OUJO’s performance skilfully combined their flair for electrifying big band classics and introspective, meditative jazz. This felt like a very special performance for the band given the prestige of the surroundings and the importance of the material, and the audience certainly got to share in that excitement.  Few other ensembles would have managed such a charismatic, technically impressive performance, and we can’t wait to see where they’ll go next.

Absoutely incredible… would definitely recommend.

Rajiv Dattani, Oxford Union Ball president

OUJO play with a youthful enthusiasm at a standard far exceeding their tender years. It was a pleasure to perform with them.

Nigel Hitchcock, 2015

OUJO is a really tight band- with great players and a creative ‘jazz ethic.’ A joy to sing with them

Tina May, 2015

While many big bands produce a mass of indeterminate horns drowning everything in their wake, OUJO are crisp, precise and brilliantly clear, trading off virtuoso solos and dense group harmonies with effortless ease.
