“One of the young stars in the field of jazz composing and arranging”, Bill Holman (NEA Jazz Master)

Elliot Deutsch is proud to release his newest album, “Make Big Band Great Again.” Recorded at Capitol Studios with the very best next-generation musicians in Los Angeles, this CD is Deutsch’s best, and easily his most ambitious yet. All of the tracks tackle and critique current, political themes. Vote during the day, celebrate at night.

Elliot Deutsch has been a fixture of the Los Angeles Jazz scene since 2006, presenting his unique, exciting, and boisterous take on the art form. “Bringing my big band into its twelfth year, I decided that it is time for a change. I recently put over thirty of my pieces into retirement, allowing me to focus on a modern, funky sound. This change has allowed me to present a clear vision of the present and future of large ensemble music, and to establish my unique voice as a composer. I am extremely fortunate to have some of the very best players Los Angeles has to offer. This will be a momentous night of music.”

The 17-piece big band will perform all of the music from Deutsch’s brand new CD. They will also play old favorites, as well as new pieces Deutsch has written for his next project.

Elliot Deutsch has written arrangements for numerous artists including Arturo Sandoval, Take 6, Cheryl Bentyne, Max Weinberg, Columbus Jazz Orchestra, and the Kennedy Center Jazz Orchestra. Deutsch has recently arranged all of the songs for soon-to-be-released projects by crooner Mark Blake, and vintage jazz band Sasha’s Bloc. As a trumpeter, Deutsch has toured internationally with Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer Solomon Burke, The Urban Renewal Project, and others. He performs weekly with Fine Artist Entertainment’s That Vibe. Deutsch has served on the faculties of Long Beach City College and Cal Poly Pomona and was Vice President of ASMAC (American Society of Arrangers and Composers). He earned his Master of Music degree from the Bob Cole Conservatory at CSULB, and his BA from UCLA. His prior releases include “The Push!” in 2014, and “Weeknight Music” in 2009.
