ABOUT

//  Composer, Producer and Band leader Jungsu Choi has had diverse rolls in all areas of music, be it orchestra, big band or electronic music.

 

In his ten years of working in Europe, he has built a remarkable musical career and studied jazz composition, film music as well as electro-acoustic music at Vienna Conservatory and Kingston University London.

 

His unique compositions and arrangements have been played by numerous orchestras and big bands. He has written for modern dance, musical, theatre, TV spots and film and also holds a leading position as educator with Korea’s World Cyber College. 

He released his debut album in 2011 with his first own jazz big band based in London, the name of JUNGSU CHOI New Jazz Orchestra in London. 

Since then at this time, Jungsu Choi has assembled again a formidable contemporary large jazz ensemble with Korea’s best jazz musicians - JUNGSU CHOI TINY ORKESTER.

 

They show an incredible performance, transporting Jungsu’s exceptionally demanding music with skill and creative solo performances.The compact big band Jungsu Choi Tiny Orkester shows well how modern, orchestral jazz can interpret old jazz standards in a unique fashion.

 
TINY ORKESTER

”JTO has put together a sensational record that not only revitalizes both big band and fusion but also spawns something entirely new...absolutely slay. Incredible.”

★★★★★ Music-News.com / UK

“Choi's Tiny Orkester leaves no doubt that it is a topnotch player...He is a talented composer / arranger who certainly bears watching”

★★★★★  All About Jazz / US

 

"These ensembles broaden horizon of jazz expression. JTO can't help sounding conservative. While Choi's writing for his Korean band is far from precdictable, he achives a big band sound with a 10 piece unit.

 JAZZIZ / US

 It should certainly be considered for best jazz orchestra… & I can’t emphasize it strongly enough – this IS the NEW JAZZ!
★★★★★  Contemporary Fusion Reviews / US

“At the moment, twelve high-profile musicians from Korea..They will open a new horizon in this year.”

In whatever direction jazz might develop, I am ready to welcome the new jazz, bye-bye jazz era!
Our music is meant to free jazz from jazz, without any labels. 


Twelve first-class Korean jazz musicians have come together under the name of Jungsu Choi Tiny Orkester. Their European debut Tschüss Jazz Era was released on Challenge Records, followed by a stage debut at BIMHUIS Amsterdam and at the Tillberg Theatre on 28 December 2017.

JTO is a big jazz ensemble consisting of five horns, cello, male voice, a four-piece rhythm section and composers with a unique, contemporary jazz interpretation and modern, original compositions.

Jungsu Choi has put together a great contemporary jazz ensemble with Korea’s best jazz musicians: Jinho Pyo (voice), Eunmi Kim (flute), Yusun Nam (alto saxophone), Hachul Song (tenor saxophone), Yejung Kim (trumpet), Junyeon Lee (trombone). They show an incredible performance, transporting Jungsu’s exceptionally demanding music with skill and creative solo performances.


The compact big band Jungsu Choi Tiny Orkester shows well how modern, orchestral jazz can interpret old jazz standards in a unique fashion.

"A big surprise will be the 12-man orchestra of the South Korean Jungsu Choi, with a kind of turbo-mix of jazz tradition, idiotic arrangements , hip grooves andelectronics."​
Jazzenzo / Netherlands
Daniel Schnyder, Dmitri Tymoczko and a few others have done this in their jazz-classical hybrids, and this is what Jungsu Choi has done here.This is not just a good disc.
This is a stupendous disc.
Art  Music Lounge / US 
I’m telling you right now folks – this CD is a WINNER… in fact, I predict that it will be recommended for (and WIN) several awards – it should certainly be considered for best jazz orchestra… & I can’t emphasize it strongly enough – this IS the NEW JAZZ!....

Jungsu Choi Tiny Orkester is a terrific large ensemble and with Choi’s creative leadership, compositional and arranging skills has produced this exceptional recording.

Jazz & Blues report / US

The arrangements are incredibly direct, almost strident at times, with a different approach to what one would normally expect from European or American musicians....Overall it was quite a surprising album
