“These guys can hold their own with any big band on the planet! Great section work and sound, killer soloists, and swingin’ rhythm section! You can’t ask for more than that!” – Randy Brecker

The Latvian Radio Big Band was originally founded in the 1960s, but only recently did it return to the bandstand after a 16-year hiatus. This reborn big band has swiftly achieved international acclaim, performing and recording with the likes of Kurt Elling, Roberta Gamabarini, Jojo Mayer, Seamus Blake, New York Voices, and Randy Brecker.
