The New Regency Orchestra
The New Regency Orchestra (NRO) is a twenty-piece big band on a mission to take the music of the Afro Cuban musical saints and reinvent it through a 2021 London filter. This is hard-blowing music for hard times featuring a storming twelve-piece horn and eight-piece rhythm sections.
The NRO takes its inspiration from New York’s melding of Jazz and Latin from the 50s to the 70s when the sound of jazz luminaries Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker collided with the Cuban roots of Chano Pozo and Machito.
Mirroring the effervescence of that scene, The New Regency Orchestra adds a contemporary London spin with the City’s best Latin Music and Jazz talent driving each other to greater heights.
