Quiet Orchestra is a Los Angeles-based ensemble that champions freedom and expression through music. In March 2007, a collection of musicians with jazz, rock and indigenous folk backgrounds met for the first time in an East Los Angeles studio. During the next two days, they recorded a collection of interpretations and improvisations featuring two guitars, two keyboards, two drummers, a bass, ceremonial Batá from Cuba, a Kunchin singer, a glockenspiel choir – and everyone singing.  A collective twenty-plus members and growing, Quiet Orchestra exists to bring diverse musicians together and engage new frontiers of sound.
