We Three Kings, is a modern take on the holiday classic arranged by co-leader John Lake for the NYC-based big band, The New Alchemy Jazz Orchestra. Vocal sensation J. Hoard brings new life to the traditional melody with soulful phrasing and soaring inflections. His performance is met with imaginative ensemble passages, as well as an intricate soprano sax solo by co-leader Steve Kortyka. This is the fourth single released by the 17-piece ensemble comprised of “some of the best musicians New York City offers” – (Broadway World). NAJO has featured a number of world-renowned guest artists including Peter Bernstein, Terell Stafford, Brian Newman, and Dick Oatts.





is an exciting 17-piece big band taking New York City by storm. Broadway World wrote they
are “the best musicians NYC has to offer”. The band performs new arrangements of classic and
contemporary works by the inspired co-leaders John Lake, Mike Sailors, Steve Kortyka, and
Danny Jonokuchi.

NAJO regularly features world-renowned artists like Peter Bernstein, Terell Stafford, Dick
Oatts, and Brian Newman. The four co-leaders create new arrangements for each special guest
for a highly unique performance.

In addition to stellar live performances, the band has recorded four singles featuring NYC’s
hottest talent. The first single “I’m Gonna Lock My Heart” features vocalist Alexa Barchini
and has received high praise in straight-ahead jazz circles and wider audiences alike.
Every holiday season NAJO produces a vibrant Christmas show featuring up to five featured
vocalists. These sold out shows showcase “gorgeous holiday charts” (WRTI) with elements of
funk, soul, R&B, and classic vocal swing.

Members of the orchestra are recognized around the world for being the most accomplished
soloists. Among the ranks are musicians that have accepted Grammy Awards, Tony Awards,
and have excelled at international jazz competitions.

For over two years NAJO has drawn standing-room-only crowds to their monthly residency at
the The Django, a subterranean jazz club located in the heart of Tribeca. Their future plans
include recording a full-length album of original compositions with celebrity guest artists.
