About Adam Meckler Orchestra
The Adam Meckler Orchestra is an 17 piece jazz ensemble that plays all original music composed and arranged by Adam Meckler. Adam is an Edwards Instrument Co. performing artist and clinician, and the band features some of the Twin Cities’ most exciting young jazz musicians including Nelson Devereaux (Bon Iver), Cameron Kinghorn (Nooky Jones), Adrian Suarez (Jazz at Lincoln Center), and is widely recognized as one of the premier jazz ensembles in the area. The AMO has held residencies at Vieux Carré, The Artist’s Quarter, and Jazz Central and has appeared on the Main Stage of the Twin Cities Jazz Festival in 2014 and 2016. AMO released their debut album “When The Clouds Look Like This” in September of 2014 to critical acclaim. In December of 2014 iTunes listed “When The Clouds Look Like This” among the year’s best releases in jazz.
What Other People Have Been Saying...
“…The orchestra creates atmospheres, walls of sound, supportive strains, riffs, or plain old silence, sitting aside when intimacy must triumph over grandeur. Meckler wisely knows when to use everything at his disposal and when to simply let things be.” AllAboutJazz.com
