Recently passing its 30 birthday celebration with a gala concert on December 17, 2015, the ten-piece Either/Orchestra has been continuously redefining the mid-size jazz ensemble throughout its storied history. Incorporating Latin and Ethiopian elements into a group large enough to execute a broad range of compositional effects, the E/O remains small and nimble enough so that all the players are improvisers and engaged in the act of creation. Based in Massachusets and still led by founder, saxophonist and composer Russ Gershon, the group features members from the Dominican Republic, Brazil and the U.S., ranging in age from 25 to 62.
