initially formed during this time to amplify the sound of stringed instruments over horns because they are louder than other wind instruments. Big bands became a mainstream music fixture in the 1920s and 30’s thanks to famous artists such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Louis Armstrong and many more. Big O began in 1996 in Nagoya, Japan when Big Band veteran Hiromitsu Agatsuma decided he wanted to bring Big Band music back to Japan after a fifteen year hiatus. Big O has produced many albums and played across Japan in a multitude of cities, including one performance at the world famous Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City. Big O plays a wide variety of songs from composers such as Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, Cole Porter, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and The Beatles.
